A Note from the Director
We had to cancel Writers at Harriman 2020, but we're going to give it a shot in 2021! Yes, depending on where we are with the pandemic, we may require a vaccination to attend camp. In any case, we'll follow health district guidelines to assure student safety.
This year's camp will run from August 1 through August 7. You can apply here.
Do you have questions about the camp? Don't hesitate to email us. Here's a recent introduction to the camp via Zoom.
