Global Arts Camp

 

Global Arts Camp invites campers entering Kindergarten through Second grades to expand their boundaries and experience the sights, sounds and textures of countries in the world around them. We will inspire curiosity, hone social skills and build confidence by exploring the world through photos, cooking, music, painting, special events, visitors, and trips. There's daily play with group games, cultural dances, swim lessons and more. This is primarily an indoor camp concentrating on the culture and activities enjoyed by children in the countries we are exploring.
