Choosing a writing camp 

What’s the best way to choose the right writing camp for your child? Start with your child—their aims, goals, age, experience, interests, etc. 

  • Is your child aiming to just learn the basics of writing? Or are they looking to take an important step towards a career in this field? 
  • Do they want to focus on a specific area of writing, such as poetry or creative writing? Or are they looking to acquire a general background in the basics of writing?

Then, you should look closely at the camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. Learn as much as you can about each camp to gauge whether it’s a good fit for your child.

Here are some key questions to ask:

  • What courses/programs do you offer?
  • What level (e.g., introductory, intermediate, advanced) are they at?
  • What exactly do they cover?
  • What’s your teaching/instructional approach?
  • What skills can I expect my child to come away with?
  • What qualifications do the instructors have?

It can be helpful to dig even deeper. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on creative writing, ask some of the following questions:

  • How do you teach creative writing?
  • Is there a specific approach you use?
  • How much direct instruction do you offer?
  • How do you provide feedback?
  • Does my child need any specific background in this area?
  • Do you focus more on short stories or novels?
  • Do you have course syllabi or daily schedules?
  • How might creative writing help my child?
  • What educational opportunities or careers might this provide the basis for?

For further guidance on choosing the right camp for your child, check out the following resources:

Round out your research

Camp might seem like an easy decision, but it’s not. It’s best to get a sense of the landscape before you make your decision. A great place to start is the Our Kids camp expo, held each winter in Toronto. You’ll find many camps there, including writing and journalism camps, and you can speak with directors, staff, and campers. We also offer valuable information sessions at the expo.
