Youth Writing Camps: Registration Opening Soon!

Summer will be here before we know it, which means school will be out of session and students will be looking for things to do. Have them check out Appleseed Writing Project’s Youth Summer Camps; registration will open March 31st for students entering grades 4 through 12.

We have 2 sessions running June 12th – 23rd:

Students entering grades 4, 5, & 6 will attend from 9 am – 12 noon.

Students entering grades 7, 8, & 9 will attend from 1 pm – 4 pm.

We have 1 session running June 12th – 16th:

Students entering grades 10, 11, & 12 will attend from 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm.

No previous creative writing experience is necessary for our youth camps—only a desire to write and a willingness to participate in the daily activities.  All students must behave in an appropriate manner at all times.

The curriculum for our camps is updated annually for returning campers.  These campers will experience new writing activities in addition to participating in the special activities that are a hallmark of our camp.
