The organizers push the young artists to think beyond the walls of the camp venue to discover, learn, and wonder about how art can shape our collective futures. By structuring their summer camps so that no two camps are the same, families can rest assured that their children will have an enriched art-infused summer whether they take part in one camp, two camps, or all of the camps.
