Global Arts Camp

View our health and safety measures playbook for day camp.

Welcome to Camp

We explore the sights, sounds and textures of countries all around the globe. Curiosity, social skills and building confidence are developed as we examine the world through cooking, music, painting, special events, visitors, and field trips. This indoor camp sparkles with cultural dances and games that children from other countries enjoy.

Campers recognize their own uniqueness and gain perspective on other cultures. We link reading and math skills by creating beautiful, high quality artwork.  Each session culminates with a vibrant art show highlighting the country we explore. Summer 2020 we examine: Peru, Greece and Ethiopia.
