Love DYWC!!! This camp draws a diverse crowd and everyone seems to find some amazing friends. Since I do not write creatively, DYWC is one of the few programs that offers journalism and nonfiction courses, a huge plus for me! I have spent two summers at DYWC and all of my teachers are incredibly energetic and passionate. The counselors here are amazing and create an incredibly warm environment. The non academic activities are vast, but HS students also have the oppourtunity to walk to 9th street in the evening, one of my favorite thigs about DYWC! I've both developed lifelong writig skills and made friends for life at this amazing place I call DYWC.
