Boulder Writing Studio presents our
Young Authors Project
A creative writing summer camp for Boulder area youth!
Our summer camp is an exploration of storytelling. Your son or daughter will learn and develop those critical narrative skills of character, plot and setting, while working in a fun, safe learning environment.
Kids work with each other and our dedicated team of Studio staff to brainstorm story ideas, write drafts and polish their work. Utilizing the vast opportunities presented by multimedia today we’ll explore storytelling by incorporating visuals and graphic storyboarding, movement and kinesthetic learning, music, poetry, and daily excursions to encourage creativity and find inspiration all around us. Lessons are organized around small, daily projects, culminating in a printed collective and presentation for family and friends.
Our goal is to expose your child to the joys of storytelling through a multifaceted, interactive approach. Stories aren’t just about sitting down and writing, but about conveying experience and meaning. We want kids to come away from this feeling inspired and excited about writing and the narrative process in all its forms.
How long is the camp?
5 days a week, 9:00-2:30pm (aftercare option from 2:30-5:30pm)
What are the age limits?
Young Authors are divided into 3 age groups:
Little Storytellers— 6-8 years old
Kid Writers— 9-12 years old
Teen Authors— 13-17 years old
Projects and daily activities are tailored to the respective age groups; all campers will come away with a deeper knowledge of storytelling, new friendships and a love for the written word.
