When the school year ends, it’s time for students to put away their textbooks and get in touch with their creative side. Art camps are perfect for kids or teens who need more room to develop their talents and collaborate on projects or performances than they’re given in a traditional academic setting. If your child is a future Monet, Mozart, or Meryl Streep, they’ll love the chance to learn and express themselves at an art camp this summer.
All kinds! “Art” is a very broad term, and there are different camps for just about everything it covers. Fans of the classic definition of art will enjoy sculpture, drawing, or painting camps, while more modern artists may be drawn to camps for computer visuals, photography, or film and TV. There are drama and theater camps where young thespians can hone their craft and music camps for instrumentalists (both rock and classical) to improve their playing skills. Whatever creative element your kids want to explore, there’s a camp full of like-minded new friends waiting for them.
Art camps come in a variety of program types to suit your children’s needs and preferences. Residential art camps (coed or boys- and girls-only) offer the most immersive experience, allowing your child to stay on-site for the entire duration, but day camps still give your kids plenty of time to grow before they return home each night. Art programs aren’t just for the children, either—there are also art camps for adults interested in spending a whole weekend on their hobbies.
