CAMP STRUCTURE

Students will be divided into groups based on grade levels to ensure classes and activities are appropriately customized. Each group will be assigned one to two counselors who will join them throughout the duration of the day, including class and recreation time. Groups will rotate between classes and have the opportunity to work with all teaching artists every day. Teaching artists are experienced in their respective disciplines and will work closely with counselors to tailor activities to each group.

Both sessions are designed to balance between stationary and movement-based arts activities to keep students engaged and attentive. This, coupled with extended play time at lunch, ensures students will exercise their physical as well as creative energies. All campers will be together for kick-off, lunch, and end of day activities.
