Summer Art Camps

Summer 2024

Children and teens don’t stop needing creative outlets when school is out, which is why the AMA schedules weeklong art camps all throughout the summer.

Each camp has a theme and activities that are age-appropriate. We’ll also make sure they get some time outside to absorb much-needed Vitamin D! Campers can bring a brown bag lunch or you can purchase lunch with your registration. All campers participate in the pizza party on the final day of each camp.

Space is limited and many of these camps fill up early, so register your camper as soon as you know what your summer travel plans are. We have a terrific lineup of engaging art camps to choose from. AMA members, don’t forget you get membership discounts!

Thanks to generous donations to the AMA through donations at AMA Art Ball and other contributions, camp scholarships were available.
