Young writers engage in a variety of creative writing experiences that help them develop and improve the quality of their writing.  Camp activities include daily journal writing, age appropriate reading, and other activities that expand the campers’ writing world.  Because the camp offers a relaxed atmosphere with writing and reading activities, both indoors and outdoors, students learn more about themselves, their peers, and the world in which they live.  Additionally, the program offers opportunities to participate fieldtrips including writing at the Newseum, WHUR, WHUT, the Kennedy Center, and the International Spy Museum.  At the end of the session, campers receive an anthology of their writing. For maximum benefit, we recommend that your child be enrolled for the entire two and a half weeks.


Tuition: $275.00 per week / $550 for entire camp
Non Refundable Registration Fee - $25.00
