Spring Break Camp 2024

Spring Break Art Camp

April 1-5 | 9 to 4:30 p.m. | Ages 8-13 | $295 per person

Our spring break art camp is offered in partnership with artist Jeanette P. Parssi and are modeled after Fishers Parks' acclaimed summer camp program.

Campers in this program will spend the first half of each day (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) learning new art techniques and completing art-based projects and activities, ending with an art show for family and friends on Friday. From 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. each day, campers will experience a more traditional day-camp setting, with a variety of fun and educational activities, from outdoor play, exploration, and games to STEM, music, and more! 

Please see camp curriculum below.
