Get Creative at The Arts Center This Summer
Their summer camp program, designed for children and teens, provides a unique opportunity for young artists to explore their passions and develop their skills in a supportive and engaging environment. They offer a wide variety of camps to choose from, and during each program, kids will get hands-on with art, learn from experienced instructors, and create lasting memories with their peers.
The Arts Center offers one three-day camp and multiple five-day camp sessions, Monday - Friday. Each camp is taught by local artists, many of which are also art teachers. Attendees will find that skills acquisition is incorporated into each activity, so that every day is building on the previous. By the end of a week at camp, even the youngest campers will possess new artistic skills.
