Summer Camps

Our Camps are designed to unleash children’s creativity through art exploration.

Science shows that children exposed to the power of art are better problem solvers, creative thinkers, and strong leaders. …and we know that being creative is FUN! Join us for one of our fun summer sessions as a way to explore the various offerings at Inspire–clay, paint, pencil, pastels, and more!

PLEASE: 1. Dress your child in clothes that can get dirty.  We have smocks, if they want, but they don’t cover everything! 2. Bring a snack for break time.  If they are coming for both sessions, please bring lunch. There is a refrigerator available.     There will be time to eat and go to the neighborhood playground from 12:00-1:00. 3. Let Inspire know if your child has any special needs, allergies, etc… 4. Sign in your child at drop off and sign out at pick up. 5. Drop off your child no earlier than 8:45 for the morning camps & 12:45pm for the afternoon camps.  Please pick them up      no later than 12:15 or 5:15 pm respectively.  A $15 late fee will apply if you pick up afterwards.
