Camp Description: Have a budding poet, storyteller, or thespian? If so, enroll your child in our week-long Creative Writing camp taught by nationally recognized, award-winning faculty at Queens. Young artists will come together in a fun and supportive environment to explore fiction, poetry, and theater through collaborative, interactive experiences. Students will choose a favorite character to create their own fan fiction, learn how to write form and free verse poetry, and participate in the creation of a one act play. Campers will take an urban writer’s walk to Freedom Park for a picnic and writing field trip. Students will receive one-on-one feedback about their writing, and at the end of the week, students will create a literary journal of their original work and participate in a public reading showcase for parents.

|Check out what last year’s parents and campers had to say about the creative writing camp experience: 4.7 out of 5 rating!|
“I wish there was another summer session this year!”
“It was really fun, more fun than I’d like to admit. I had the most fun on poetry and diction days. I love drama but that play wasn’t my best work. Quiplash was really fun, and I loved joking around about hot dogs.”
“I loved the opportunity of sharing my writing and experiences with my peers, and have feedback on my work. I also loved the fact that I could hear what people my age feel and write with their own fantastic perspectives. Really eye-opening, loved it.”
“It was so much fun! Mrs. [Sarah] Creech is a spectacular teacher, I was always excited to get on and talk to everyone, and I made a lot of new friends. Quiplash was a blast, and I learned so much!”
“I felt like I connected with everyone in the camp. I felt like I learned a lot. It was a good way to spend a week of the summer!”
“My daughter was highly engaged with this camp and found it to be a very rewarding experience. After months of lackluster remote learning, our expectations were pretty low for a remote camp. However, we were blown away by the level of organization, thoughtfulness, and enthusiasm demonstrated by the instructors. Great experience!
“…there was some terrific teaching and ingenuity on display.”
“Each camper has their own voice and it really came through in the product of their week.”“This has been a wonderful experience.”
