Too many interesting camps to pick just 1? Then choose 2! Make your choices from drama, dance, digital photography, video production and fine arts.

Since it’s designed to be camper-driven, the number of campers in any given program may vary. Campers choose their 2 programs by the first Wednesday of the session. Every day, 4 out of the 7 periods, (90 minutes in both the morning and afternoon) will be devoted to campers’ 2 favorite specialty areas.  

Morning specialty areas:

  • Drama
    Acting skills, character development, script writing, set development, speech. Campers will conclude each session by producing a final show for parents and fellow campers.
  • Video production
    Learn basic video production, including scriptwriting, camera operation, editing and broadcast performance techniques to produce a camp video.

Afternoon specialty areas:

  • Dance
    No prior training necessary, just enthusiasm. Explore contemporary and folk moves. Dance recital for parents at session’s conclusion.
  • Fine arts
    Learn design and color concepts in a variety of media. Gallery of campers' work will be on display at session’s end.
  • Video production
