Summer at Severn Teel Camps are designed for campers entering grades 6-9 who are ready to ignite their passions and soar to new heights. Led by enthusiastic (and super cool!)

From designing graphic novels and mastering photography to throwing clay on the pottery wheel, if you dig it, we’ve got a camp for it.
