About I.C.E. Writers’ Camp:
I.C.E. Writers’ Camps are for advanced writers who want to spend two weeks of their summer using their imaginations and creativity to explore new experiences in writing. It is a quick-paced, vigorous writing camp from 9am - 3pm daily, filled with lots of laughter and time for building friendships. I.C.E. prides itself on challenging young writers whilst ensuring their camps don’t function like a normal school day. Many campers return year-after-year and have built friendships that have lasted a lifetime. I.C.E. is a Tampa Bay Area Writing Project camp that Shorecrest Preparatory hosts. All writers who are rising 3rd graders to rising seniors may apply. Please visit the website for more information about the day, the campers and the application process. Campers must also apply and register through USF-Tampa via the website:
