Note: Please do not enroll your child for a camp that requires a higher grade level than your child is entering. We try very hard to keep our camps and campers matched at the appropriate social maturity level, reading skill ability, and curriculum content. However, if your child is older and wants to take a camp listed in the next younger category, that is ok.

Projects include creating magical wands and good luck potions, sculpting clay creatures and creature houses; making goblin slime, painting, drawing, and dressing up as fantastic beasts. We will read stories, make masks, and use a variety of mixed media to create a magical world! LOTS of artsy fun, reading, and make-believe! Art Explorers guides young children in the transition from random scribbling to intentional drawing and helps them see how lines and shapes fit together to create recognizable forms.

Mini-Masters – Gr. K-1

Discover our fun and playful art camp with whimsical animals, people and nature, still life, simple landscapes, and 3-D projects. Learn about Great Artists like Matisse, Kusama, Ringgold, Picasso, Kahlo, Warholl and more. Campers gain self-confidence as they learn to draw, paint, sculpt, and collage. Create wonderful pieces of artwork while using a mixture of artist quality materials including clay, watercolor, paint, soft pastels, oil pastels, Art Stix, illustration markers, AquaStics, and more! Art Explorers guides young children in the transition from random scribbling to intentional drawing and helps them see how lines and shapes fit together to create recognizable forms.

Animals on the Wild Side Art Camp- Gr. K-2  

Expect this camp to be a roaring good time! Our outrageous art activities include whacky birds, creepy crawlers, a superhero panda, a mouse that paints, horses that fly, jungle dwellers, fiery dragons, dinosaurs, and funky art creatures that are bound to please our creative minded campers. Walk…on the wild side as we draw, paint, sew, and sculpt with clay using artist quality media throughout the week!

Engineering, Programming & Robotics

Little Maker – Gr. K-1 

This is the perfect maker camp for the 5-year-old girl or boy that loves to tinker, build, create new things, take things apart, and learn how things work. With fun DIY projects and creative construction materials such as Lego Simple Machines & Tech Machines, KEVA, K’NEX, and Cublets, your little maker will explore and tinker to their heart’s content. Add to our maker camp great stories, like Intersteller CinderellaRosie Revere, Engineer, and Iggy Peck, Architect that encourage “thinking outside the box.” Whether it is building towers or a zoo, learning about levers, gears, axles, and gravity, letting their imagination transform ideas into models, or making connections between science, engineering and technology, this camp is sure to spark curiosity and creative thinking.

Little Bot Programmer – Gr. K-1 

Yes, 5 year-olds can learn to code through fun and engaging play! We use KIBO, Dash & Dot robots, and Puzzlets to introduce beginning programming to young children. Young campers learn the basics of coding, build and program our loveable robots with light, sound, sensors, and movement. They create characters in interactive games and stories using both on-screen and non-screen activities. By snapping together graphical programming blocks, campers can add voices and sounds and make their characters move, jump, dance and sing. Non-screen time includes programming with KIBO and Puzzlets and learning how circuitry works. This camp appeals to both technically minded kids and those that connect to art and stories. Warning! Be prepared…your child will not want to leave camp at the end of each day!

Toy Inventor – Gr. K-1 

Immerse yourself in our toy inventor’s workshop as you make different projects like a kaleidoscope, pocket rocket, sponge ball slingshot, Peep boat, musical instrument, and a lava lamp to take home. Learn about engineering and design thinking as you build simple machines, bridges and structures from blocks, understand how electricity works using snap circuits, discover why kaleidoscopes produce such beautiful colors, and create your own monocular. Sir Isaac Newton never had this much fun! On the final day, show off your inventions and collaborate to build a zoo, city or park and share it at Family Open House.


Jr. Chemist–Gr. K-1

Explore the fun of Chemistry with all that is ooey, gooey and just plain slimy!  We have chosen our favorite chemistry activities from our stockpile of recipes and formulas to bring you the best of the best.
