Camp Conroy 2020

The Pat Conroy Literary Center's third annual Camp Conroy will be held on June 15-26, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Presented in partnership with Beaufort Middle School, the program will provide campers, age 8-14, with a hands-on program of book-building from start to finish. This year's theme will focus on trees as an opportunity to tell stories of ourselves, our families, and our environment. Participants will engage in writing, illustrating, photographing, editing and storyboarding, and publishing a book.

Throughout Camp Conroy, participants will work with our expert instructors and camp counselors to create, revise, and compile their creative writing and art for publication: stories, essays, poems, artwork, and photographs. The participants will also constructively critique one another's work, a key and engaging part of the collaborative process. Camp Conroy is limited to 30 participants.

The camp will include one field trip day and several workshops with guest instructors, as well as a closing reading and display of the campers' work at the Pat Conroy Literary Center. Family and friends will be invited to a closing reception at the Center, and the campers' book will be available for pre-order.

The $299 registration for Camp Conroy includes all materials, instruction, the field trip, and daily snacks. Campers must bring their own lunch and drink each day.

A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available. To apply, students should submit a sample of their work (essay, poem, artwork, or photography) by Friday, May 8, to the Pat Conroy Literary Center, 905 Port Republic Street, Beaufort, SC 29902, Attention: Camp Conroy. Scholarship recipients will be contacted by May 29.
