KIDS (Grades 1 – 2)

BIG KIDS (Grades 3 – 5)

PRE-TEENS (Grades 6 – 8)

TEENS (Grades 9 – 12)

For our summer camps, children must be entering these grades in the Fall.   These are noted in the class/camp descriptions.  Our camps are tailored carefully to each age group. To maximize your child’s enjoyment and safety, please adhere to these guidelines.


Before and After Care are available from 8-9 a.m. and 4-5 p.m. at $5.00 per hour. Forms must be filled out in advance and can be found in the Camp Parent Pack. Click Here to download the pack, which contains useful information about our camp programs as well as the required information forms. Forms can be submitted online or printed and delivered to The Arts Center.  All forms must be completed before your child can attend camp.

Payment plans for 2014 Summer Camps are available. A 25% non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. The remainder must be paid in bi-weekly or monthly installments using a credit card.  Must be paid in full two weeks before camp starts.
