QUICK TAKE: The Duke University Talent Identification Program

is world renowned for its camps for very bright kids.

This reputation is well deserved. Its writing camp is one of

the strongest in the United States. Your student will have the

opportunity to improve writing skills, explore types of writing,

and meet kids from around the nation. This is definitely

a camp for kids who are above average academically.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 12–17

FEES: Day program, $675. Boarding program, $1,395–$1,425.

Three sessions over the summer, each of which lasts for 11

to 12 days.

BACKGROUND: The Young Writer’s Camp was founded in 1983

at Duke University to give advanced young adults the opportunity

to improve their writing skills. The focus is on journalism

and communications.

DESCRIPTION: The program allows students to explore writing

for different media, such as the theater, newspapers, and

reviews. Students have the freedom to be creative and are

encouraged to push their writing skills. Students live at Duke

University and work with other students in the diverse community.

The counselors are helpful and supportive of your

student’s development. When your child isn’t writing, there

are many evening and weekend recreational activities, such

as arts and crafts and talent shows.

OUR TAKE: This is a great opportunity for any kid who aspires

to become a writer or journalist. The Duke University TIPS

Program has made a science out of creating and implementing

meaningful, engrossing, educational, and inspiring programs

that emphasize the “full experience,” and this program has

accomplished what it set out to do.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: The camp is for kids with strong,

above-average grades. If your child fits the bill, this will be

an amazing experience.
