Interested in just one week? Sessions 1-4 of the Summer Fine Arts Camp for 5-12 year olds runs in two week blocks. But we are happy to welcome campers for just one week as long as there is still space available in the session you are interested in. We will begin registrations for single weeks after June 1st. If you wish, you can add the second week of the same session at a later time, space permitting, by paying the balance of the session.
