Family Handbook

TRAVELING ART CAMp

Family handbook

Our MISSION is to help every child discover their unique inner artist and celebrate their creativity while giving them the freedom to explore it.

Our VISION is to inspire a future generation of creative and caring individuals who have an awareness and understanding of different cultures from around the globe. 

Welcome to Traveling Art Camp, Passport to Summer Fun!

If you are joining us for one week or multiple weeks we have a fun-filled summer planned for your child.

Your young artist will explore different art and cultures from around the world to celebrate diversity and understanding. Your child will be introduced to many traditional and nontraditional art mediums and may even create their own! They will participate in age-appropriate group activities such as multi-media art projects, technology-based projects and indoor/outdoor games. Every Friday we will celebrate our young artists with a gallery showing of weekly artwork, a DJ Dance Party and pizza.

Clothes and Attire

Our camp activities are fun but sometimes messy. We use a lot of paint and make a lot of slime. Please dress in clothes you don’t mind getting messy.

Snacks will be provided daily but campers are welcome to bring additional snacks with their lunches. Water bottles should be brought daily.
