ice-writers-logoImaginative Creative Explorers: that’s the name the first group of campers came up with 17 years ago when TBAWP’s youth programs began.

I.C.E. is a unique-to-Tampa camp. There may be other Creative Writing camps, but our model is wholly original (no really, we’ve been to conferences! We’re one-of-a-kind.) I.C.E. is open to 8-16 year olds (rising third graders to rising juniors). It is our mission to provide camps that are fun, offer new experiences and present opportunities to build new friendships. I.C.E. Writers’ Camp was created to provide an environment in which writers feel safe to explore their abilities and receive feedback on the writing process from their peers and Tampa Bay Area Writing Project Consultants. Please note that this is not a remedial camp; rather it is fast-paced and vigorous with lessons that are in-depth and challenging.

Each session is two weeks long, Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Tuition is $400. Every camper will receive a t-shirt, a copy of the anthology, and a renewed love of writing.
