SUMMER SAMPLERS (AGES 6-8) 

From creating masterpieces with clay to hip hopping, and from dancing through the decades to hooping for health, Arts Together runs riot with summertime adventures for children ages 6-8. Put on a show, compose your own music, paint a picture, or dance ‘til the cows come home! These arts enrichment programs allow children to dig deep into favorite artistic disciplines and/or tackle new ones while having lots of fun. Your child creates a summer full of experiences that are the perfect fit for them! Six to eight-year-olds can sign up for a half day camp or a whole day comprised of two camps. All campers should pack a snack and a reusable drink container each day. Those attending all day will have a supervised 30 minute lunch period and will need to bring their own lunch.
