Camper Stories and Publication Opportunities!

Back in January, we shared part of a camper story written by one of Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp's counselors. At that time, the full stories were not yet available on the MHKC @ PSU website, but guess what! All of the stories are now available to read here

Below is another little taste of what can be found in these colorful camper stories. This is the first page of a story about camper Conor O'Grady.

And, on the subject of essays, stories, and community involvement, we have some information on a rad opportunity for many undergraduate students who have worked with community-based organizations like Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp.

The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research is looking for submissions in six categories:
1. Reflective Essays (Many MHKC counselors already have something like this!)
2. Analytical Essays
3. Research done in partnership with a community organization
4. Research Articles
5. Open Category
6. Response to previously published articles
The journal is a refereed, multi-disciplinary, online publication open to undergraduate students worldwide. It is dedicated to publishing intellectual and reflective work on service learning, community-based research, and all related curriculum- and/or research-based public community engagement activities. 

For more information about the journal and how to submit, visit their website. They are accepting submissions through June 15th.
