Young Writers Camp Philosophy
Students come to the camp to experience being in a community of writers. The teachers guide that community and teach students skills to expand their writing abilities. The students work in small groups, as well as getting some focused attention from teachers.
Students will be free to create unique original pieces of writing in this communal environment. Students will make friends, learn to work collaboratively with others, and have great fun writing. We strive to provide students with an enjoyable experience that will leave them with a positive attitude about their ability to write.
Elementary Summer Camp
The University of Illinois Writing Project sponsors writing camps in the summer led by experienced teachers. The Elementary Camp provides an enrichment opportunity for young writers. Students learn how to write in a variety of genres including:
