Picturebook Preschool Camps (Ages 2 – 3)
Children’s favorite books inspire art projects, music, movement, and theater games. Our youngest campers are given the opportunity to create in a nurturing and caring environment. Each session of this drop-off program includes supervised playtime on the playground, innovative art projects, and dramatic play. A consistent aide and teaching artists, join the campers throughout the week to sing songs, play instruments, and express themselves through creative movement. This professional staff combines the art forms to promote socialization, early literacy skills, and a lot of fun.
Camps run from 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM. Snack is provided.
Multi-Arts Camps (Ages 3 – 12)
Weekly themes use the arts as a platform for exploration and innovation, to grow critical thinking skills, and to discover how powerful the imaginative voice can be. Camps are led by teaching artists who are chosen for their knowledge of their art form and their great skill as teachers. We also have special guest teachers throughout the summer that bring expertise in other fields that are not typically thought of as connecting to the arts. Campers are assigned into groups by age and led throughout the session by an aide. Parents and friends are invited on Fridays for an end of camp sharing.
Camps run from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM (AM Session) and 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM (Full Day). Full day campers should pack a lunch.

Specialty and Performance Camps (Ages 5 – 17)
Older campers work with professional directors, actors, dancers, and artists to develop performance, writing, and/or artistic skills. These camps help to build confidence, collaboration, and creativity while working in a safe and encouraging environment. Performance and Teen Camps range in length (1 – 3 weeks) and many result in performances held in the Yocum Institute’s Schumo Black Box Theater. All camps are led by talented teaching artists and creative professionals who work in education and their chosen discipline.
Camp times and age ranges vary, please see brochure. Snacks and lunch is not provided.
