The summer arts camps at NIU are a unique blend of intensity and fun. Campers with a passion for the visual arts, theatre, or jazz get the time to focus on their art – and to learn from the very best teachers. Campers enjoy six days of arts and recreational activities, sleep in newly renovated university residence halls, and eat in university dining facilities. Classes are taught on-campus by NIU faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni. Each camp ends with a gala show that is open to the public. Last year’s camps closed before the discount deadline date of June 2. Don’t wait until the last minute to register! For more information about summer camps, click on your favorite camp. Junior and senior high school students love these camps and many return year after year. Note: These are residential camps. We also offer Summer Day Camps through the Community School of the Arts for string players! See the Summer Day Camps link above.
