Summer Writing Camps Offered

Registration is now open for Montana State University’s summer writing camps for youths in grades 3 through 12. The camps will be held in July on MSU’s campus.

The Youth Writing Camp is a five-day camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 8-12 for students entering grades 5 through 12 in fall 2024.

This camp offers commuter and resident options. Students in the resident option stay in a residence hall on campus and eat in the dining hall, while commuter students return home each day.

The Young Writer’s Camp is a four-day camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students entering third and fourth grades in fall 2024.

Running Tuesday through Friday, July 9-12, the Young Writer’s Camp only has a commuter option.

The camps will have activities such as field trips, writing games and specialized workshops led by local writers. Participants receive guidance and feedback throughout the writing process from licensed educators and will practice writing in multiple genres.

A writing showcase will be held on Friday, July 12, to allow parents to join the campers to celebrate their creativity.

Both camps are presented by the Yellowstone Writing Project and MSU Continuing, Professional and Lifelong Learning. Teachers and junior counselors from the Yellowstone Writing Project, based in MSU’s Department of English in the College of Letters and Science, lead the camp.
