There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is requested using the Google Form below.


2018 Chippewa River Writing Camps

This summer, we are pleased to offer two different camp opportunities on CMU’s campus.

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 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. Select the camp you want from the drop-down menu.

Registration ends Friday, June 8. Cancellations with a full refund will be accepted through June 8 and issued to the credit card used for registration; after June 8, there will be a $20 cancellation fee.

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