Summer Arts Camp

We are very excited to welcome our students back for in-person Summer Camp!


About the Summer Camp Program:
Our Summer Arts Camp is a four-week camp designed for students in grades 1st-8th to explore the artistic disciplines of Theater, STEAM, Dance, Music, and Visual Arts. The camp provides fun and engaging classes while fostering the physical, emotional, and social wellbeing of our campers. Each week has a new and exciting theme that concludes with a final presentation and celebration with family and friends!

ART Inc has safely followed CDC/COVID protocol for the 2020-2021 school year and successfully experienced in-person learning for a small group of homeschoolers.  We look forward to continuing this as we launch our 2021 summer camp. Please take a look at our COVID PROTOCOLS.
