Hogwarts Express | Ages: 8-10

July 18, 2022 @ EST 1:00 pm - July 22, 2022 @ EST 4:00 pm


Immerse yourself in Harry Potter’s world! This workshop is for young wizards and witches who haven’t yet read the full series. With dramatic read-alouds, creative projects, and visits from special professors, students will dig into the first four books of the series in a supportive environment. We’ll study the history of magic and Hogwarts; learn about other wizarding schools; study magical creatures; experiment with charms and transfiguration; and so much more. Seasoned Hogwarts faculty member “Professor Dalton” will lead your lessons, along with guest professors who are experts in various magic disciplines.

NOTE: This camp may NOT be taken in conjunction with Hogwarts Academy; it is only for young witches and wizards who have not read the full series. Absolutely no spoilers beyond book 4 will be allowed. (However students should be prepared to discuss any and all material from books 1-4).

NOTE: Writers & Books neither condones nor agrees with J.K. Rowling’s transphobic, social, and political views. Our faculty, staff, and students choose to celebrate the magic of the Harry Potter series and claim the stories as our own through critical and creative exploration of the text. Trans Lives Matter.
