A full slate of summer camp and pre-college intensives will be held at Point Park University's Downtown campus from June 16 – July 27.

New this summer is the opportunity for high school seniors and rising seniors who attend pre-college intensives to be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship in their financial aid package if they enroll at Point Park University as an undergraduate student. Students can earn two separate scholarships if they choose to attend summer camp before their senior year and the summer after they graduate.

“Summer camps and pre-college intensives are a great way for students to explore their interests and find their passions,” said Vincent Rugani, director of Pre-College Programs. “These programs are instrumental in guiding students towards their next academic endeavor.”

Point Park's summer camps and pre-college intensive programs are offered in the categories of Arts and Sciences, Business, Cinema Arts, Communications and Dance.  Camps are staffed by Point Park University full and part-time faculty, including renowned instructors in business, creative writing, communications, cinema arts and dance, offering students a unique opportunity to learn from, and network with, professionals in their fields. For example, students interested in business have an opportunity to explore the sports business industry, entrepreneurship, accounting and community engagement with professionals actively engaged in those fields. 

Students perform at the International Summer Dance camp.

Among Point Park University’s most anticipated summer offerings is its International Summer Dance program, featuring talented dancers, teachers and musicians across the U.S. and abroad. This rigorous program of comprehensive dance study specializes in ballet, jazz and modern. Students must be accepted into the program and are eligible for scholarships. 

Pre-college intensive and summer camp programs are directed at students ages 10-18. Students participating in at least five days of camp activity have an opportunity to stay in Point Park University’s Downtown campus dorms. Extracurricular outings are planned for participating students, including trips to Kennywood, the Cultural District to attend performances, and a trip to PNC Park for a Pittsburgh Pirates game.
