Camp CREATE was developed by two art teachers to provide arts enrichment and learning activities for children ages 4-12. Our unique camp is full of playful experimentation of art processes and materials. We encourage individual expression and imginative exploration of each child’s artistic ideas. Please join us for a fun-filled summer!
Summer Camp enrollment is first come, first served. Each session is limited to a small number of campers to maximize individual attention and provide the highest quality arts experience. You may sign up for as many sessions as you like as long as space is available.
