University School of Nashville strives to provide the most dynamic and varied summer programming options for rising grades K-12 with over 150 camps covering science & technology, sports & adventure, visual & performing arts, and fun & learning between Monday, June 3 through Friday, July 12 plus the popular outdoor Dog Days of Summer from Monday, July 22 through Friday, August 2.

Visit to preview camp offerings and return to the website Monday, January 8 to register. Expect popular camps to sell out fast; there will be waitlists available.

Each camp session lasts for one week. We offer half-day camps and a few full-day programs. Morning sessions run from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Afternoon sessions are held from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Supervised lunch is from 11:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. for campers staying for both morning and afternoon sessions. Families can send a lunch or purchase from USN’s Sperling Cafeteria. In addition, aftercare is from 4 to 5 p.m. for $50/week.

USN Summer Camps will be closed Wednesday, July 19 for Juneteenth. Because camp enrollment historically has been drastically low during the week of  Independence Day, no camps will be offered Monday, July 1 through Friday, July 5.
