*online* Thurber House Summer Writing Camp: Grade 7/8/9 – June

May 31, 2020 9:00 am @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Thurber Summer Writing Camp is 26 years old! Join us as we cook up creative writing adventures, stories, poems, plays, laughter, and more for students in grades 2-9. Campers work with professional authors over five days filled with field trips and fun activities designed to develop every young writer’s talent and imagination. Grades refer to the grade that the camper is entering in Fall 2020. Camp regularly sells out, so don’t wait! For more information or to explore camps for other age groups, visit: www.thurberhouse.org/summer-camps. \ Rising 7th, 8th, and 9th Graders — June 1–5 | June 8–12 | June 15–19 | June 22–26 — 9:00 am–4:00 pm — Due to popular demand, we welcome incoming 9th graders to camp! You’ll try your hand at out-of-this-world sci-fi writing, obviously dabble with poetry, practice your dialogue writing and knowledge of movie quotes, and enter The Magic Shop of Lost and Found. There’s so much we can’t possibly list it all. // Register: www.thurberhouse.org/summer-camps.

IMPORTANT UPDATE — Virtual Camp and Preparedness Plans — 4/30/20: JUNE CAMPS: **For everyone’s safety, we are moving our June weeks of Thurber Summer Writing Camp online.** We will still have the same awesome, inspiring, and fun teachers and activities, and we are even working on a special camp t-shirt and certificate! The difference is that we will be visiting you from the other side of the computer screen. JULY AND AUGUST CAMPS: We will continue to evaluate the changing conditions as we approach our July and August camps to determine how to best proceed with those camps. Please email Meg Brown at [email protected] with any questions.
