Registration for Summer Youth Writing Camp Open

Registration for the SNWP Summer Youth Writing Camp is now open. The dates for this year's camp dates are back to June, from the 15th-26th.  There will again be two sites for grades 1-6, with locations at  Simmons Elementary and Paradise Elementary.  

This year, the secondary camp will only include grades 7-8, and that camp will be held at UNLV. 

Please visit the Youth Writing Camp page for details and registration information. 

There will not be a camp for writers in grades 9-12 this year. In lieu of a 9-12 camp, high school students who have participated in previous camps are invited to serve as mentors for the writers in grades 1-8. This is a volunteer position only. Please e-mail snwpyouthcamp@gmail.com for more information.
