The Yellowstone Writing Project's Young Writer's Camp is a four-day writing workshop for kids entering grades 3-4. Campers will be immersed in creativity and engage in activities to encourage writing across genres, writing in the community and building up writing stamina. Licensed educators (our YWP teacher consultants) will provide feedback, encouragement, and a few of their favorite writing tricks! Campers will also have the opportunity to publish their work in a group anthology. The camp will close with a writing showcase. 


Early bird $250 (through May 31, 2024)

Regular $275 (after May 31, 2024)
