Tuition includes five days of small group instruction, choices from 20 different writing clubs,
a camp t-shirt, camp knap-sack, composition notebook, pen, daily writing prizes and incentives,
snack, camp magazine, and visit from professional author along with a signed copy of one of their latest books.
At the beginning of the day, campers work with Carrie and Emily alongside other kids their own age in their homeroom. Here, they share what they’re working on and learn how to use new writing techniques to make their work shine even brighter.
Each year, professional authors visit our camp to give our campers advice, teach them about the life of a professional writer, and (of course) sign books. Past guest authors include Brandon Mull, Jessica Day George, J. Scott Savage, Jennifer Nelson and Mark Pett.
Every year, we select a small group of high school and college-aged interns to help bring Write On to life. Our interns each act as a writing coach for a small group of students throughout the week. Students flock to them for writing advice, to share stories, or even just for a high five.
Are you ready to take your writing to the next level? We’re bringing back TEEN EDITION for our 2024 summer camp!
