SUMMER SPARKS Seniors (AGES 9-12) 

Arts Together is thrilled to offer a series of fun and enriching summer camp programs for nine to twelve at Raleigh Charter High School, conveniently located only a five minute drive away from Arts Together. Campers who participate in the Arts Together Summer Sparks camps will be able to take advantage of Raleigh Charter's gorgeous facilities.  Families who are looking for special arts and educational enrichment programs for their children won't want to miss out on these exciting camps, taught by full-time teachers (many from the Wake County Public School System). Nine to twelve-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. 

Tuition of Summer Sparks Junior camps are $160 per camp unless otherwise noted
