In the midst of SIP, being able to be with kids (and adults he’s not related to) was a breath of fresh air for Joel. It was a relief for him. I think we underestimate how much kids need to be around adults who are excited to see them and be with them, and who are 100% there to encourage them….Writing requires an element of being encouraged to be yourself. He so needed to be able to be praised for being himself when AIW rolled around! Camp was a very positive window in an unusual and challenging summer.Tricia Ready

COVID-19 Update (Updated 1/5/2022)

First and foremost, we hope that this message finds you and your family in good health.

How will we comply with State and County health orders to keep everyone safe?
Safety remains paramount for all programs this summer, and we are committed to following State and County guidance on this. We recognize that these orders are modified regularly, and we will adapt accordingly. To learn more about current guidelines in your state, please click to view California guidelines and Virginia guidelines.

What does AIW Camp Online look like?
AIW Camp’s Online sessions are offered as “Half-Day Plus” (9am-12pm daily, with 2 hours of additional afternoon 1-1 meetings with a teacher per two-week session ) sessions. Like our on-campus programs, campers will work with credentialed teachers and college students this year to create eBooks (elementary) and Animatic Videos (middle school). The social component of camp is VERY important to us. Campers will be grouped in “cabins” (~7 campers), and campers may sign-up to be in a cabin with their friends, allowing them to be social while still “socially distant.” The online experience is designed as a virtual summer camp, not just classes online. You can read more about Adventures in Writing Camp Online here.
