Overnight Programs

Writopia Lab offers several overnight programs, all of which are centered around writerly pursuits. Whether we’re spending a weekend in the nation’s capital, 12 days at a traditional sleepaway camp (filled with writing-based electives!), or traveling around the world, our overnight programs all foster joy, literacy, and critical thinking.


Join Writopia Lab at our creative, fun, and productive 12-day sleepaway camp! Writers will spend their mornings in intimate writing workshops led by published authors and produced playwrights, their afternoons participating in their choice of over 20 artistic and active electives, and their evenings at campfires, scavenger hunts, readings, and more.

2024 Dates: Monday, August 12th through Friday, August 23rd, 2024
