The whole experience of camp goes toward helping students see themselves as writers and as a community of writers. Campers learn from each other as well as their instructors and professional writers how to craft real writing for authentic purposes and audiences

Why do young people choose Young Writers’ Camp?

It’s not like school: Imagine a place where learning and fun are the same.

It’s a stress-free, nonjudgmental, open environment.

It gives campers freedom to write on topics and genres that interest campers.

It teaches “the rules” for writing, but also ways to break those rules.

Even its academic classes allow students to be creative.It’s full of writing exercises that tease the mind and bond you with fellow campers.

It’s a place to find and make friends; it’s a place to find people like you.
