Camp registrations are now closed

916 Ink is pleased to announce that we are once again offering open enrollment for rising 4th- 6th grade students to "Amplify Your Voice" Summer Creative Writing Camps. Participants will have fun, gain confidence in expressing themselves, and improve writing and reading skills. Not to mention they will become published authors!  

Session Dates

Camp registrations are now closed!


Each morning, students will participate in two writing sessions, learning to edit and polish their work for publication and work as a team to help design their book cover with our professional graphic design team. During the afternoon sessions students will participate in kinetic activities to spark creativity and imagination for further storytelling, and will be introduced to local guest teaching artists who will work with the students on alternative storytelling methods in music, performance and fine art.
