Young Writers Summer Camps

Provided by
Olbrich Botanical Gardens

The Greater Madison Writing Project, in partnership with Olbrich Botanical Gardens, is sponsoring camps for young writers entering grades 3-8.

Participants will write daily at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, using the beautiful gardens as inspiration in a supportive environment. Programs are led by a staff of Greater Madison Writing Project Summer Institute Fellows and experienced teachers of writing whose goal is to inspire and support writers of all abilities. Through brainstorming, drafting, revising, and editing, participants will produce a finished piece of writing that is then published. Young writers will share their favorite pieces of writing from the week with their families and friends at an evening celebration on the last day of camp.
