MSU offers summer writing camp for youth grades 5 - 12

Registration now open

Registration is now open for Montana State University’s Youth Writing Camp, which will be held on the MSU campus from July 9 to 13, according to the MSU news release.

The program, hosted by the Yellowstone Writing Project, is a multi-day, creative writing workshop complete with walking field trips, writing games, guidance and feedback throughout the writing process. Participating students will write in multiple genres in an “unschooled,” informal setwting, sharing their writing within a supportive community of peers and certified educators.

The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and is open to students entering grades 5 through 12 in the fall. It is led by teachers and junior counselors from the Yellowstone Writing Project. Based in MSU’s Department of English, the Yellowstone Writing Project is comprised of teachers who write and writers who teach.

An evening reception to be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 13, will allow parents to join their campers and the Yellowstone Writing Project team to celebrate the students’ creative writing.

Registration is now open and will remain open until the camp is filled.
