Summer Art Camp Ages 5 - 12

Our Summer Art Camp is one of the best art camps around as our campers are exposed to top-notch arts education from our teachers and staff in painting, drawing, crafts, ceramics, dance, voice, theater, costume and set design and more as well as numerous sports, games and activities on our 7 acre campus. Campers also enjoy swimming once a week at the Roxborough Y as well as a weekly field trip to an area arts and culture organization. You can register your child for just one week or all 8 weeks. There is both extended morning and afternoon care available. Campers work towards our very popular final performance on our stage and an exhibition in our gallery during week 8.

Please note that last year we had to close out our registration and we expect to do so again this year.
