University of Illinois Writing Project Young Writers Camps

Students come to the camp to experience being in a community of writers.  Our 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.  

Week 1:  July 27 to July 31, 2015

Week 2:  August 2 to August 7, 2015
