Thurber Summer Writing Camp is 26 years old! Join us as we cook up creative writing adventures, stories, poems, plays, laughter, and more for students in grades 2-9. Campers work with professional authors over five days filled with field trips and fun activities designed to develop every young writer’s talent and imagination.

Grades refer to the grade that the camper is entering in Fall 2020. Students may only register for one week of camp. Enrollment is first-come, first-served. Camp regularly sells out, so don’t wait!

Due to popular demand, we welcome incoming 9th graders to camp! You’ll try your hand at out-of-this-world sci-fi writing, obviously dabble with poetry, practice your dialogue writing and knowledge of movie quotes, and enter The Magic Shop of Lost and Found. There’s so much we can’t possibly list it all.
