MSU: Summer Writing Camps for Students Grades 3-12
March 1, 2023
Registration is now open for Montana State University’s summer writing camps for students in grades 3 through 12. The camps will be held in July on the MSU campus.
The Youth Writing Camp is a five-day camp that runs July 10-14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students entering grades 5 through 12 in fall 2023. Students can either be dropped off each day or stay in an MSU residence hall and take meals in the dining hall. The commuter price is $275 through May 30 and $300 after that date. The residence hall option costs $725 through May 30 ($750 after that date).
The Young Writer’s Camp is a four-day camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students entering third and fourth grades in fall 2023. Running July 11-14, the Young Writer’s Camp does not include an option to be housed on campus. The price is $225 through May 30 and $250 after May 30.
The camps are filled with activities like walking field trips, writing games, and specialized workshops led by local writers. Participants receive guidance and feedback throughout the writing process from licensed educators and will learn how to write in multiple genres.
A writing showcase will be held on Friday, July 14, and allow parents to join the campers to celebrate their creativity. The Young Writer’s Camp showcase is scheduled for 1 to 2 PM, and the Youth Writing Camp showcase is from 2:30 to 4:30 PM.
Both camps are presented by the Yellowstone Writing Project and MSU Continuing, Professional, and Lifelong Learning. The camps are led by teachers and junior counselors from the Yellowstone Writing Project, which is based in MSU’s Department of English in the College of Letters and Science.
