Derby Summer Programs 2021
Celebrating 33 Years on the South Shore!
Derby Summer Arts opens up a world of possibilities! Guided by dedicated and professional artists, campers discover their own creative gifts and develop their talents and skills in a supportive, inclusive, and exciting environment.
For Summer 2021, students ages 8–16 register for a fixed slate of offerings ("pods") and stay together for classes. Classes are offered in drama, music, art, sports, media, STEAM, and writing. The daily schedule includes five classes, lunch, the Noontime Show, and Festival Period (free choice time). In the Juniors and Kids programs (ages 3–7), our youngest campers will also stay with their set group each day. Activities are tailored for each age group and are designed to stimulate each child’s imagination and to build confidence. Children explore their artistic talents in a supportive and engaging atmosphere, and have plenty of time to enjoy outdoor play on the beautiful Derby Academy campus!
A few beloved traditions may have to be put on hold for summer 2021, but many will still be part of the Derby Summer Arts experience!
Specialty Week Camps offer students ages 5–16 the chance to delve into a specialized area; a five day immersion into a student’s chosen field.
