GRADES 4 - 6* | COST: $175 (MEMBERS $165)

Scholarship opportunities are available.

Whether you are new to the superhero world or a lifelong fan, come join us at the Putnam to learn how to create your own superhero with the ALL NEW camp Create Your Own Superhero!

Whether you’ve never drawn before or are an experienced artist, you’ll have fun writing and illustrating your very own comic book. Discover the world of superheroes and then create your own!


Despite the abundance of summer programming options, students still return to school feeling sluggish and suffering from what teachers call the "summer slide." The Putnam helps students avoid this decline in skills with summer camps that strike a winning balance of fun, education and care.

Before- and after-care is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. only for full-day weeklong camps for an additional charge ($5 before; $5 after; or $10 per day).
