Summer Day

Writer's Retreat

GirlSummer Writer's Retreat

This program, led by a current Emma Willard English Faculty member, is the place for the girl eager to work on an existing piece of creative writing or turn an idea to print. We welcome writers interested in deepening their practice and craft through free-writing, workshopping, editing, redrafting, and presenting. Poets, essayists, novelists, short story writers, bloggers, journalists, and fan-fiction writers are all welcome.
Once your daughter’s schedule is finalized and distributed on the first day of camp, there will be no schedule changes. This is to ensure that we are maintaining proper social distance guidelines and keeping the health and wellbeing of our camp community as a top priority.
This is a robust half-day one week program offered to girls entering 7th through 9th grade. After lunch, she will join electives of her choice.
