Mercersburg Academy Young Writers Camp

Whether you are new to writing or a seasoned storyteller or poet, all of our Young Writers Camp (YWC) participants can expect an exciting range of writing activities with traditional camp experiences. Our participants have fun while also learning to think and write creatively.

Mornings at camp are dedicated to the exploration of specialty classes—such as fiction, poetry, and writing for the Internet—that are chosen by campers and taught by professional writers and teachers. Afternoons are open to thematic workshops and recreational activities that include rock climbing, swimming, and trips off-campus.

YWC culminates in the production of a digital literary magazine where new works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry are published by campers. This impressive volume is a keepsake of the unique YWC experience. All campers also have the opportunity to read their work aloud at an open mic night at a local coffee shop.
