The Minnesota Writing Project provides scholarships to all youth without exception. But we still need to cover the cost of paying the amazing teachers who develop and lead our camps. Through your generosity, we are able to offer more scholarships without reducing the number of camps available.

Your gift supports educational and fun camp experiences for campers whose families need financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

The Minnesota Writing Project believes that all youth should have access to high-quality programming without financial barriers. As part of our Radical Hospitality initiative, any requests for financial assistance will be honored. To request a scholarship, please email us at, sharing the following information:

  1. Number of campers you would like to register
  2. Name of each camp you would like to enroll each camper in
  3. What you are able to pay for each camp

Camp Cancellations

If we must cancel a program due to insufficient enrollment or any other circumstance beyond our control, we will offer a full refund or transfer your registration to another camp at no cost to you. Any program not meeting the minimum enrollment by two weeks before it starts will be canceled and you will be contacted by email.
