A Note About Camps During COVID-19:
For the last few weeks, The Cabin team has been working hard to come up with our best plan for a safe 2020 summer camp season. Even though we are starting to see our city slowly open so we can start life in our “new normal,” there is still so much unknown about how we will safely interact with one another for the next few months. Because of this safety concern, combined with low enrollment, we have made the difficult decision to cancel June camps with the hope it will be safe to run an in-person reduced camp season during July and August.
Safety is our first concern, and we will continue to update our camp safety page with more information:
Thanks for your flexibility and understanding while we work to reschedule our programs. If you have a camper signed up for our summer camp season in June, check for an email from Patron Services Coordinator Gen Emerson. If you have any additional questions about camp, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents! Now’s your chance to help your child improve their writing skills the fun way!
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.
