Art Beast camps are designed for children 4 to 7 years old. We create a space that honors children by offering activities and environments suited to their age range. No trying to keep up with the 10 year olds at this camp!  Each session fills at 16 children and is led by two teachers, promising a group that can grow close. The camps offer a blend of structured arts exploration in the classroom and free play within the building, always under close supervision by the camp teachers.

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. After or before camp each day, you can stay and play at Art Beast with your child as long as you’d like.

And, as always, when you choose Art Beast, your money supports 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.

what's Bell Street?

This site allows us to greatly expand our outside play offerings- a long time dream. It also allows the children attending the camp more space to explore so that a full day can offer plenty of room.

Session Times: 9 am to 5 pm. The camp day will offer both directed activities and free play.

Pricing: $250 a week. Additional siblings enrolled the same week receive a 15% discount.  $75 non-refundable deposit to reserve a space.
