The Cabin’s SUMMER WRITING CAMPS — led by Boise’s best pro writers — are weeklong literary adventures for students going into grades 3 – 12. Whether your kid is a writing wizard, writes about wizards, or needs a little help getting inspired, our camps provide what they need to fuel their creativity and make writing fun.
Through hands-on exploration, camp students practice the tools they need in order to write well. Your camper will encounter challenging prompts, write lots of new work, and learn how to revise their writing with an eye towards publication. At the end of camp, campers share their writing at a public reading and select a piece for publication in The Cabin’s end-of-year print anthologies.
