Teens

  
Teens are social creatures. And with over 500 camps and programs in our extensive Summer 365 portfolio, you’re sure to find just the right environment to keep them fully connected to the real world. They’ll laugh. They’ll learn. They’ll grow. And, who knows, they might even thank you. Status update: Best. Summer. Ever.

 

Teen Sleepaway Camps

Teenagers are always looking for more independence. A sleepaway camp will help them find it. From sunup to sundown and back again, these overnight camps seamlessly combine great fun with greater responsibility. Spending time away from home—in their own tight-knit community—encourages both self-reliance and teamwork. They’ll make new friends, form lasting bonds, and feel empowered. It’s an experience they’ll look forward to year after year.

 
Teen camps are ideal for kids that are new to the summer-away experience. Whether they’re first timers or just changing camps, they’ll be immediately welcomed into a safe, supportive environment that truly connects with teenagers. It’s friendly, social, and “so me!”

Creative + Performing Arts

Is there a budding star in your family? A camp that specializes in the creative and performing arts can help develop that natural ability and set the stage for a lifetime of pride and fulfillment. Whether your teen has a passion for dance, theater, film, music, or comedy, Summer 365 will help find a place for them to shine.

 
For those artists whose talents are more behind the scenes, there’s a camp to let their imaginations run wild. Drawing, painting, sculpting, woodworking, weaving, silkscreening, or photography—which discipline will spark your kid’s creativity? With the right instruction plus an atmosphere that fosters sharing and development, they’ll learn to express themselves in ways they’ve never imagined.

Gap Year Programs

The summer between high-school graduation and the first day of college may seem like a minimal amount of time—but it can be monumental in personal, academic, or professional growth. A great character- and resume-builder, gap-year experiences may include traveling abroad, language studies, local community service, global charity works, eco preservation, business internships, and more. Not sure where to go or what to do? Let Summer 365 help fill the gap with options that will inspire, motivate, and reward.

Language + Cultural Immersion

Whether your teen is new to a second language or nearly fluent, Summer 365 will make sure nothing gets lost in translation. The process in selecting a 100% language-focused program is facil, facile, facilmente—in other words, easy. After all, the road to becoming bilingual can take you close to home or across the ocean. Those traveling to Europe and beyond to learn French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, or Japanese will be fully immersed in the culture. More than language lessons, these are life lessons that can have an amazingly profound impact on young lives. Give the gift of language. They’ll unwrap a world of possibilities.

Special Needs

Fun is for everyone. In addition to the traditional summer-camp activities we all know and love, a child with special needs can get the extra care and attention necessary to help develop social skills and build self-confidence. Many of these specialized camps offer academic tutoring, speech and language therapy, personal/interpersonal development, and vocational training—along with horseback riding, recreational sports, aquatics, visual/performing arts, and more. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Life has its challenges, but finding the right camp to suit your child’s social and emotional needs isn’t one of them. Give us a call, we understand. And we’re ready to help.

Specialty Camps

 The main purpose of a specialty camp is to hone in on a particular activity, interest, or skill. In the athletic arena, it could be a program dedicated to football, basketball, tennis, golf, soccer, baseball, or lacrosse. If you can think of a sport, we probably know of a camp.

 
From cooking to computers, acting to art, hiking to horseback riding, a specialty camp is a great way to develop your child’s interests. Whether it’s conducting the woodwind section at music camp or conquering the woods at an outdoor adventure camp—Summer 365 knows no limits. And when it comes to achievement, neither should your child.

Sports Camps

How to steal second, run a fast break, ace your first serve—if you’re looking for that competitive advantage in your future pro, you’ve come to the right place. In addition to developing individual skills, sport camps are instrumental in promoting good sportsmanship, teamwork, and self-discipline. Football. Basketball. Baseball. Softball. Soccer. Tennis. Golf. Lacrosse. Whatever their sport, let Summer 365 help take their game to the next level.

Teen Travel

Do you have a teen who wants to travel, to learn, to meet new people, to try new things and to explore? Choose from trips in the US to fantastic places abroad that foster your teens independence with the structure parents expect. With new friendships, new memories and new life skills on which to build, a teen tour is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Wilderness + Outdoor Adventure

What is your teen wild about? Trekking up glaciers? Paddling down rapids. Exploring caves? Mountain-biking through canyons? Sleeping under the stars? When adventure calls, Summer 365 answers. An expedition into the wilderness leaves all the smart phones, laptops, and MP3 players behind. Instead, these summer programs tap into what’s real. In nature, they’ll find themselves. The things they’ll “like” and the friends they’ll make have nothing to do with social media. From survival training and ropes courses to fly fishing and whale watching, give your kids a real timeout this summer.
