Old Trail School Summer Camp registration is open!
Our program represents an exciting array of specialized summer camps for every interest. Each week, our in-person camps are designed to provide children opportunities to explore, play and learn. Weekly themes include artistic exploration, drama, outdoor discovery and adventuring, speech and debate, STEAM, sports and so much more!
Many families combine a morning camp and a different afternoon camp to fill each day with variety. Lunch, transportation, and before and after camp care are all available for the convenience of our families. OTS is flexible to meet the needs of busy families and stimulating to meet the needs of curious children ready to dive deeper into their passions.
At the nation's only independent school located in a national park, OTS campers have daily access to abundant resources and unparalleled experiences led by our expert staff. Join us for a summer your child will never forget!
