    Among Ontario's kids camps for creative writers you'll find camps that focus on scriptwriting, film schools, camps for theatre arts and a variety of other kids' writing camps. Writing camps focus on workshops where ideas are shared and instructors and students discuss character development, plot, tone and all other aspects of short stories, drama, more. The young writer in your family will learn more about him or herself while the camp environment fosters creativity and personal development.

    Learn more about the value of a summer break at a creative writing camp!

    Camps listed first above are summer camps with creative writing as one of the focus activities but many are arts camps (both performing and visual arts) that will expose your young creative writer to the performing arts, fine arts and other art forms that will help him or her branch out in creativity, learning from other art forms.
