Our favorite way to get our campers ready for the day is blasting music in the drop-off line. You’ll see dozens of smiling faces and eager helpers — we want to make sure your little one feels as comfortable and safe as possible. Welcome to the Chipmunks Cabin!
Durham Academy Summer
Durham Academy has provided premier summer camp experiences for Triangle families since 1982. We utilize our 84 acres of campus and state-of-the-art facilities with the goal of providing a summer experience for all ages that grows minds and fosters character.
For 2021, we hope you'll join us for something new to Durham Academy Summer — a transformative all-day camp experience that keeps campers close to home but feeling far away as they gain independence and confidence.
At the core of DA Summer is our goal of equipping our campers with the tools to lead moral, happy and productive lives. We know that a high-level summer experience can truly make an impact on your camper's love of learning and character.
Ages 11 and Under
Ages 12 and Up
DA Summer Blog
After such an unpredictable academic year, and with some parents concerned about learning gaps or loss, we are committed to providing focused learning opportunities and reinforcing foundational academic skills this summer.
Classrooms on our beautiful Upper School campus will transform into experiential learning labs in the Summer Institute — our all-day, deep-dive option for older campers who are interested in intellectual adventures.
DA’s first under-the-stars camp for kids with evening programs for fine and performing arts, athletics and astronomy. And dinner is part of the menu of activities that make this program so appealing, too!
