Young Writers Camps

Turn this Summer into more than a Story! 

IMG_6982Summer 2015 marks the 19th year for the Bay Area Writing Project’s (BAWP) Young Writers’ Camps, one of the most desirable summer enrichment camps in the area.

Sponsored by the Bay Area Writing Project of UC Berkeley, the camps offer kids a unique opportunity to develop their creative abilities and writing talents. In a relaxed camp atmosphere, campers will receive specific writing instruction and conference individually with staff to build and reinforce their writing skills. The camps are for students who like to write! They are not remedial writing camps. Students will have time to explore their writing interests, discover their strengths, and learn more about the craft of writing. The camps provide in-depth writing instruction, extended periods of writing time, flexibility in writing projects, and daily time to share writing with peers.

Instructors are highly experienced classroom teachers who serve as BAWP Teacher-Consultants and who make it their goal to instill in each camper an appreciation, excitement and enjoyment of writing.
