The Center for Contemporary Arts Summer ArtCamps are a multi-faceted endeavor designed to achieve wholesome educational recreation for youth ages 7-13, instill a sense of community service, build self-esteem by providing youth opportunities to create legacies to contribute to the community and create opportunities for inter-generation interaction.  

This summer, we're offering four ArtCamps that students can attend either in-person OR virtually!

Space is limited. Register today!
