journey through the arts logo-2.jpg

If you are still scrambling to find just the right summer camp activities for your child this summer, ARTSPACE is the perfect space for summer creativity and fun with a wide assortment of morning and evening activities for students ages 9  and up!

ARTSPACE is not your mother’s Camping experience, so don’t expect to sing kumbayah around the campfire or to braid lanyards in the canteen.  Instead, we invite all Artie’s (kids) to move their brushes over the palette, push the colors across the canvas and to bring a character to life through animation.  It is always an ARTful journey at ARTSPACE, and this summer promises quite an adventure. Hop on board and explore a variety of camps that take you around the block of the color wheel, help you find the intersections between art and nature, peruse the POP in POP Art and so much more!

 Weekly Camp Sessions are every morning and evening:

PRICE: A week of ½ days = $150
PRICE: A Week of Full Days = $250

Sign up for ½ day or full day experiences!
