SAGO (Summer Arts to Grow On) at the Center for the Creative Arts in Yorklyn, DE sparks imaginations and encourages the talents and interests of children ages 4-14 as they explore the visual and performing arts and develop friendships that last well beyond camp.  Friends and siblings return summer after summer, week after week, to draw, paint, sculpt, dance, act, and discover a variety of arts related activities featured in their choice of weekly themed camps.

Registration has begun at The Center for the Creative Arts (CCArts), Yorklyn, DE for week-long summer camps for that begin June 18, 2012. Morning camps, 9:00-11:30 AM, followed by afternoon camps, 12:30-3:00 PM, run for ten weeks, through August 24. Single morning or afternoon camp fees begin at $120 per member when registering before May 1. The more camps you take, the more you save! Age specific camps are based on campers’ 2012/2013 Grade level: Age 4 through entering Kindergarten, students entering 1st through 3rd Grades, entering 4th through 6th Grades or entering 7th through 9th Grades. Supervised before-care, after-care and lunchtimes are available for busy parents.

New for 2012, “SAGO Spirit” is a new series of multi-age camps for 2012, an option for all ages through 6th Grade.  Each morning or afternoon, campers will explore a unique set of creative experiences inspired by the week’s theme and driven by the Instructor’s interests and talents. These multi-age camps were developed in response to requests from families who would like siblings to enjoy camp together. Of course old favorites and popular new age specific camps are also offered by returning and new instructors as well.

2012 Camp Themes are inspired by the 2012 Summer Olympics, with a creative twist. Each week features a new theme with broad interpretations for CCArts’ creative community of campers, teachers and staff.  What are “ARTnastics” or “ARTyak”?.  What are they? What do they mean? Campers and instructors will decide!  Explore the possibilities at CCArts.  Think creatively! Like it says in the camp’s description, SAGO “is NOT a sports camp; SAGO is an ARTS Camp!”

ARTScetera, for Middle School aged campers, returns for a second summer.  Building on successes last year, a variety of camps are offered specifically designed to meet their creative interests; it’s like SAGO but kicked up a notch. Topics include Fine Art Drawing or Painting, Pottery on the Wheel, Digital Photography and more.

CCArts’ Teen Intern Program once again provides valuable volunteer and leadership opportunities for young people between the ages 15 and 18. Teens enjoy helping campers and instructors, earning community service hours and credit toward CCArts membership and classes. This summer, Teen Interns will participate in a photography project, capturing smiles to share with the world.

Buddy Week is every week this summer at CCArts! Rewarding returning families for their loyalty, CCArts offers the opportunity to save money by referring new campers. For each referral that is new to CCArts’ database, returning campers will receive a $20 voucher toward a class, camp or workshop.
