Summer Arts Under The Umbrella
Important Registration Tip for PARENTS:
Create your Umbrella Account BEFORE adding camp weeks for your children to the shopping cart!
Learning, growing, and experimenting through art is at the heart of what we do.
For Summer 2021, we are prepared to continue this mission through In-Person learning following the most up-to-date Covid-19 safety guidelines. Information on the specific steps we are taking to ensure a safe camp environment are available here: Health & Safety.
With a focus on the love of art and a keen awareness of the developmental needs of children and young adults, our programming covers arts education for Grades K-6 (ages 5-12 yrs) instructed by experienced practicing artists, arts educators, and teachers. Additionally we have an excellent Counselor-in-Training program for ages 14-16.
Small classes, not exceeding 10 students per group, ensure plenty of individual attention and a safely distanced learning environment. This summer, as an additional precautionary measure, classes will primarily be occurring in outside classrooms. Each age group is led by one of our trained Teacher’s Assistants. The TA gets to know each child and works to build a cooperative spirit within the group.
We offer arts for every interest. Children will have the opportunity to try a variety of artistic disciplines. Included may be disciplines such as: Drawing & Painting, 2D and 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Performance Art, Woodworking, and More!
Each week has a unique theme with projects designed to engage your child’s creativity and artistic spirit.
Plan around your family vacations or summer camp schedules by mixing and matching weeks / program options based on availability and interests. We are flexible and will accept enrollment for any combination of weeks.

Counselor-in-Training Program for ages 14 – 16:
CITs are “Counselors-in-training.” The nature of the CIT program is for middle and high school aged young adults ages 14-16 to develop a sense of responsibility through observation, participation, planning and implementation. Both assistant teachers and CITs have the opportunity to be a great help to both the classroom teachers and the children in all of the classes.
