Dutchess Arts Camp at Poughkeepsie Day School
260 Boardman Road, Poughkeepsie

A beautiful facility including state-of-the-art James Earl Jones Theater, air-conditioned studios, plus lovely outdoor spaces – courtyards, playgrounds, and wooded walking paths. The perfect location to inspire imagination. Join us for one week, two, three, or all five!

Your child will enjoy a fun-filled summer of friends, skill building and art making! At each of our picturesque locations, campers will be instructed by professional artists who will take them on a unique creative journey!

Each week brings a new adventure! Our camp directors create wonderfully imaginative weekly themes and our professional teaching artists develop creative projects around them. Children are placed in small groups based on age, led by a teacher and an assistant in each group.

Professional teaching artists use visual, media, and performing arts to foster self-expression and creativity in all of our campers. Campers will be immersed in colors, lines, shapes, textures, fabrics, clay, and sound as they develop new ideas and learn new skills. Children showcase their accomplishments for family and friends at weekly sharings.
