Middle School students are given the opportunity to explore many of the mediums The Arts Center has to offer!

Pre-Teens can find quality and engaging arts experiences here at The Arts Center. Our classes and camps are taught by passionate professionals, either NYS Certified Art Teachers or Teaching Artists well seasoned in their medium of expertise. Our classes and camps are small by choice so that your budding artist can get the attention they deserve.

Pre-Teen Camps and Classes at The Arts Center are recommended for middle school age children (Grades 6-8) unless otherwise specified. For our summer camps your child should be entering middle school in the fall. Our camps are tailored carefully for each age group. Many of the camps are held in artist-grade studios with professional equipment, so age appropriate fine motor skills are often important. To maximize your child’s enjoyment and safety, please adhere to these guidelines.

Scholarships are available!

We have very generous funders who want to insure that every child who wants to attend a camp at The Arts Center can. Needs-based scholarships are available for all of our camps, and all requests are given attention. Click HERE to download the application form.

Camp before and After Care are available from 8-9 AM and 4-5 PM at $5.00 per hour, per child for all of our break and summer camps. Forms must be filled out in advance and can be found in the Camp Parent Pack. Click HERE to download the summer camp 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 2016 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. Contact the Registrar at (518) 273-0552 x 231 to register for camps on the payment plan.
