The camp takes place in 302 Howe Memorial Library (the Writing in the Disciplines' Fulwiler Room) 10-3 pm each day with the option of adding 9-10 am and 3-4 pm additional writing time.

Completed applications must include a check, payable to UVM, for $50 to be deposited (in support of future camps) only if you do not complete all four days of camp!
