REGISTRATION NOW FOR 2020 Summer Spree!

Ages 4-12 | Half Day & Full Day Camp

June 22 – August 21

Summer Spree at the Community Arts Center is the perfect place for kids to have fun and be creative.  Summer Spree has been around for a long time— more than 30 years—so we know what kids, parents and teens want in a summer program. This year, campers will explore the theme Spread Your Wings! 

Campers will spread their wings and fly into a summer filled with creativity, exploration and discovery! The inspiration is endless, nature and all the amazing winged-creatures who inhabit it, our built world and all the wild ways humans travel through the air, and our own soaring dreams and imaginations!

In addition to the regularly scheduled morning activities, each session features special visiting artists and teachers who create unique collaborative projects with campers. Each afternoon we keep the fun going with ceramics, music, and games in the side yard!  Check out our blog for tons of great picture of camp!
