Program Structure

Music, Theater, Dance, Visual Arts, Photography, Video, Creative Writing, Green Corps, Sports & Swim Our dynamic learning program is based on a five-period day with two Majors, two Minors, and a Free Choice period. Your child’s Majors and Minors will meet for 75 minutes each, Monday through Saturday, in modern air-conditioned facilities, for his or her entire session. Emphasis is placed on the creative process, hands-on learning and collaborative projects as campers work toward performances and exhibitions for their families to enjoy at the end of each session. Free Choice will allow your child to explore other areas of the arts each afternoon, take a dip in the pool, or hang-out with friends.

Sundays are a special time for campers to take a break from their normal routine to try new things, relax, and create their own schedule of varied workshops held throughout the day.

Majors

Majors are offered every summer in core program areas: Theater Performance, TechnicalTheater, Music, Recording Arts, Dance, Visual Arts, Photography, Video, Creative Writing, Green Corps, Sports & Swim.

All Majors classes culminate with performances and exhibitions. Campers choose their Majors before camp begins and choices are guaranteed, but they still have the option of changing their mind during the first few days of camp.

Minors

Minors vary every summer and reflect the unique strengths of current staff. Campers can explore an art form, learn a new instrument or study a specific area in depth without the pressure of having to prepare for a performance. Several Minors are developed within each core program area. Campers choose their Minors on the first day of camp.
