Our camps are about exploring art and self-expression. Children dig into an array of mediums and arts in their own way. No matter the theme, we promise arts integration with movement, song, story, and art. Each week children will have the opportunity to create a custom t-shirt and a weekly journal of their experience.
*New this Year: We are starting an aftercare program to extend the hours of camp up to two hours later. Pick-up is by 4pm and costs and additional $120 each week (sibling discount available). Must sign up for this in advance, limited space.
And, as always, when you choose Art Beast, you support Waking the Village’s communities for young, homeless parents and their children at Tubman House and Audre’s Emporium of New Tomorrows. In 2016, Art Beast generated over $50,000 to sustain Tubman’s child development program for children experiencing homelessness.
