Young Writers Summer Camp

    Registration for half-day camps and applications for full-day intensives will be available February 1, 2021.

    Lighthouse's Young Writers Program camps are led by published and award-winning writers, and each workshop is designed to foster creativity, self-expression, and excitement about writing. Half-day, full-day, and extended day options are available for all age groups throughout the summer. Camps will run June through August 2021.

    We plan to offer both in-person and viftual camps during summer 2021. We'll post more information as the year unfolds.
