Spartan Writing Camps


Spartan Writing Camp (SWC) will return for summer 2021 to offer writers age pre-K thru 8th grade the opportunity to engage in writing with a virtual camp format. Camp will be held the weeks of June 21, June 28, July 12, July 19. Writers will engage with peers and SWC TCs to grow their writing skills while engaging in high-interest sessions. More information to come!


Since 1994, Spartan Writing Camp has invited elementary and middle school writers to explore their love of writing with countless opportunities to write about the thoughts, ideas and experiences that move them. Camp instructors, who are experienced teachers and Red Cedar Writing Project (RCWP) Teacher Consultants (TCs), help students nurture and develop the writer within using Michigan State’s campus for inspiration. Each summer campers search for stories and capture memories on visits to the Red Cedar River, Michigan State University’s beautiful gardens, the Dairy Store, museums and other places around campus
