Summer Programs

Children gather in outdoor tents

Our Summer Programs aspire to provide programs that spark intellectual curiosity, encourage playful exploration, and help build character. At heart, this is a place of joy!

Located on Carolina Friends School's wooded, 126-acre main campus, each summer we offer more than 150 classes for ages 4 to 18 in areas including digital, literary, performing, and visual arts; culinary creations; leadership and personal growth; explorations of math and science; outdoor adventures; and sports fun. Most of our summer teachers also teach at Carolina Friends School during the school year, but we also host a variety of experts and other educators.

In 2020, we made the decision to protect the health of the community by taking our Summer Programs virtual. We are currently crafting a schedule of on-campus camps for Summer of 2021. We are also offering personalized camp experiences by week for groups of 6-10 campers!

Registration typically opens in January and continues until courses are filled. 

We know you have choices. Thanks for considering us and let us know how we can help!
