Campers write much more than letters home to Mom and Dad in these creative workshops! Writopia has 11 lab locations where authors and playwrights help budding writers ages 6 to 18 develop pieces—humor, sci-fi, poetry or otherwise. Each day, young wordsmiths break into small groups to work on their original pieces, then delve into electives such as songwriting, improv or filmmaking in the afternoons (ages 9 to 16). Kids who dream of seeing their work performed onstage will relish the Playwriting and Performance session, in which a produced playwright guides them through writing intensives and fine-tunes the theatrical aspects of their play. An Off Broadway field trip and a final performance round off the week (ages 9 to 16). Ages 6–16.
