Welcome to ArtsCalibre Academy's Active Arts Summer Camps!

Lots of *NEW* activities are planned for our 2021 Camps!

These 4- and 5-day camps will follow a new theme each week, engaging children in music, art and crafts...and lots of fun and games!  Camps will also feature outdoor activities every day including field trips to local parks.

7 weekly camps will be offered for age groups 3 to 5 and 6 to 9 from June 28th through August 13th, 2021.
