    Summer Programs for Teens 

    Whether it’s an overnight precollege program, a local day camp, or a sleepaway adventure experience, a summer program is a great way for teens to pursue new interests, improve existing skills, and make new friends outside of the classroom. 

    On this page, we’ve collected and curated some of the best summer programs for students in middle and high school. These one-of-a-kind programs come in all shapes and sizes — some are academically focussed, others are skills-based, and still others are similar to a traditional summer camp experience. However, all of these programs offer vital enrichment opportunities for teens to expand their horizons. 

    What Are the Benefits of a Summer Program?

    Summer programs for high school students allow teens to find opportunities to gain experience to build their resume outside of the traditional learning framework. While the benefits of a summer program will vary from opportunity to opportunity, lessons of independence and personal growth are widespread. 

    For many students, a summer program can serve as a “trial run” for adult life as well. A summer program can confirm whether or not a student is actually passionate about a certain topic. It can also reveal whether or not they’re ready to spend extended time away from the house. Summer programs are a fantastic way to explore and expand one’s interests while also offering numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth.
