Turn this Summer into more than a Story!

Campers Writing

Thank you for a wonderful summer! Please note the BAWP office will be closed from August 24 through 28, 2015.

Sponsored by the Bay Area Writing Project at UC Berkeley, our camps offer kids and teens a unique opportunity to develop their creative abilities and writing talents. Our Young Writers Camps (for incoming 3rd through 9th graders) offer a relaxed atmosphere where campers will receive specific writing instruction and conference individually with staff to build and reinforce their writing skills. The camps are for students who like to write! They are not remedial writing camps. Students will have time to explore their writing interests, discover their strengths, and learn more about the craft of writing. The camps provide in-depth writing instruction, extended periods of writing time, flexibility in writing assignments, and daily time to share writing with peers. Instructors are highly experienced classroom teachers who serve as BAWP Teacher-Consultants and who make it their goal to instill in each camper an appreciation, excitement and enjoyment of writing. We also offer an exciting array of Teen Writing Camps (for incoming 9th through 12th graders) on the UC Berkeley campus.

Get ready for Summer 2015!

“My daughter had a fabulous time last year and described the experience as being in heaven! It really brought out the best in her as a writer and she made many friends.”

“I’m glad I came because I made new friends and I had to get all the hidden ideas out of my brain on to paper.”
