Thurber House expands Thurber Summer Writing Camp to Delaware
Second week of camp for grades 7-9 also added

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Thurber House is expanding its popular Thurber Summer Writing Camp to include a week-long day camp in Delaware for children going into the fourth, fifth and sixth grades and a second week of camp in downtown Columbus for teens going into the seventh, eighth and ninth grades.

These new weeks of camp will offer even more children and youth the chance to work with professional writers and performers and to experience the creative adventures that encompass the Thurber Summer Writing Camp, said Patricia Shannon, Thurber House Manager of Education and Outreach.

The Delaware camp, coordinated in partnership with The Arts Castle in Delaware, will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 26-30 at The Arts Castle, 190 W. Winter St. The downtown Columbus camps for seventh through ninth grades will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. June 19-23 and June 26-30 at the Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Ave. Spaces are still available for both camps.

Thurber House also offers a week-long, half-day camp for children going into the second and third grades, and week-long day camps in downtown Columbus for children and teens going into the fourth through the ninth grades. Currently, all downtown camps for second through sixth graders are full.

Registration forms for the Delaware camp are available online at www.artscastle.org and are due June 9. Information and registration forms for Thurber House’s Columbus summer camps are available by calling 614-464-1032 or by visiting www.thurberhouse.org. Registration for Columbus camps is due May 15.
