Summer Programs

Our Summer Programs aspire to provide opportunities 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 some 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. Our programs run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm each day, Monday through Friday, with optional Extended Day care from 8:00 am through to 5:45 pm. Generally, about half of our summer instructors also teach at Carolina Friends School during the school year, but we also host a variety of experts and other educators.

The June 17 to August 9, 2024 course offerings are posted and registration is open! 

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