This camp, for rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, will explore the world of writing through fun and engaging activities while in a supportive environment. Throughout the week, your young author will discover writing strategies and learn about finding their unique style and voice.  Our writing coaches will walk them through every stage of the writing process:  brainstorming topics, writing a draft, revising their work, and preparing it for publication.  Each day will include a combination of activities from discussion with a local author to a trip around campus for inspiration.


Middle and High School – Creative Writing Camp (Space is limited)

This camp, grouped separately by middle school and high school, will provide students with a fun, engaging, and impactful week of creative writing while in a supportive environment.  Our focus is to teach students writing techniques and strategies designed to improve their existing creative writing skills.  Each day will include a combination of activities from discussion with a local author to a trip around campus for inspiration.
