Creative Arts Summer Camp at Wyoming Seminary

At Wyoming Seminary, every summer brings students together from around the world to make new friends, learn, and, most of all, have fun. Our creative arts summer camp program involves several disciplines which include theater, music, dance, visual arts, and junior arts.  

We offer various sessions throughout the summer for kids looking to sharpen their skills and become greater creative performers. Our sessions are versatile as well, meaning students can board on campus for the duration of the creative arts summer camp program or just come in for the day and return home in the evening.

The goal for us at Summer at Sem is to impart new skills, methods, approaches, and experiences to the students attending our creative arts summer camper so that they may leave better off than they were when they started the program. If we can impart just one new way of approaching acting, singing, playing an instrument, or working behind the scenes, then we’ve done our jobs.

Come join us at our beautiful campus nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Northeast Pennsylvania and check out our fantastic creative arts summer camp program! We look forward to seeing you.
