CTWP teachers share the belief that students learn to write when they are inspired in a supportive, non-threatening environment. Our goal for our youth programs is to give all young writers, regardless of skill level, the opportunity to compose in a variety of styles, to become more self-confident in their own writing ability, and learn to appreciate the abilities of others.
Due to social distancing recommendations that resulted from the covid-19 pandemic, the university campus was closed in 2020. Consequently, our camps were delivered online for the first time since we began our program in 1998. Fortunately, the campus was opened again in 2021 and we offered both online and face-to-face camps.
