Information

Young Writers Camp Philosophy

Students come to the camp to experience being in a community of writers. The teachers guide that community and teach students skills to expand their writing abilities. The students work in small groups, as well as getting some focused attention from teachers.

Students will be free to create unique original pieces of writing in this communal environment. Students will make friends, learn to work collaboratively with others, and have great fun writing. We strive to provide students with an enjoyable experience that will leave them with a positive attitude about their ability to write.

Intermediate Summer Camp

New in Summer 2017, The Young Writers Camps have created a new section of camp to provide an experience more similar to the Secondary Summer Camp, yet still focusing on writing skills and content needed at this intermediate level. Students will be required to write more independently than in the Elementary Summer Camp. They will spend their time partly with the secondary camp, and partly on their own.
