Our Teen Arts Academy is a two week immersive arts program providing professional direction and focus to help teens realize their inner artist. An exceptional faculty works closely with each student, stressing individual growth while encouraging achievement and cooperation. While the program is demanding we also encourage recreation and relaxation on our 178-acre property, with rustic cabins, walking trails, fresh made local food and beach trips all supported by our highly trained camp staff.

Interested in expressing yourself but not sure how? Do you love the arts? Want to pursue an arts career? Trying to take your talents to the next level?
Our Teen Academy will get you there! 

Choose Theatre, Visual Arts, Film, Writing or Music for an extraordinary experience. 

The goal of the Academy is to provide students 14–18 years old with an intensive hands-on experience in the arts in an environment that emphasizes creativity and innovation while using constructive critiques by professional artist mentors  to assist in artistic growth.  Students enroll in one discipline as their core activity with focused collaboration projects across all disciplines to create original multidisciplinary work.

Students will create their own work in a supportive studio environment, leaving the academy with a portfolio, audition piece, music demo or film, along with professional advice to help them think about the next step in their artistic development. They will also leave with a new community of friends and peers with whom they have spent hours making a new creative community!  

The Academy ends with sharing the original work of all academy students, both collaborative and individual. Parents and friends are invited to celebrate many of the finished works and works-in-progress that the academy students have created during the two weeks.
