If a child in your household is currently registered for Summer Spree, you received an email with specific information and options regarding refunds, credits, and transfers. If you have questions or concerns at anytime, please feel free to contact our Office Manager, Italina Shea via email at ishea@communityartscenter.org.

Summer Spree at Home for campers ages 5 – 12

For the younger campers, we are offering unique art kits to be used at home. There will be two types of kits:

The Ultimate Summer Spree at Home Supplies Kit!  This kit will include supplies that your child will use throughout the summer on multiple projects, a Summer Spree at Home T-shirt, and a DIY tie-dye kit. Anyone participating in Summer Spree at Home is encouraged to purchase this kit for their basic supplies.

Weekly Exploration Kit!  Each week there will be a different themed Exploration Kit. This kit will include instructions and supplies for two main projects as well as other fun extras for the week. These will be offered in slightly different versions for two different age groups, 5-8 and 9-12. Some projects will have accompanying instructional videos posted on our YouTube channel. You may purchase kits for as many weeks as you choose. A new kit will be released each session for sessions 3-8.

All kits will be picked up curbside at the CAC on the Friday prior to each session.
