Age: Children entering from 2nd to 6th grade.

Registration information: $50 per child. Register on eventbrite starting April 15. (The link is not ready yet.)

Through our artistic projects and our musical selections, children will try to answer this question: What does “home” mean to you? The children will be divided into two age groups and will have daily art and music lessons. Snacks will be provided daily. The camp will conclude with a face-to-face art exhibit and musical performance for the enjoyment of friends and family.
