Summer Camps!

Summer Camps Are Here!
Hard to believe it is already that time of year? 
Sooner than we know it...the snow will melt and the grass wil
l start growing! The Art House has some exciting news...in order to expand our camp offerings, and provide more children with hands-on creative experiences...we are partnering with Wonder & Wisdom! 
This years, Summer Journeys Camps are guaranteed to be fun for all ages! By coming together we will be able to provide themed camps for two different age groups simultaneously! 

General Camp Information                                                                
Summer Journeys Camps for children ages 6 to 12 run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Camp days often include supervised afternoon swim time at beautiful Caspian Lake. 
A nutritious lunch and whole food snacks are included in the camp fee. Children may also opt to bring lunch from home. Camps are based at our “village campus” located on the first floor of the Greensboro United Church. We have a beautiful indoor program space and a large backyard that contains butterfly, herb, and vegetable gardens.

The village campus is within walking distance to Caspian Lake. We often take field trips to Highland Lodge, with 150 acres of trails and a variety of natural habitats, forest, and lakeshore to explore, and to the Wonder & Wisdom community greenspace in Craftsbury village.

Need-based financial assistance to help reduce offset a portion of the camp fees is available through a camp scholarship fund.
