Countdown to Camp


South Mountain YMCA

Global Arts Camp

Global Arts Camp invites campers entering Kindergarten through Second grades to expand their visual boundaries with a virtual tour of countries and continents through arts and crafts activities. This camp will inspire curiosity, hone social skills and build confidence by exploring the world through photos, books, special events, visitors, and trips. Although there is daily recreation in the form of cultural dances, group games, swim lessons, etc., this is primarily an indoor camp concentrating on the culture and activities enjoyed by the children in the countries we are “exploring”.

Campers produce high-quality crafts each session that link reading, gaming and math skills, resulting in beautiful artwork. Campers are sure to become proud of their uniqueness and that of others around them. Each camp session ends with the campers hosting an art show illustrating the culture of the country they have been exploring for the past three weeks. A different country will be explored each session: Bolivia, Sweden and Morocco. Due to curriculum, this camp is only offered in full three-week sessions.
