Writer's Retreat

GirlSummer Writer's Retreat

This program is the place for the writer 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 child's schedule is finalized and distributed on the first day of camp, there will be no schedule changes.
This is a robust half-day two-week program offered to those entering 7th through 9th grade. After lunch, campers will join the rest of the camp community in the remaining two electives of the day.
