What is Young Writers Camp?
For over 25 years, SCWriP’s Young Writers Camp Programs have offered students an opportunity to explore the many facets of writing, regardless of their skill levels. Our outstanding staff of certified classroom teachers have completed SCWriP’s Invitational Summer Institute in Composition and Critical Literacy at UCSB. Students participate in a stimulating learning environment that creates a community of writers to give optimum support and growth. Activities include:
- autobiographical sketches
- short stories
At the end of camp, familes are invited to celebrate as students read their best writing. All campers receive an anthology of their published work.
