When: May 31-June 5, 2020

The Mississippi School of the Arts will host a summer arts camp for students entering grades 8-10 that will offer one week of intensive arts training in creative writing, dance, theatre, visual, filmmaking, and vocal music with classes by our extraordinary faculty. Students will have the opportunity to study two art forms of choice for the week, culminating with a showcase for families.

Students can get the experience of living in a residential environment or participate as a commuter for the week. Our dynamic educational environment is unlike any other. We offer students the opportunity to focus on creative expression and innovation.

Camp Registration


The Mississippi School of the Arts has hosted a summer camp for the past 8 years with great participation and wonderful students. In light of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of our community’s health, MSA regretfully must cancel our summer camp for this year. We look forward to hosting some events throughout the fall for our tenth grade students who would have had their last year with us in camp that will offer experiences with our arts teachers. Watch our website for future events! 
Refunds for any payments made will be sent either by check to the mailing address or refunded directly through our online payment system. We will begin issuing refunds as early as Thursday, April 16. All payments will be refunded no later than April 30.
We will miss our campers and our alumni who always are such a joy to lead activities. Please watch our website in early 2021 for next year’s camp.
