Join us this summer at Camp Community Arts - starting in July!

Camp Community Arts offers creative arts experiences for students ages 5-14 years in a supportive environment that exposes children to new arts-based skills through process based learning. This summer campers will engage in a mix of arts activities as part of their morning and afternoon classes at Camp Community Arts. Campers will take classes from Community Arts' teaching artists, exploring different art skills in either a half-day camp or a full-day camp.

Camp Community Arts will offer three camps in July and August including two 2-week camps and one 1-week camp. Camp includes groups for students ages 5-7 years, 8-10 years, and 11-14 years. Campers will have the option to participate in camp for a half-day or full-day. All camps will take place at Shadelands Art Center.
