About

Summer Arts Camp is...

a one or two week educational visual and performing arts camp, offering instruction to beginner through advanced students ages preschool to 18 years of age.

 What Makes Us Different...

​•  Emphasis is put on the process (the skills learned) rather

    than just the result (the show or finished product), giving

    attention to the educational aspect of art 

•  Junior and Senior campers are all elective thus they are not

    placed in classes that they do not wish to participate in

•  Ratios of adult to camper are kept low for the safety and

    individual attention of campers

•  Parking is safe and convenient 

•  Camps are held in a facility dedicated to arts education   

•  Campers are exposed to many artists, giving them a broad

    perspective of the arts

•  Guidance is provided to help further campers' arts

    education after camp has ended and throughout the year

•  Camp counselors are CPR and First Aid certified

•  Every camper receives a FREE t-shirt

•  There are no art fees or other fees

•  Every family receives a FREE link to the showcase video
