Writing Camps

The National Writing Project in New Hampshire, a site of the National Writing Project, is dedicated to improving the teaching of writing in our nation’s schools. Since 2002, we have offered summer institutes for the best teachers of writing in the state. Each summer we also offer unique day camp experiences specifically for young writers.

This summer we are also offering two one week residential programs for high school students. Students who attend will write in journals, write poetry, work with professional authors and illustrators, write on  computers, conference with peers and teachers, revise and publish their writing. The camps afford an opportunity to enjoy being part of a community of writers. Summer Day Camps for Young Writers and the Summer Institute for Young Writers are planned and staffed by National Writing Project in New Hampshire teacher consultants.

Please print the release of liability form for your child’s camp and the medical form below. Completed forms should be sent with your child on the first day of camp and given to the camp leaders. It is not necessary to mail these forms in advance. If you do not have access to a printer you must fill out the forms during drop off on the first day of camp.
