Creative writing encompasses a wide range of storytelling genres, from fantasy to poetry, memoir to playwriting, and everything in between, including cross-genre and hybrid forms. In this exploratory camp, students will engage with artistic activities, embark on field trips in-person and virtually, and write to creative prompts all designed to ignite their imaginations. The week will culminate with a reading and/or presentation of student work.
This camp is for students entering 5-6th grade in Fall 2023 and will take place in-person at our facility in Capitol Hill. All camps break for lunch from 12-1pm each day.
Scribes Summer camps are offered on a scaled registration rate in order to offer financially accessible programming for all youth. Payments above the 100% rate help offset costs that allow for accessible programming to continue. Donations of any amount can also be made upon registration. Scholarships are also available by filling out our scholarship application. Questions? Please email email@example.com.
