These camps are available to students entering grades 1 - 8. All camps are held in Bessey Hall, 434 Farm Lane, East Lansing, MI, 48824.

Elementary and middle school students, regardless of their level of writing proficiency, are welcome to explore the joy of writing at the Spartan Writing Camp. There are countless opportunities to write about the thoughts, ideas, and experiences that move them, while visiting MSU's beautiful campus. Camp instructors, who are experienced teachers and Red Cedar Writing Teacher Consultants, help students nurture and develop the writer within using Michigan State's campus for inspiration. Each summer campers search for stories and capture memories on visits to the Red Cedar River, MSU's beautiful gardens, the Dairy Store, museums and other places around campus.

Each camper will receive a t-shirt, treat from the MSU Dairy Store, and additional materials that are camp specific. Campers will take home a folder of the writing they accomplished during the camp as well as some additional ideas for writing during the remainder of the summer.
