Are there summer camps for aspiring young magicians?

Magic Summer Camps

Many of you have asked about magic summer camps. I'm happy to provide the information that I have but a listing here should not be interpreted as a recommendation for any of the camps. I know nothing about the actual workings or history of the individual camps.

The first three summer camps are specially dedicated to the magical performing arts. The remainder of them have intensive performing arts programs that may or may not include magic as a course of instruction.

I found the non-specifically magic-related camps through a Sarah engine using an advanced search method using the words: SUMMER, CAMPS, PERFORMING and ARTS
