Kate Rowekamp, director of education and digital content producer at the Fitton Center said a variety of summer day camps will be offered, including Little Artist Camps (ages 5-9), Youth Camps (ages 7-12) and Teen Camps (ages 12-18.)
“Our camps are really great, because they offer a creative outlet that kids may not get with school being out during the summer…In fact, last summer was one of our most successful camp seasons,” Rowekamp said.
One camp is a spy/detective-themed camp, while another camp has an Alice in Wonderland theme. Other camps explore specific art forms, such as one that focuses on clay or another one that is devoted to printmaking.
“We have a lot of different things, so we can try to appeal to as many kids as possible,” said Rowekamp.
The week-long camps will run Monday through Friday. A few of the popular camps include Top-Secret Camp for ages 5-9 on July 13-17 and Under the Big Top Camp for ages 7-12, which runs from July 6-10.
“We’re doing things like making three-dimensional pizzas and Sherlock Holmes hats, and a lot of fun things for the sake of making and exploring art. So, it’s great that kids can explore and create during our summer camps,” Rowekamp said.
Families will receive an updated list of rules and regulations when they sign their children up, so everyone will be prepared in advance of arriving for the first day of summer camp. Additional details are available at www.fittoncenter.org/camp-2020-procedures-and-protocols.
The registration deadline for each camp is the Friday before the camp is scheduled to begin. Scholarships are available. Member and non-member pricing will be offered for the camps.
