Turn this Summer into more than a Story! 

Summer 2018 marks the 21st 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 campatmosphere, 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 and enjoyment of writing.

“I liked the visual quick writes that we did the majority of the mornings in camp. They gave you a basic idea of what you had to write, but still let you thing outside the box. Although everyone based their stories on one picture, it was fun to see how everyone had different stories.” – 2015 YWC Camper

“I will remember reading at book passage. It was so fun and exciting.” – 2015 YWC Camper
