Adventures in Writing Camp

<< More Summer Camps

A strong foundation in writing makes school less stressful… and kids more successful!

Adventures in Writing Camp (AIW Camp) offers in-person and online writing programs for children entering grades 1-8. Their programs are highly energetic, with a mix of indoor and outdoor instruction. In addition, innovative, credentialed teaching professionals use music and theater to help children build a love of writing.

Hosted online and in-person at three Northern Virginia locations (Herndon, McLean, and Leesburg), as well as Washington, DC, AIW Camp recognizes that there are a variety of learning styles, and they have designed their programs to connect with students with a range of interests and abilities. Their camp curriculum and activities reflect their commitment to recognizing what makes each young writer unique.

At camp, children entering 1st grade develop story skills, while campers entering grades 2-5 publish their own eBooks, and middle school campers create their own short story and turn it into an “animatic” storyboard video. In addition, music, theater, and ample outdoor learning (and play!) make an experience very different than traditional “writing camp” programs.

They also offer after-school writing programs and one-on-one tutoring through their “Jump Writing” offering.

A child who loves writing writes more frequently. A child who writes more frequently becomes a better writer. Better writers tend to love writing. It’s a virtuous cycle!
