Sibling Camps

Camps are drop-off camps designed to help your child explore art materials, ask questions, learn answers, solve problems, and gain independence. All camps are centered around creating & art. We will use a variety of art materials in each camp. (Including but not limited to: clay, paint, watercolors, glue, beads, markers, crayons, plaster, paper, etc.)  Camp descriptions are somewhat open-ended because our camps are designed to be fueled by the input and ideas of each group of campers.

All camps will be held at our Main Avenue location off of Loveland-Madeira Road.

Please go to our general camp information to view all other camp information.

If you wish to place your child(ren) on a waitlist please, select the camp on the form below and submit your form as normal. You will not be charged. We will notify you via e-mail if any spots open up!

Please note that most camps will fill during discounted period (before April 2, 2019.) It’s best to secure a spot and cancel later if necessary. If cancellation happens 2 weeks before  start of a scheduled camp, camp can be fully refunded.
