The Chatham Music and Arts Day Camp was founded in 1956 by Mihail (Mischa) and Kathryn Stolarevsky.
Kay and Mischa have inspired many young students to embrace the arts through their dedication and teaching at the Chatham Music and Arts Day Camp. The camp, which will celebrate its 55th anniversary this summer, continues to grow its arts, music and theater program while branching out to include programs that allow campers to explore nature and engage in creative play. Kay Stolarevsky continues to support the vision of the camp by helping us offer a limited number of need-based scholarships to students who wish to attend the camp and may not have the means to do so.
