July 11 – 16 (ages 11-19), $250 (includes anthology)
There will be two camps, one for ages 11-14 and one for ages 15-19.

Immerse yourself in a community of creatives as you learn from professional authors and playwrights in a week-long series of workshops. And that’s only the beginning – world building, song writing, Dungeons & Dragons, campfire, bedtime stories, and more digital adventures await you at Circuit Tree!
A Message From Colin Matty
Dear Friends of WordsWorth,
Many happy returns and a warm Springtime greeting to you and yours! Your friendly neighborhood Camp Director here to let you know that registration for our online summer program, Circuit Tree, is now open! From July 11 – 16, we’ll come together to learn, create, share and play with some of the brightest minds in Alberta. It seems the fates have deigned that for one more summer yet we’ll gather through the power of technology rather than in person, and we’ve got some great stuff cooking.
This year we’re offering two programs, one for younger writers aged 11-14 and one for our older 15 – 19 year old writers. The best part about having them happen at the same time means we’ll have the chance for some truly epic camp-wide events. Between workshops with professional authors and artists, unlimited hangouts with radical friends, performance opportunities, story telling, games and more, Circuit Tree 2.0 promises to be an event like no other. Tell your friends and sign up quick, because space is limited!
It’s been a wild year in a lot of ways, and we’ve all got stories to tell. Join the fun at Circuit Tree this July to connect with old friends, make new ones, and see what dreams may come when people get together to make something magical. Instructors will be announced soon so check our website often, and follow us at our new Instagram account @wordsworth_wga to stay apprised of all the sweet, sweet deets headed your way. I wish you all the best for these lengthening days and blooming nights of Spring, and I’ll to see YOU this July at Circuit Tree 2.0!
Good Health and Good Spirits,
We know that these days money can be tight; for those in financial need, bursaries may be available to help cover some of the registration fee to attend Circuit Tree. Please email us at [email protected] if you would like to apply for a bursary.
