McCarter Summer Camp

This summer, McCarter will offer students entering Grades 2 - 8 the chance to fully immerse themselves in a creative process.

As with all of McCarter’s education programs, our Summer Camps are taught by professional teaching artists who create safe learning spaces and offer opportunities for all campers to develop artistic techniques, social skills, and imaginative thinking.

McCarter Summer Camp challenges each child to find their unique voice while working collaboratively within an ensemble — all in the joyful spirit of summer! 


Online registration will close on Friday, July 16 at 6:00PM. For late registration, please email
