The Summer Arts Camp is a one week day camp for students in grades 3-5 that runs from 9am-2pm Monday through Thursday. Campers are able to focus in music, dance, drama, or visual art, but they will also participate in small workshops in each of the other areas as well. Campers participate in daily instruction through project based learning and will also attend daily performances/exhibitions by professionals. The camp concludes with a showcase for parents where students demonstrate some of what they learned during the week.
