Fighting Words Summer Camps 2021
Schedule and Information for Parents
We are delighted to announce the schedule of FREE summer camps at Fighting Words for 2021!
Camps this year will be offered to two age groups: 11-13 years and 14-17 years. All camps run from Monday to Thursday, 10am to 3pm and are completely free of charge. Our camps are highly participatory and a lot of fun. Come explore your creativity with us this summer!
Camps in July will be online. Camps in August will be in-person at the Fighting Words centre in Dublin. For full details click here
Summer camps will be run in line with relevant Irish Government COVID-19 restrictions, which may require that they are run online. This page will be updated as information becomes available.
Fighting Words runs three- and four-day summer camps throughout July and August annually. The camps cover creative writing in all its forms, from comic books to songwriting, from filmmaking to short fiction. All camps are run by experienced professionals in their given field and supported by trained Fighting Words volunteers. As with all Fighting Words programmes, our summer camps are free of charge.
Camps are aimed at one of three age groups: 8-10 years, 11-13 years and 14-17 years. Due to the popularity of our camps and to ensure fairness, participants are limited to one camp only, we are very strict with regard to age ranges and places are allocated by lottery.
Our camps are highly participatory and a lot of fun. Come explore your creativity with us at our centre in Dublin!
