Young Writers Summer Camp 2024

If your child has a passion for writing or wishes to explore their curiosity about writing, the Young Writers Summer Camp at the Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester would be a perfect fit for them.

During this one-week program, your child will practice various styles and genres alongside peers who share the same love for writing. They'll be mentored by experienced writing teachers who will use engaging activities, along with individual and group instruction, to assist them in honing their skills and exploring new techniques and ideas. The week culminates in a reading event for families and friends where our young writers will each share one of the pieces they worked on during camp.
