Summer Writing Camp: Grade 4/5/6 — July

Sunday, May 31 - 9:00 AM

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 with any questions.   ||   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:   ||   Rising 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders — July 6–10 | July 13–17 | July 20–24 | July 27–31 — 9:00 am–4:00 pm — There is so much writing fun to be had during your week of camp. From reversing poetry to developing campfire tales that will give you goose bumps, to solving mysteries, and of course at least one activity where we get messy with art supplies, there is nothing we can’t imagine in this camp.
