Camp NaNoWriMo YWP


For the fourth straight year, we're excited to present Camp NaNoWriMo! In the months of April and July 2013, participants bunk up at our idyllic online writers retreat.

We invite the Young Writers Program to take part in the fun. There are three different trailheads for this noveling hike:


Campers 13 and Over

You may sign up at Just like on the YWP, we have flexible word-count goals! Write 10,000 words, 999,999 words, or anything in between. Please follow the directions there to complete your profile and choose your cabin mates.


Campers Under 13

We run an ultra-fun, low-pressure Camp NaNoWriMo YWP in our forums. You can choose your own goal and deadline, exchange tips with fellow novelists, and even track your word count with a simple widget.



You can bring NaNoWriMo to your class, library, or camp in the following ways:

  • Facilitate a stripped-down online version of Camp. Aid your students in signing up for the NaNoWriMo YWP site and coordinate them through your Virtual Classroom. (Please note that the site’s word-counting capabilities are available only in November.)
  • If your students are 13 or over, assist them in signing up for and becoming cabin mates with others in your group.


Any questions about Camp NaNoWriMo? Please send us a smoke signal via the contact form.
