Enrollment Now Open: Online Writing Summer Camp for Kids

Do you have a child who loves to write? Want to help them experience rapid growth in their writing without leaving home, and help them have an educational, interactive experience from home?

The Write Camp is a fun-filled online summer camp for young writers. Brought to you by The Write Practice, an award-winning community for writers, we bring together students with professional writers to help them develop a passion and aptitude for writing.

What Is the Write Camp?

We’ve gathered a group of bestselling authors, professional writers, and award-winning teachers to create a fun, interactive, week-long writing experience.

Camp sessions are all held online and last an hour and a half.

Writers ages 9-14.

We combine the right blend of writing instruction, encouraging feedback, and lots of fun for kids. 

By the end of the week, your student will have finished a new story and be entered into a writing contest!

During your child’s Write Camp experience, they’ll get to:

  • Learn from professional writers
  • Find and develop ideas for writing
  • Write their own story, ready to share by the end of camp
  • Practice revising their own work, using feedback
  • Build their creative muscles and writing confidence

If you are tired of your kids mindlessly consuming media and ready to activate the creative writer inside them, sign up now to give your writer the encouragement they need to keep developing their talent!

The Write Camp Is For…

Elementary writers who staple together their own books to share with grandparents, neighbors, and anyone in earshot.

Teens who loves to write but their passion has deteriorated while churning out essays for school. 

Young readers who love books and just want to spend more time with stories.

Kids who enjoy writing and need more learning opportunities during the summer as other camps get cancelled.
