Tilton School Announces Partnership with Maine Arts Camp

Tilton to Host Campers from Around the Northeast in July and August

Head of School Derek Krein announced today that Tilton School will host Maine Arts Camp for its 2024 summer sessions, bringing a vibrant residential arts community to campus during the summer months. Founded in 2004 and celebrating its 20th year, Maine Arts Camp draws campers from around the Northeast region with top-notch instruction in the visual arts, theatre, dance, filmmaking, music, and much more.

“We are thrilled to welcome Maine Arts Camp to our campus,” says Head of School Derek Krein. “This is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our ties within the arts community and leverage the incredible facilities and location of Tilton School. Their focus on small sessions and individualized instruction perfectly matches our guiding philosophies and we look forward to hosting their staff and campers in July and August.”

With sessions running from July 7 through August 3, campers will utilize Tilton’s modern instructional and experiential spaces in the Charles E. Tilton Mansion, the Helene Grant Daly Creative Arts Center, Hamilton Hall, the Alumni Amphitheatre, the Back 40, and more. Maine Arts Camp has hosted its camp at the White Mountain School for the past two summers.

This partnership furthers Tilton’s commitment to advancing its arts programming and community connections, building off of the success of the Remy Steevensz Artist-in-Residence Program, as well as joint programming with Interlakes Theatre and the Avaloch Farm Music Institute. The school’s arts and instructional spaces have also undergone significant transformation in recent years with the construction of the Alumni Amphitheatre and continued restoration and renovations in the Charles E. Tilton Mansion, including a new gallery space.
