Young Writers Summer Camp

    Registration for half-day camps and applications for full-day intensives are open.

    We're so excited to welcome youth back to Lighthouse this summer! Our in-person camps will be limited to 9 students each and held in Lighthouse's largest classrooms to allow space for social distancing. Rooms will be cleaned before and after each camp. Masks will be required for all campers and instructors. We'll spend some time outside each day, too!

    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 are offering both in-person and virtual camps during summer 2021. To browse through our summer camps and Summer Writing Intensive options, please click here
