Summer Arts Camp 2014
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.
