Venturing beyond reading and writing, Page 15’s popular Young Writers Summer Camps gives authors in 2nd – 12th grades the opportunity to write, illustrate, and publish their very own book with help from published authors, editors and illustrators.  The Young Writers Camp is perfect for readers and writers of all abilities – from the budding young wordsmiths who love the process, to the reluctant writer who hasn’t yet found the know-how or interest in writing.

Spanning over the course of the summer, each one-week long camp encourages writers to explore their creative voices and write their very own stories. Throughout the week students experience a one-on-one art consultation with a professional illustrator and attend a reading and book signing with a local author. On the last day of every camp, students are given their own time on stage to read their story to a crowd composed of friends and family.

“I have never seen my daughter so excited to participate in a program. I have taken her to art classes, gymnastics, after-school clubs, etc. But Page 15’s summer camp is by far her favorite. She yelled at me for picking her up 5 minutes early!”

Young Writers Camp Parent

“Page 15 has been the highlight of our daughter’s summer for the past two years. While she is here, her creativity is nurtured and she is encouraged in her love of reading and writing. She is also given specific tools to use to
help her in the creative process.”

Young Writers Camp Parent

“When my child got in the car after the first day of camp, he begged me to register him for the second week of camp this summer and next summer! And this was after being reluctantly dropped off that morning.”

They all have stories to tell.

At Page 15, we believe every child should have the opportunity to share their voice, and tell their story.

With your help, we can provide summer camp scholarships for up to 75 Orlando kids.
