Summer camps


Gamecock team coaches and players instruct campers at football camps and clinics, and women’s and men’s soccer camps.


The Carolina Master Scholars Adventure Series offers academically talented students a variety of subjects to learn from top University faculty and research professors. These hands-on camps are for rising 6th through 12th graders and include Adventures in Business-Entrepreneur, Adventures in Pharmacy, Adventures in Bionanotechnology, and Adventures in Visual Arts.


Between 400 and 500 students come from across the Eastern United States to attend Carolina’s Summer Music Camp. Open to rising seventh grade through twelfth grade students, the band camp includes Drum Major, Marching Percussion, Symphonic Band, and Symphonic Percussion camps.

Now in its seventh year, the Southeastern Piano Festival gives a select group of pianists in grades 8 through 12 many performing opportunities, daily lessons with Carolina piano faculty, master classes and conversations with distinguished guest artists, and workshops. Each day ends with an evening recital by a guest artist, piano faculty member, or festival students.


Electrical Engineering Summer Camp is for rising 10th- and 11th-grade students who have a special interest in engineering. Taught by Carolina engineering faculty and staff, campers will build and race a robot that can sense heat, light, and wind.

Camp Success is for rising 6th- through 8th-grade students who want to explore careers in engineering and technology. Campers will go beyond the books and assist a local community agency with an actual problem. Working alongside University professors, students will use creativity, innovative thinking, and problem-solving skills to develop a solution and learn about a broad range of career paths along the way.
