2016 Young Writers Camp


Last year’s Young Writers Camp was held July 11-15, 2016 and was a great success!  The camp was held in Founders Hall on Humboldt State University’s campus and provided great opportunities for students to explore their writing abilities.  Thanks to the donations from the Arcata Rotary Club and the Elks Lodge of Arcata, scholarships were offered to those in financial need.  Please keep checking back with our website to see our publication of student work during the camp, pictures of our Young Writers and link to our new YouTube channel!

Thank you to all those that participated in 2016’s Young Writers Camp and a special thank you to those teachers that organized and taught.  We appreciate all your hard work!
