Big Blue Summer
New in 2020
Rutgers Community Arts
A Division of the prestigious Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers Community Arts is a brand new addition for summer 2020 and among their offerings will be premium high school and middle school dance programming along with an amazing drawing & painting camp. We’re also excited for their versatile “Kids Create!” program for young artists (rising kindergarten through 8th grade) looking to experience different mediums and activities. Welcome Rutgers Community Arts!
Our longstanding premium technology partner, Zatna, will be offering new technology camps for our budding coders, future engineers, and computer science whizzes! Along with full day advanced programming courses in Java, Python, and Robotics/TETRIX, some of the new half day PM offerings include Virtual Reality, Exploring the IOT (Internet of Things), Embroidery programming, and Art Tech: Eclectic Projects.
Visual Arts Center of NJ
After a successful 2019 as part of Big Blue Summer, the Visual Arts Center of NJ is back for a second summer, with new and improved programming for young artists in a variety of exciting disciplines including sculpture, assemblage, art journaling, illustration & character design, and drawing & painting. VACNJ is also offering themed art camps for rising 1st through 5th grade students.
Kicks and Sticks!
Do you love soccer AND lacrosse? This innovative new program for rising 3rd through 8th grade students features drills and instruction that will benefit players’ skills and knowledge in both sports. The camp is run by Pingry Physical Education Teacher, Julia Braun, who is also a professional womens lacrosse player for the Baltimore Ride!
Pingry Performing Arts Camp
After a fantastic presentation of “Finding Nemo” in 2019, Pingry Drama Teacher Alan Van Antwerp’s Pingry Performing Arts Camp is adding another week of full day musical theater camp! We look forward to what Mr. Van Antwerp and his staff of theater professionals has in store for summer 2020!
