Belden Boy Writing Camp
Does your child love to write? Then here's a unique summer writing camp opportunity!
As educators, we invite you to join the three-day summer writing camp in summer of 2020 at Belden School, a one-room school house set deep in the woods of Galena. The camp is designed for serious young writers. No computers, no technology, and certainly no WiFi. Just good old-fashioned pencil and paper.
Each story, along with original illustrations created by your child, will be sent in for production and made into a memorable hard covered book! This special camp is hosted at Belden School, home of the Belden Boy Series! You may have a budding author in the making!
Move quickly and sign up, space is limited. After all, it is a one-room schoolhouse!
Belden Boy Writing Camp is hosted by Illinois Educators of Literacy and Social Studies
and the author of the Belden Boy Series, p.j. hartenaus
Winner of CSAA 2012 and 2017 Award
Eric Hoffer Finalist 2013 and National Children's Literature CLIPPA AWARD 2014-15

We are sad to announce that we will not be hosting the Belden Boy Writing Camp this July 2020 due to the COVID-19 Virus.
Given the setting of the small one-room schoolhouse that can seat 12 children, we would be unable to
observe the state regulations of a 6' distance and we take safety seriously!
Right now we are planning a spectacular 2021 Belden Boy Writing Camp next summer! Stay tuned for more information!
