Announcing Our 2016 Writing Camps

Announcing our 2016 Chippewa River Writing Camps!

CRWP Youth Camp ImageThe Chippewa River Writing Project aims to provide youth and fellow community members with unique opportunities to write and learn about themselves as writers.

This summer, we are pleased to offer four different camp opportunities, three on CMU’s campus and one in Portland.

Together we’ll be sharing a love for writing. Let your child join us on an exciting journey through engaging activities as we live out our “writerly lives.”

Your enrollment cost will provide transportation and admission to field trips, snacks, a writer’s journal, camp T-shirt, and a copy of our camp anthology, commemorating our published works. We ask that students  bring their own lunch each day.

Enrollment this summer is limited to 20 participants in each camp, so sign up now using our secure web form.

All registrations must be complete by June 10, 2016. Should you need to cancel your registration, we will accept cancellations with a full refund through June 10, 2016, after which we will charge a $20 cancellation fee.

Questions? Please contact CRWP Director, Troy Hicks, at troy.hicks@cmich.edu, or the camp directors listed on the PDFs.
