Welcome to Pingry’s Big Blue Summer programs.


My name is Cindy McArthur and I am the director of the summer and auxiliary programs at the Pingry School. Our goal for Pingry Big Blue Summer is to extend Pingry’s commitment to honor and excellence beyond the school year. We offer a wide range of summer programs that give campers from Pingry and our surrounding communities a chance to experience the Pingry culture under the summer sun*. Our two campuses, in Basking Ridge and Short Hills, offer beautiful spaces for learning, training, performing, playing and exploring. Whether your interest is sports, academics, arts, or sampling a little of everything in our Big Blue Summer Day Camp, Pingry prides itself on providing an outstanding education for its community of learners and beyond.
