    The Upper Chesapeake Summer Center for the Arts (UCSCA) is an eight-day residential program held at historic Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. UCSCA provides comprehensive curricula that go beyond the traditional academic program in two-/three-dimensional visual arts, dance, digital arts, theatre, instrumental music, vocal music, and literary arts. Unique components include an intense performance program, guest artists, interdisciplinary projects, enrichment experiences, and a diverse residential life program.

    Nestled within the historic countryside of Kent County, Washington College offers an aesthetically pleasing and enriched environment. State-of-the-art facilities for the Center include Larrabee Arts Center, Lifetime Fitness Dance Studio, the Norman James Theater, Literary House, Tawes Fine Arts Center, and Student Center at Hodson Hall. New and renovated dormitories provide comfortable and spacious residential facilities for 165 participants and staff. A spectrum of "all-you-can-eat" culinary treats awaits participants at the Main Dining Room at Hodson Hall.
