Infuse your child’s summer break with the arts! Camp Community Arts offers creative arts experiences and outdoor adventures for students ages 5-14.

Campers take classes in a range of mediums including visual arts (painting, drawing, clay, printmaking), fiber arts, glass, digital media, and performing arts (theater, dance, music and voice) as well as go on field trips, and have fun outdoors. Every day is fast-paced and full of activities. Your child will choose a track to focus on (Performance, Visual, or Mixed Art), while also trying a variety of other art forms. You might start your morning in a stop motion animation class, spend the afternoon swimming, or end the day with African drumming and dancing.

We offer both half-day and full-day options. All of your Camp Community Arts teachers will be working artists who will give you lots of one-on-one attention. We promise you’ll never get bored!
