Summer camps offer a world of adventure

Want to have some serious summer fun?

Come to Carolina. We offer some 60 camps for middle and high school students that are full of challenging activities, exciting learning opportunities, and tons of fun. Campers can choose from a variety of subjects they want to explore, from art to pharmacy, from criminology to marching band, from bionanotechnology to visual arts.

Each activity gives campers the opportunity to meet other young people and to work alongside distinguished faculty and graduate students. Campers also can select preparatory camps such as the SAT/ACT Summer Institute.

Here's a sample of Carolina's summer camps. Join us -- great learning adventures await you!


The Culinary Institute at Carolina offers two camps for rising ninth graders. In Basic Culinary Camp, campers work with a trained professional chef instructor and learn about knife skills, safety, sanitation, culinary terminology, and dining room etiquette. In Baking Culinary Camp, campers learn how to bake cookies, brownies, breakfast pastries; how to decorate cakes, make cake icing, and prepare cream and custard pies.

The Arts

Summer Drama Conservatory is a series of camps for elementary students and high school students. Taught by talented theatre faculty, campers will learn the fundamentals of acting, with a focus on character, action, physicality, and ensemble. Carolina faculty and graduate students training to become public school teachers will teach these sessions.

For the Love of Art: A Camp to Explore the Arts, a camp for kids ages 6-12, is an interdisciplinary arts-based camp hosted at the Columbia Museum of Art featuring poetry, studio art, and dance workshops, as well as tours of the museum’s exhibits. This camp is sponsored by the University of South Carolina’s Arts Institute and the South Carolina Poetry Initiative in partnership with the Columbia Museum of Art.
