Bowdoin College Summer Programs

Bowdoin College's Summer Programs provide an excellent opportunity for individuals and organizations to enjoy the College's facilities as well as benefit from the expertise of Bowdoin faculty and staff during the non-academic portion of the year. Bowdoin is the longstanding host to several summer programs, including the Bowdoin International Music Festival, the Maine State Music Theatre, Upward Bound and the Infrared Spectroscopy Course.

Additional programs are brought to campus each summer by Bowdoin faculty, staff, and by outside associations. These include educational seminars, professional conferences, sports clinics, youth camps, specialized workshops, and social events that reflect the College's overall mission as an educational institution and as a member of the Maine community.
