Summer Writers' Camps


At the Summer Writers’ Camps sponsored by the Center for Writing in College, Career, and Community, participants develop their craft in an intensive workshop experience, exploring a variety of genres and writing strategies. Students get immediate feedback from their peers and from teachers who are practicing writers.

Led by teacher consultants from Ozarks Writing Project, each week-long camp offers a different focus, with the opportunity for students to sign up for more than one camp.


Full-Day Camps (Gaming Camp, Creative Writing Camp, Writing for College and Career Readiness Camp)  
One Camp $300
Two Camps $550
Three Camps $825
Half-Day Camps (Young Writers' Camp, Lego Story Starter Camp, Stop Motion Animation Camp) $175


Full-day campers will bring sack lunches or purchase lunch in Plaster Student Union. Half-day camps do not have designated lunch times. Notebooks and pens will be provided, but bring your personal laptop or tablet if you prefer.
