Kids in the Arts Summer Camp

Category: Classes & workshops, Dance, Exhibitions & visual art, Kids & family, Music and Science & nature

For ages 5-12. Dates: June 11-15, June 18-22, July 16-20, July 23-27, daily 9 AM – 4 PM at the Birdhouse, 800 N. 4th Avenue. We offer a kids camp, usually a week long, typically for ages 5-14. We tailor the lessons to multiple ages by working together in whole-group instruction or by splitting up into smaller groups to maximize learning. We spend the day together creating art through various art forms like music, improv games, visual art and dance. We meet-up at the end of the day and share our experiences in a cool down meditative share time. Our mission is to promote cooperation and the love of learning through art, craft and creativity! Through exploration of self we will find common ground in each other. Cost is $235 or $55 per day. or
