What is Youth Writing Camp?

At Youth Writing Camp, students:

  • improve their writing skills,
  • meet new friends,
  • become published authors, and
  • celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family!

Students learn from experienced and effective classroom teachers and have access to computers at Ball State University. They participate in a creative workshop experience writing stories, poems, and essays taking a close look at the power of word choice, voice, organization, sentence fluency, organization, and presentation. Students develop their writing skills as they spend time immersed in the writing process and receive personalized feedback through participation in peer response groups, teacher conferences and author's chair.

Who should attend?

Students of any writing ability in grades 3-12.

Where will camp be held?

All classes take place at Ball State University, in the Robert Bell building.

How much does camp cost?
