Summers at Durham Academy are a time of fun, exploration, creativity, learning and adventure. Our unique summer programs offer kids an opportunity to delve deeper into activities they are already interested in or try out something completely new.

Over the years, Ive watched thousands of kids come through DA summer programs and discover new passions, create amazing works of art, meet new best friends and experience the joy of learning.For teachers, it is an exciting time as we get to spend our days on interests that we are passionate about but dont always have the time to share with kids during the school year. Teaching summer camps is a great way for us to get to know our students on a different level and learn about their interests and what gets them excited about learning.

On top of all the wonderful enrichment and athletics camps offered, we also run a variety of academic camps designed to help students who want or need to spend extra time on math and/or language arts. These camps are run by some of the best teachers in the area and redefine what it means to be in summer school!
