Summer Writing Camp Registration is Now Open!

We live in a creative world where ideas, collaboration, and adaptability are a must–and writing is essential. So how do we prepare our children for their future? How do we ensure that they become thoughtful leaders for change, passionate learners, and curious thinkers we need to improve our world? Through Summer Writing Camp, young people discover the power within themselves – to create, innovate, and connect with others.

Summer Writing Camp works because it’s where writing is an exploration. It’s where one day your child will write the ending to a 3-act play with a group of friends, and the next day they publish their first poem. It’s where they’ll begin to see what they can become. Whether they’re not sure how to get started or they already write a million pages a day, they’ll feel at home writing here. This is where the spark of creativity begins.


The Only Place Where Children Learn from Talented Writers
Many have Masters and PhDs in writing and education. Our instructors are experts at this. And they’re ready to help your child shine.

How We Measure Up
For 20 years, Dr. Carl Scott of the University of St. Thomas has evaluated the success of the program and found students improved in writing skills, creativity, and self-confidence.
