Welcome to ArtsCalibre Academy's Active Arts Summer Camps!

 

Join us for a summer of creative, active fun!  Our week long camps will follow a new theme each week, engaging children in music, art, crafts, cooking...and lots of fun and games!  Camps will also feature outdoor activities every day, including field trips to local parks and beaches.

Experience our expanded facilities and outstanding teaching staff, and get a taste of ArtsCalibre Academy's extraordinary educational programs for Preschool through Grade 8…and beyond.

 

7 weekly camps will be offered for age groups 3-5, 6-9 and 10-14, from July 3rd through August 17th, 2018.  See our 2018 Summer Programs Brochure for more information on the specific themes offered each week.
