The Summer Arts and Media Camp at Columbia College Chicago is a unique full-day urban camp program for young creatives ages 6 through 12. Featuring experienced teachers and counselors, small class-sizes, guest workshops, and access to Columbia’s state-of-the-art facilities in the South Loop, the Summer Arts and Media Camp introduces campers to a wide variety of artistic disciplines to help them find their own creative path. 

New for 2018, our Summer Arts and Media Camp Intensives are week-long, non-credit options for students age 12 through 18, offering a deep-dive experience exploring genres and methods within a specific discipline. Classes in this full-day program will be hands-on, collaborative, and at a more rigorous pace in order for students to develop a deeper understanding of the topics, while also producing their own pieces throughout the week. Intensives are open to students of all experience levels - from those who are completely new to a subject area, up to and including those who are hoping to refine their already existing talents.
