Creativity Camp 2023


Fun Camp Experience

Creativity Labs presents a fun way to kick up your creativity this summer (our 10th consecutive year!). Spend the morning learning all about the creative process in our own professional creativity studio. Then in the afternoon, apply your learning to a creative team project. Along the way, get top notch coaching and mentoring on how to turn your imagination into reality.

Who: Creatives Aged 12.5–19

writers, techies, musicians, designers, performers, visual artists, photographers, videographers, anything-elsers, the kind of people who might someday want to work at a creative agency.


  • Unlock your creative passion
  • Discover what makes you unique
  • Find your groove in the creative process
  • Collaborate with other creatives
  • Find out what blocks you and how to get back into flow

Dates: June 12–16, 2023

Come ready for a challenge. Space is limited to 16 campers.


This year’s theme is: Fan Fiction and Documentary. We will divide into two kinds of teams. Some teams will do a story based on an existing work of fiction. The other team(s) will do a documentary, telling the “making of” story of the other team’s creative process.


Monday–Thursday: 9 am to 4 pm (bring your own lunch). Friday is 9 am to 9 pm. Friday dinner is provided for students: 5–7 pm. Friday show for parents and friends: 7 pm.

“Creativity Camp helped me grow as a person, learn about what goes on during the process of creativity, and will highly benefit me during future projects.”
Rachel B

“Creativity Camp was super fun. My favorite parts were the QuickFire Challenges and the way the team worked together to finish our project by Friday.”

Happy Camper from Creativity Camp 2014

“Collaboration generates amazing energy. Entering into the creative process together brings wonder and surprise every time.”

“I’m a writer and mostly work alone. Creativity Labs feed my relational, playful sides. And each of the labs I’ve participated in has given me a tool—sometimes just a word or image—to get me past that nasty place called Stuck.”

“Working through the challenges at Creativity Labs has paid off for me as a photographer. This experience has changed the way I look through my lens. I’m seeing light, shape, line and texture in a whole new way.”

Creativity is a skill. You get better by practicing it. Together we challenge each other to be our best.
Creativity Camp is more about the process than the product. You will put tools in your toolbox that will carry you through your entire career.
If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right. Kids are naturally creative. Stay playful and see what happens.
The hallmark of the creative person is mental flexibility. This is where you learn it.
You can’t find good solutions unless you ask the right questions. Learn how to keep the conversation going and explore the possibilities.
Steve Jobs once said, “Real artists ship.” The creative life is not for pie-in-the-sky idealists, it’s for people who actually deliver.
