Words With Wings Summer Camp (Ages 8-14)

July 10, 2017 - July 21, 2017

Do you have a young writer looking for a summer camp?

Words With Wings is an intensive writing summer camp for students ages 8-14. Classes take place on the University of Montana campus and participants receive one-on-one attention by professional writers from the Missoula Writing Collaborative. Every student receives their own copy of the 2017 Words With Wings anthology (with their own writing inside!) and the opportunity to read their work at the 2017 Montana Book Festival.

Missoula Writing Collaborative Summer Camp


Each morning we’ll meet on the University of Montana campus to write, share and play with words. Each students will receive with their own Writing Kit (notebook & pencils) and the opportunity to work closely with Missoula Writing Collaborative instructors. We’ll visit the Montana Museum of Art and Culture to write ekphrastic poetry, take our notebooks outside to write around campus, and have lots of time to explore the world of words together.

Our week culminates with a reading on campus on Friday at 12PM. Each student will receive a copy of the 2017 Words With Wings anthology (with their own writing inside!) and the chance to read at the Montana Book Festival in September 2017.


Our full day sessions offer an opportunity for students to build on their morning experience. We’ll explore the Missoula community and its varied ecosystems by foot and bus. These excursions provide guided opportunities for developing writers to observe and write about the world around them. This year we’ll visit and learn about Historic Fort Missoula, the kitchens at Caffe Dolce for pasta making and gelato, the Clark Fork River with the Watershed Education Network, and more!
