Grouped by age, artists delve deep into exciting weekly themes while exploring a range of 2 & 3-D media through age-appropriate curriculum. Mornings are spent in the studios, buzzing with creative contentment through two, one hour-ish work sessions broken up by snack and story time. We lunch at noon, then head to the playground, followed by another studio block to round out the day. Every week includes a special field trip or visiting artist to enhance theme-based learning.

Extra Care has been adjusted to meet COVID safety regulations. Extra Care will be held in the same consistent studio groupings as the main portion of the day. Groups of children will not be mixed. Organized into morning and afternoon segments, extra care will be booked in advance, for the week. Campers will regularly go out to play during late care, in addition to arty-fun. Late care pick-up will be from 5:00pm-5:30pm. Camp will open regularly at 8:15am to allow teachers prep time, as they will now also be leading morning early care in their studios to keep groups consistent.

Be sure that you’ve signed up for the appropriate location and week by reviewing the confirmation details carefully. It will also include all the need-to-know camp details and an attached enrollment form.
