Time, Space, Support, Community…
Led by accomplished writing coaches who tailor activities to the age and interests of each group, Creative Writing Camps provide young writers with the time, space, support, and community they need to nurture their passion for writing.
Each day includes some light-hearted activities, age-appropriate lessons on the craft of writing and, best of all, time to write. The grounds at all our locations provide a lovely setting for gathering inspiration and listening to the writer within. We work outdoors as much as the weather will allow.
During the week, our writers share their work with others in a small writing circle to receive valuable input and support. Many list this as their favorite part of the week because they may not have writing friends at school or in their neighborhood. Friendships form quickly and last beyond the end of our week at camp.
On Friday, young writers stage a studio reading of their favorite writings. Participation is optional. Friends and family are encouraged to attend.
