Time 2-3:30pm

Price $100 for one week; $175 for both weeks

Are you tired of sheltering in place? Are you longing for a creative escape? Let’s gather virtually and write together! Join Kirsten Casey for a week of creative writing prompts, discussion, sharing, and fun through your screens! (Unlike regular camps, you are free to come in your pajamas, writing wherever you are most comfortable!) This is a great opportunity to meet other teen writers in our community, and to share in and support one another’s writing. From poetry to character studies, short stories to flash fiction, you will practice a different type of writing each day of the week. Although we can’t be together in the usual way, we will connect and create through the internet, with the same goal: to become better writers.

  • Teen Writing Matters 
  • The skills, tricks, and art of the trade are where the meat of this camp lies. Anyone, be them poet, novelist, screenwriter, or just lover of the written word, will find that their perception of the craft will shift and grow in unexpected and delightful ways. Kirsten gives every student a chance to look inside themselves as writers, find their place (or places), and utilize the knowledge she provides to put a spin on their own unique styles. Plus, it never hurt to try new things, and this camp has some curve balls you won’t see coming. (Price: $200) Learn More >
  •  
  • Theater Camp 
  • Bring your curiosity or passion for theatre and performing, and come create a show to perform for friends and family on the last day of class.  We explore “principals of good acting and character development” through theatre games, skill development exercises, mini-plays, skits, poetry, and Broadway songs.  We throw in a bit of Improv to keep us all on our toes.  We spend part of the time each day learning music, lyrics, and choreography from Broadway musicals and movies. (Price: $195). Learn More >
