Each child will receive a Thomas Andrew Art Art Camp t-shirt as well as a portfolio bag to store artwork.

 

​Each camp lasts one week, Monday through Friday, and the kids will learn about a different "famous" artist each day. They will then create a project, each day, based on the artist. Camp is limited to 8 kids per session, ages 8 - 11.

 

The camp starts promptly at 9 am and ends at noon. During camp, the kids will receive snacks and water, and there is a 30-minute art show on the last day (Friday) of your child's camp for the parents to view their child's art projects.

 

Lastly, you may cancel your child's camp order up to 48 hours after the order is placed to receive a full refund. After 48 hours, camp orders may not be canceled, but they may be transferred to another week if space is available. If space is not available, you will receive a store credit at Thomas Andrew Art that is valid for 1 year.

WELCOME Is your child ready to trade stories, share a favorite book, or sing camp songs with a new friend? Do they like to be greeted with smiles and high-fives from staff and fellow campers for accomplishing something new? Does your child wish to fit in just for being who they are? At Y Summer Day Camp, we are here to make your kids feel welcome and to help them quickly realize this is a place where they belong and can be themselves – try new things – learn new skills – make new friends – and be a part of something great! A camp experience can be a powerful tool for personal growth. Knowing this, we strive to offer the highest quality camps with the most diverse opportunities. Great care goes into creating a fun and safe environment. We work hard to hire staff of the highest integrity and personal and spiritual maturity, and are enthusiastic about camp. All staff are thoroughly screened and background checked and receive training in first aid, CPR, safety and child abuse prevention, character building, and program implementation. You can depend on the Y to ensure camp is well supervised. Summer Camp seems far off, but it will be here before you know it. We hope you and your family will join us and help make it their best summer ever. Our camp day is built on an open programming model where campers will experience daily opportunities to select which games, crafts, or activities they participate in. Not only will they get to follow their own interests, but they’ll make their own path throughout the summer. There will be organized events and large group games outside the regular open programming periods. Each week, different fun opportunities will come to our camps. Being part of our summer day camp program goes beyond silly songs and games. Camp is about learning who you are, becoming what you want to be, developing new skills and healthy habits, reaching goals, and building relationships. Our summer day camp helps kids gain self-confidence, build character, and focus on the whole child in spirit, mind, and body.

Each camp lasts one week, Monday through Friday, and the kids will learn about a different "famous" artist each day. They will then create a project, each day, based on the artist. Camp is limited to 8 kids per session, ages 12 -15.

 

The camp starts promptly at 1pm and ends at 4pm. During camp the kids will receive snacks and water, and there is a 30-minute art show on the last day (Friday) of your child's camp for the parents to view their child's art projects.

 

Lastly, you may cancel your child's camp order up to 48 hours after the order is placed to receive a full refund. After 48 hours, camp orders may not be cancelled, but they may be transferred to another week if space is available. If space is not available, you will receive a store credit at Thomas Andrew Art that is valid for 1 year.

WELCOME Is your child ready to trade stories, share a favorite book, or sing camp songs with a new friend? Do they like to be greeted with smiles and high-fives from staff and fellow campers for accomplishing something new? Does your child wish to fit in just for being who they are? At Y Summer Day Camp, we are here to make your kids feel welcome and to help them quickly realize this is a place where they belong and can be themselves – try new things – learn new skills – make new friends – and be a part of something great! A camp experience can be a powerful tool for personal growth. Knowing this, we strive to offer the highest quality camps with the most diverse opportunities. Great care goes into creating a fun and safe environment. We work hard to hire staff of the highest integrity and personal and spiritual maturity, and are enthusiastic about camp. All staff are thoroughly screened and background checked and receive training in first aid, CPR, safety and child abuse prevention, character building, and program implementation. You can depend on the Y to ensure camp is well supervised. Summer Camp seems far off, but it will be here before you know it. We hope you and your family will join us and help make it their best summer ever. Our camp day is built on an open programming model where campers will experience daily opportunities to select which games, crafts, or activities they participate in. Not only will they get to follow their own interests, but they’ll make their own path throughout the summer. There will be organized events and large group games outside the regular open programming periods. Each week, different fun opportunities will come to our camps. Being part of our summer day camp program goes beyond silly songs and games. Camp is about learning who you are, becoming what you want to be, developing new skills and healthy habits, reaching goals, and building relationships. Our summer day camp helps kids gain self-confidence, build character, and focus on the whole child in spirit, mind, and body.

Each camp lasts one week, Monday through Friday, and the kids will learn about a different "famous" artist each day. They will then create a project, each day, based on the artist. Camp is limited to 8 kids per session, ages 12 -15.

 

The camp starts promptly at 1pm and ends at 4pm. During camp the kids will receive snacks and water, and there is a 30-minute art show on the last day (Friday) of your child's camp for the parents to view their child's art projects.

 

Lastly, you may cancel your child's camp order up to 48 hours after the order is placed to receive a full refund. After 48 hours, camp orders may not be cancelled, but they may be transferred to another week if space is available. If space is not available, you will receive a store credit at Thomas Andrew Art that is valid for 1 year.
