Summer Writing Camps

Summer Writing Camps are a great way for tweens and teens to immerse themselves in writing, either for creative exploration, academic enrichment—or both!  (Here at District Writers’ Academy, we don’t think these two motives are so separate). 

If you have a scribbler on your hands—a child who loves to write in their notebook, creates their own stories, songs or poetry--our camps will let your young writer explore that talent in a group of like-minded students! 

Likewise, if your child is resistant to writing or struggles with it, our fun, interactive methodology—with writing games, exercises, and plenty of time dedicated to hands-on writing in a non-judgmental but instructive atmosphere—will bring them out of their shell. Our method empowers students by building their confidence and skill base! 

Our Summer 2023 Camp Offerings are live now. Please browse our list or contact us for more information. We’d love to see you in Camp District Writers’ Academy this summer! 

Write on!

former student, Maret School, Washington, D.C.

Suzanne is an incredibly gifted writing teacher. When I was younger, I struggled a lot with synthesizing my thoughts into a coherent form of writing. Suzanne exhibited tremendous patience. She worked with me for hours and tutored me consistently throughout high school as I transformed as a writer. Suzanne helped me discover my creativity and confidence, and most importantly, she taught me how to love writing. My teachers even noticed a change in my writing and confidence, and I went on to major in a writing-intensive area of studies in my undergrad. Thank you so much, Suzanne

"Suzanne convinced my kid that her creativity is worth sharing. I feel great knowing those foundational skills and confidence will benefit my daughter well into college and beyond.” 

Maile

Student, Summer Poetry Camp 2023

“Camp was very fun because I felt like, as much as the teacher was teaching us, we were all working together and sharing thoughts and feedback as a group.”

“Suzanne heavily influenced both of our children to open up and write like nobody had ever done before!  She has a gift!!”
