High school students gather on campus for four weeks to create and connect. They’ll leave with a diverse portfolio of work showing their growth and experience, as well as new friends and memories to last a lifetime. It’s a summer camp like no other, and we hope you’ll be a part of it!

Putney Summer Arts offers unique summer workshops for teens, welcoming a diverse community of students to live and create on our beautiful hillside campus in southern Vermont.

Since 1987, The Putney School Summer Arts has provided students with the space, time, and opportunity to focus on furthering their artistic practice and learning. Summer Arts is a community of young artists, arts educators, and professionals who believe teens can be their truest selves through the making of art in an environment where learning collaboratively and taking risks is celebrated.
