Summer Programs


Welcome! Summer Programs

at PRINCETON DAY SCHOOL We are delighted to offer many one-week camps this year! Some of our new one-week camps include Crafting Craze, where campers will use natural materials like sticks, leaves, and rocks to create traditional crafts. This year, we will offer a Drone Camp that incorporates the science and technology behind the mechanics of drones as well as the opportunity to compete in drone racing tournaments! Also new this year are one-week Language Arts programs for grades 1–2 and grades 3–4, using the Magic Tree House book series.
