Spring Break Arts Camp at Boundary Waters

CAC’s Spring Break Arts Camp keeps your child active and engaged during the break in a fun exploration of the arts while maintaining educational impact. Both performing and visual artist instructors develop a theme and engage the students in creating works around that theme. The multi-dimensional instruction keeps students coming back year after year. The 2023 Spring Break Arts Camp takes place April 3 – 7 and is held at Boundary Waters Activity Center from 9-4 daily (with early drop-off and late pick-up available) and is for ages 7-12 years old.  Cost is $135 ($125 CAC members).

The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) has put the finishing touches on a comprehensive set of summer experiences for local children.  The CAC understands that finding the perfect summer day camp for a creative child can be a particular challenge, but with so many arts camps, classes, and events already planned for the season, Douglas County parents will likely find the perfect fit. Summer arts education comes in many forms from the CAC.  As always, various one-day workshops and classes are offered, but for youngsters who have extra time in the summer, the Summer Arts Camp was created, which provides longer-term day camp instruction from local art teachers.

The theme of this year’s Summer Arts Camp is “priZmatic,”  The concept tunes into the mystery and beauty of color and light. Students gain the benefit of learning from multiple instructors over the course of five, seven-hour days at the gorgeous Hunter Park.  Topics include painting, drawing, theater, music, and sculpture. At the end of the camp, there is a performance, art show, and reception for parents. The goal of Summer Arts Camp is to encourage and reveal the talents of every student to highlight the impact the arts have on young children in developing their creative skills, social interactions, and cultural awareness.

During the Summer Arts Camp, artists will work with each student on specific projects within their discipline that reflect and expand on a common theme addressed by all the teachers. The four main art forms that will be explored are 3-D art, 2-D art, Theater, and Music. The camp concludes with a Celebration of Success, for families to enjoy a final performance and debut the work the campers have produced. Fees for the week are $135 for the first child ($125 for CAC members) with a 5 dollar discount for siblings. Camp runs from 9 am – 4 pm with an early drop-off and late pick-up option for an additional fee of $10 each.
