Spartan Writing Camps


At Spartan Writing Camp, as well as Michigan State University, we are concerned first and foremost with the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff. April 2, Michigan State University made the decision to cancel all youth programs for summer 2020 in conjunction with canceling all in-person classes for summer semester 1 at MSU.

Our staff has worked hard to plan camps that would provide experiences both around campus and with writing in an effort to spread the joy of writing as well as build community. The majority of the camp content requires in-person meetings. Therefore, moving our camp sessions to an on-line format is not possible. However, we will be adding to our Spartan Writing Camp homepage a list of trusted and free sites for you and your child to access to continue writing at home during this time.

If you have already registered, please look out for an email communication from our Spartan Writing Camp staff regarding reimbursement. Please feel free to reach out to Spartan Writing Camp with any questions you have.
