    During the summer, Spells hosts a free 6-week writing camp with morning sessions for ages 7–12 and afternoon sessions for ages 12–16. Each week-long program focuses on a different writing theme, such as adventure stories, songwriting, mysteries, or animation.

    But our campers don’t just sit around writing all the time—we find inspiration for our stories through interactive games, group brainstorming sessions, and outdoor play.

    Students may sign up for individual weeks or for the entire 6-week session. Registration is free, but requires a refundable deposit of $25 per student.
