2018 VCAF Summer Arts Camp

    In conjunction with the Visions of the Wild festival: Wild & Scenic, the 2018 Summer Arts Camp theme is Discovering Unexpected Beauty.

    Children will be experiencing the “Wild World of Wonderful Bugs” exploring the beauty and benefits of bugs in our environment.

    Incredible edible “BUGelicious” delights
    We will be bringing the Insect Discovery Lab to camp with Norm Gerstenz
    On Friday the 13th we will be having a field trip
    Friday July 20th will be the final day of camp and our Art Exhibition & Stage Play
    Art work will then go to City Hall for an Art Exhibition and reception.

    Open to kids ages 7 – 14.

    Tuition $375 includes all materials, field trips, Camp T-shirt and snacks. Children bring their own lunch (due mostly to allergies and personal taste). Transportation will be provided for field trips. Children must be able to attend the entire two weeks of camp classes. Art such as clay and mosaic require multiple days to construct.

    Children will be dropped off at base camp for the classes and sign in and out each day. No curbside drop offs or pick-ups. Children must arrive in time for 9AM class; start time (between 8:30 & 8:45). Cell phones will be collected each morning and returned at the end of the day. Parents will have direct contact numbers for the camp counselors if they need to contact their children. We will have a camp counselor and an assistant as well as volunteers to help with the camp. Maximum 32 kids can attend the camp. Only one financial aid package per family.

    July 9 – 13, Monday – Friday, 8:30AM to 4PM
