Visual & Performing Arts Summer Camp
Summer Camp at Center for the Creative Arts continues its tradition of providing children an opportunity to discover their creativity in a nurturing environment that encourages self-expression. Under the guidance of professional artist educators, campers explore a variety of mediums in the visual and performing arts while developing long lasting friendships and having fun.
Our Visual and Performing Arts Camps offer an array of subjects based on artistic media such as drawing, painting, pottery, photography, dance, theater, music and more. Each week of camp ends with our Friday Fun Finale where parents and family members are invited to join us for fun activities, exhibitions and student performances. CCArts Visual and Performing Arts Camps have been developed for children from kindergarten to ninth grade. We offer half and full day camps as well as before and after care. Families may choose any combination of half or full days to accommodate their summer schedules.

(Fees are assessed for two camps.)
Supervised lunchtime between AM and PM camps is 11:30am to 12:30pm and is included for free when attending morning and afternoon sessions. Campers bring their own lunch and snacks. Campers often get a small break in the middle of each camp and should bring appropriate snacks to have at this time also.

For an additional fee, you can enroll your child in extended care options for BEFORE CARE and AFTER CARE.
Before Care 7:30 – 9:00 am $30 per week / $10 per day
After Care 3:00 – 5:30 pm $50 per week / $15 per day
There are options for drop-in, single day before or after care which can be purchased in the office any time.
Through the generous support of our local community, grants, and fundraising events such as the Fall Fest, CCArts has financial aid available to students. Summer arts campers receive full or partial scholarships.
Applications for full or partial scholarships must be returned to CCArts at least one week before the start of the desired camp to allow enough time for processing. Call the center if you have special circumstances for us to consider.
Please contact CCArts for more information and application: 302.239.2434.
Please understand that classes are based on meeting a minimum number of registrations in order to run. Full refunds will be made if a class is cancelled due to less than minimum enrollment.
A $25 fee will be charged for any cancellation or transfer of your registration from one class to another. Refunds will only be issued for withdrawals made at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the camp. The registration fee of $20 is non-refundable.
