2018 Summer Camp Dates: Changes to MADD Camp Dates

As Camp Magruder prepares to announce the 2018 summer schedule we want to share a few changes to our Music Arts Dance & Drama (MADD) camp that we hope will help the camp grow and bring even more high schoolers into its special community and incredible incorporation of artistic expression. Last year, due to a wet and icy winter, MADD was moved to the July summer camp week, and this year it is moving back to the traditional June week.

Also, in 2018 MADD camp will be held June 17-22 which changes it from a Sunday-Saturday camp to a Sunday-Friday camp, matching the rest of Magruder’s children/youth camps that week. This change will drop the cost of MADD by $90 which we hope will include more high schoolers who may have declined camp in the past for financial reasons. It will also make coordinating travel and rides to pick campers up more convenient for parents with children in multiple age groups.

What will most definitely stay the same is MADD camp’s ability to create a meaningful community of young people who accept and care about each other. It will continue to bring in talented artists who share their gifts to make something beautiful and wonderfully fun to be part of. Campers will still make memories that will stay with them the rest of their lives and friendships in just one week that remain for decades.


We hope these new dates make MADD camp more accessible for campers to feel its impact which has touched thousands over the years. If you know someone who is passionate or even interested in the Arts and who might want a powerful life-changing experience, tell them about the special week that is Magruder MADD Camp.  

Keep a look out at gocamping.org. Summer camp dates will be posted and registration will be open soon.
