Arts Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Arts Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Arts summer camps have grown far beyond just lanyards and camp plays - today, campers are exposed to a professional level of instruction in the creative, performing, and media arts. Whether it's singing on stage or sculpting on the pottery wheel, arts summer camps are a great way for kids and teens to make friends, strengthen their skills, and learn to harness their creative talents.

There are many different types of arts camps that can be divided between performing and creative arts. Performing arts summer camps include dance camps, theatre camps, film and television camps, and circus camps. Creative arts summer camps include fashion design camps, fine arts camps, and photography camps. Best of all, almost all arts camps can accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced artists and performers. Campers leave summer arts camps with increased self confidence, artistic abilities, and a ton of new friends who share their love and enthusiasm for the arts!

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Arts Summer Camps

Overnight arts summer camps typically welcome campers between the ages of 7 and 18. Campers typically live and go to activities with campers of comparable age and ability.

Most sleep-away arts camps offer 1 week, 2 week, 4 week, and 7 week sessions. The cost of arts summer camps vary considerably by location, facilities, instructors, and affiliations. Weekly tuition rates can range anywhere from $350 to $1,350 per week.

Choosing the Best Arts Summer Camp

There are many subtle differences that distinguish each arts camp program. Do campers focus on one core project, or try a variety of different activities? Are campers instructed by professionals, teachers, or art students? What type of studios or facilities will the campers be working in? To help answer these questions and match your family with the appropriate program, call a Choice Camps Arts Summer Camp Placement Expert at 617-264-0939. We'll help you find the perfect performing or creative arts camp for your boy, girl, or teen!
