Summer Arts Camp 2017
June 12 – August 18, 2017
Bring out the artist and performer in your child with visual, performing, and interdisciplinary programs at Summer Arts Camp. Each session of camp ends with a performance or an exhibition of artwork, because children flourish when they put the skills they’ve learned into practice.
The empowering feeling of watching it all come together builds leadership skills, confidence, and critical thinking. Most importantly, children have fun and make memories that will last a lifetime.
We offer a variety of programs to suit your child’s interests and skill level:
- Young Actors and Young Artists, the popular choice for the child who loves to participate in both the visual and performing arts
- The new Littlest Actors and Littlest Artists, for children aged 4 to 6 years who want to express themselves creatively
- Broadway Actors, an intensive program for the talented performer who loves to be in the spotlight
A limited number of partial scholarships are available through our Arts Outreach Program for qualifying families.

Raves about Summer Arts Camp
The Center’s arts education programs for youth inspire the creativity in children; strengthen the family bond; and grow awareness of the arts as an essential resource in a child’s social development and academic success. Research shows that children who participate regularly in the arts improve their attention span, learn more quickly, and develop higher level critical thinking skills. They also have fun.
