SOLD OUTAugust 5-9 Super Scientists for For our Playhouse friends who are admirers of all things science.

SOLD OUT August 19-23 Exploring Cultures through Arts Integration Campers will “travel” the world and explore cultures through visual arts, music, theater, and dance. They will make real-world connections as they compare foreign cultures to our own through a variety of activities that promotes problem solving. Arts integration challenges kids to be creative thinkers and and takes away the limitations of identifying a single solution to a problem. 

SOLD OUT August 26-30 Portrait of an Artist Each day we will explore a well known artist or art form.  We’ll share visuals of their art and explore their medium.  Our campers will become artists, as they create their own masterpieces.  Come learn about Dale Chihuly and his amazing creations from glass, the Japanese art form of Gyotaku fish painting, and Georgia O’Keefe’s fabulous flowers.  We’ll also design our own pieces of artwork after learning about Kandinsky and his circles, as well as others who have encouraged free exploration of color.  There will be lots of opportunity for creativity during this fun filled week.
