The Oregon Writing Project Collaborative Young Writers’ Camp is a 10-day, 30-hour, summer experience that inspires creative thinking and writing. Students learn to explore writing styles, analyze published authors’ writing, be playful, share their writing in a supportive community of writers.
OWP Young Writers' Camp instructors are certified teachers who have completed a 4-week Summer Institute in the teaching of writing. We use the writer’s workshop model that draws on student interests, experiences and wonderings, as well as each child's interests in writing and literature. The majority of the camp time is focused on students actively engaged in the writing process. We recommend the camp for both aspiring authors and for those who enjoy reading,but need a boost in the area of writing. If your child likes sharing stories, making new friends, and is willing to try new things, this may be the chance to take his or her writing to a new level.
