We're in session all year round—school year, summer and holiday breaks!

For breaks during the school year, Writopia Lab offers Half-Day Workshops, Full-Day Camps, and Teen Writers' Retreat.

Availability of programs offered on school breaks will be contingent on the region your Lab is located. We try our best to accomodate both private school and public school schedules. If ever you do not see a program at a time you are interested, we welcome you to inquire with our regional managers to see what we can arrange.
