On Tuesday, May 26, Usdan shared our very difficult decision to cancel in-person camp this summer. We made this decision because we knew we couldn’t provide the Usdan summer our students know and love. For the full announcement, please visit our Covid-19 updates page.

Welcome to a community of makers and dreamers. Our goal is to give each camper a way to explore an existing passion in depth while also sampling other intriguing offerings. 

In three, four,  and seven week sessions, campers can choose from classes in five arts disciplines (art, creative writing, dance, music, theater) and three other specialty areas (chess, nature, and recreational arts). Campers pick a “major” and a “minor.” Each day, they spend two class periods in their major, one period in their minor, and one period in a recreational activity.
