Welcome to ADTC

The ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camp!

We believe you have to do what you love. And we believe the world needs strong & inspired girls like you who are doing more of what they love. At an ADTC overnight dance camp, you’ll find a tight-knit, all-girl community; a place where you aren’t bombarded by confusing media images; and a unique opportunity to reconnect with your authentic “Self.” Our summer team is trained to empower girls – they just happen to be America’s greatest dance choreographers, too. And we’re inviting YOU to come make new friends and share your love of dance, adventure, sun & fun with us this summer.

2018 Dance Camp Locations 

We offer summer dance camps in locations where the pace of life is slower… where you can reduce stress, raise serotonin, boost your immune system and just breathe. Our unique dance camp locations mean that you’ll have access to all the traditional activities you’d want to enjoy at summer camp. At ADTC, we have just as much fun outside the dance studio as we do in class!

 The ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camp!

My daughter Moira had a wonderful experience at camp. She was able to dance her heart out, while still being to participate in activities that you would see in a traditional sleep away camp. The counselors were encouraging and made challenging, beautiful routines. Definitely a great camp!

Both of my kids ages 8 and 14 attended last summer to the Vermont program. I found the facilities to be a perfect setting for a camp. The girls made friends very easily because of their introductory type activities and want to go back next year for even longer! Their campers’ portal made it very easy to keep up with pictures and what activities they were doing as well as be able to send notes and care packages to them. I would highly recommend.

My daughter did ADTC in Stratton, VT. ADTC was a wonderfully diverse and empowering camp experience for my daughter! I like the mix of dance classes and afternoon outdoor activities. There is also a strong focus an girl empowering themes which we loved for our daughter. Highly recommend this camp!

Extra, Extra – Read All About Us

Dear Prospective Parent – Welcome to a friendly, spirited, inclusive community we call American Dance Training Camps (“ADTC”)! 2017 is our 15th anniversary, and just like the past 14 summers, we’ll aim to provide your daughter with a multitude of fun and enriching experiences that she’ll treasure for a lifetime. We recognize that although your daughter is the one coming to camp, this is also a big deal for you as a parent… At ADTC, we offer girls an opportunity to grow up a little, develop new social skills, get creative, make their own decisions, and best of all, “let go” and dance! We hope your daughter will leave camp with a new level of confidence, as a dancer and a person. Here are some helpful posts from our blog where we break down our Parent-Camper Handbook into smaller, more digestible bites of info so you can get to know more about us before you register…we also recommend you read our manifesto. Any questions, we’d love to chat! Call 866-383-ADTC.
