Arts Together is thrilled to offer a series of fun and enriching summer camp programs for 9-to-12-year-olds 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 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).

Sign up for one half day camp or do a full day with 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 and two snacks.
