5 Best Summer Activities for Kids in Bluffton/ Hilton Head Island:
Bluffton School of Dance Summer Camps and Classes
OK, we may be a little biased, but we are SO proud of our summer line-up here at Bluffton School of Dance. This summer we are offering camps, a 4-week session of classes (ending with a showcase for friends and family!), and a special 2-week trial session JUST for new students and BSOD siblings.
This summer we are putting an extra focus on creativity and building confident young artists! During our elementary school camps, students will be playing a VERY active role. Each week our young artists will be producing a show. They will be learning choreography, helping teachers pick and cut the music, and designing costumes and decorations. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
We have summer options for kids ages 2+. Enrollment is OPEN (and filling quick!). We would love to have you join our Lime Green Dance Family!
Hilton Head Preparatory Summer Programs
Summer is the perfect time to dive a little deeper into subjects your child is passionate about. Hilton Head Preparatory is offering a wide selection of science, sports, and art camps. When we read through the options, WE wanted to sign up! These are NOT your typical summer camp options. Your child can spend a week launching their own YouTube channel or building a robot!
We know from the work we do at the studio that hands on learning is one of the BEST ways to grasp new ideas. These innovative camps are a great way to keep your child engaged this summer!

There are morning and afternoon options for kids in grades K-8th. Dedicated time to cultivating creativity is SO good for kids and spills over into everything they do!
