Squash & Writing Summer 2023

Squash and Writing program

The Squash & Writing program offers the same amount of squash training as any other Squash & Beyond camp, with the addition of an intensive writing workshop. Participants will enjoy eight hours of designated writing time during the week.  After the three-hour morning training session, the S & B writers will convene for ninety minutes of classroom time, focusing on a different style of writing each day.  Campers return to the courts for the two-hour afternoon training session, following by dinner and the entertaining evening activities.  Their efforts culminate in the publication of the S & B Chronicle, an online newspaper covering the events of the week.

This hands-on program will help participants strengthen their writing abilities. Classes are limited to twelve participants per class. Writers of any level are welcome.

How does it work?

The Squash and Writing program offers the same level of squash training as any other squash session during the summer at Squash and Beyond Camps. Squash and Writing combines two-a-day trainings with an intensive writing workshop. After dinner, campers will participate in fun outdoor activities through 9 PM. All Squash and Beyond writing courses require that students bring a laptop to camp.
