Looking for an adventure for this summer? Take a look at our Hollinsummer program: four camp options that combine learning and fun for high school and middle school girls at Hollins University, one of Virginia’s most beautiful campuses.

Looking for a creative and supportive community of writers? This retreat provides high school students with individualized attention and a choice of activities to develop skills in fiction, poetry, and personal narrative. Lectures, workshops, and special events with Hollins faculty and visiting authors encourage participants to hone their writing skills.

This program centers on ballet and modern as primary studio techniques. In addition, young dancers spend time in a dance composition class exploring the multiple facets of creating new work. Students take two daily dance classes (ballet and modern) and spend time each day in composition workshops learning and exploring choreographic tools to support explorations of their own expressive and movement ideas.

Developed to teach the basics of a cappella singing, this camp allows participants to explore their skills in contemporary a cappella. Campers will work together to learn about harmony, perfect various vocal techniques, and arrange their own music, as well as watch and discuss video clips.

Intermediate and advanced riders learn more about hunter/jumper riding, barn management, and the care of horses from experienced college instructors. Participants have access to the outstanding amenities used by Hollins' nationally known and award-winning riding team. Field trip may take students to off-site locations such as a local breeding farm and the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.
