There’s never a dull moment at CREATE Arts Center camp!


CREATE offers Art Camps for children ages 6-14 during winter, spring and summer breaks, as well as more than 20 days throughout the year when school is out. All camp days begin at 9:00 am. and end at 3:00 pm. Before Care is available from 8:00-9:00 am and aftercare is available from 3:00-6:00 pm.

During a typical day or week at camp, your child will learn about and explore a variety of art methods and materials from our experienced staff of Teaching Artists, such as:

Cartooning and comic strip design
Plaster construction sculpture
Self-portrait, still life and abstract paintings
Mixed media using recycled materials
Water color resist and batik fabric art
Puppets, sewing, music and storytelling
And much more!

We take a break from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm for lunch and recess, so remember to bring a healthy lunch, refillable water bottle, and appropriate attire and shoes (no flip flops). If your child is staying for after care, please pack a snack as well. View our full list of policies here.
