Application to attend free summer program now available – Summer Stars Camp for the Performing Arts

Apply for our 9-day, in-person camp
August 7-15, 2022

Summer Stars Camp for the Performing Arts provides deserving middle and high-school-aged kids a 9-day, no-cost residential summer camp intensive in the performing arts.  Our 23nd Camp takes place August 7-15, 2022 on the Northfield Mount Hermon campus in Gill, MA.

Summer Stars offers small group programs in acting, blues performance, dance, musical theater/choral singing, set design, juggling, drumming, and much more. Through our work together, campers come together as an artistic community and learn about their own ability to succeed through the performing arts.

The ideal candidate is a student who shows great interest and potential in the performing arts but who may not have the opportunities to fully explore and develop their talent due to financial need or lack of community resources. There is no audition, and experience in the performing arts is not required.

Camp is free to all campers. The Summer Stars Foundation is a 501-c3 and fully funded by donations. Camp is offered at no charge to campers, and transportation is provided by us from the Boston and New York metro areas and select other locations (including some local military bases).
