CONGRATULATIONS! You made it through summer camp. Whether you joined us every day or just a few times, I am very proud of your efforts. In fact, I’m a little sad it is all over. You inspired ME!

To celebrate, I created a “badge” you can post to Facebook, Instagram, blog, or other social media sites. You can also print it to display in your bedroom or to decorate your folder at school. Simply click  the images below and save them to your computer. Choose your favorite or display both.




We have great things planned at KIDS ARE WRITERS in the coming school year, including new prompts, informative articles, competitions, and challenges. We will not post every day like we did during Summer Camp. You can expect between 1-2 posts per week. We might also have a few “mini-camps”!

You can help get the word out by telling your English and writing teachers about the site. If you have friends who are writers, consider starting a KIDS ARE WRITERS Club! You can go through the prompts together and critique one another’s work.

You don’t have to wait for new posts before you write. Review old writing prompts and choose different pictures for inspiration. Work on Summer Camp activities that you missed. I guarantee, there are many prompts to choose from!

NOW, it is time for our FINAL ACTIVITY FOR SUMMER CAMP 2014.

  1. Hi! I am Hosanna and I am 13 years old. I live in Fresno, Ca. I really enjoyed the writing camp and it certainly inspired me to write more. When I first started this writing camp I was not that enthusiastic about writing. As the camp progressed though I found that I really did enjoy writing and that it was actually fun! I think that my favorite writing prompts were day 3 ( where I wrote my first story and realized that I enjoyed writing) and day 23! I had a lot of fun and I don’t really have anything to complain about! I am excited to hear that you will continue to have weekly writing prompts! I am looking forward to doing them!
    PS. Another thing that I liked was that you could take it at your own pace! I did not find it hard at all to keep up writing assignments. Thank You Mrs. Senters for doing the writing camp and all the work you put into it. I really appreciate it! Thank you again!

    • I am so happy you learned to love writing, Hosanna! You are a strong writer and will only get better as you practice your skills. I look forward to watching you grow. Keep posting your work!

  2. Hi I am Chloe age 9 and a half. I live in Massachusetts USA. I really liked Kids are Writers Summer Camp because it got me to try doing different types of writing. Some of the prompts were hard for me but I tried to do my best. My favorite day of Summer Camp was Summer camp day 8. I liked the limericks a lot because you could write something really random and I am good at that. Also I had never written a limerick before and it was cool to try something new! I wish that there was more prompts like the limerick prompt. I am so glad my Dad told me about this Summer Camp! It was really fun!

  3. Hi, I’m Corinne, age 15, and I live in Idaho, USA. I really loved this writing camp! It got me so inspired to write new things! I have been at a writers block on the stories that I was previously writing, so I think that it was good for me to focus on something else for a while.
    Thank you so much for a spectacular time with spectacular prompts!
