SUMMER CAMPS ARE FULL FOR 2024. Contact me if you are interested in having your child added to the wait list.

*We are offering three weeks of camp in summer 2024: July 8-12, July 15-19, and July 22-26. The camps are all the same, so please sign your child(ren) up for just one week.  Thank you!*

Do your kids love getting messy, making art, and exploring nature?  If so, this is the art camp for your 5-10 year old!  Nature Art Camp will run from 8:30am to 2:00pm, M-F, and is led by professional mixed media artist Jordan Kim and early childhood specialist Anna Diem.  During our week together up in beautiful Parkdale, we’ll spend each day focused on different aspects of the natural world.  Together we’ll explore the subject through hands-on science experiments, field exploration, and artistic expression.  Campers will create loads of artwork, collaborative projects, new friendships, and so much more!  Each art project will tie back into our connection to the natural world and each other.  Join us for a week of letting our imaginations play together! 

We are offering reduced rates for sibling campers again this year ($50 discount for siblings).  **Arts in Education of the Gorge is generously offering a few scholarships to families in need of financial assistance.** Contact Jordan if you are interested in applying for a scholarship. Camp fee includes all necessary supplies.  To eliminate food sharing, campers are asked to bring their own snacks and lunches.

Cancellation Policy: Payment must be received with the registration to hold your child’s spot. Cancellations made more than 4 weeks before camp start date will receive a full refund. Refunds will not be issued for cancellations made less than 4 weeks of camp start date. Spots are limited each week so sign up soon!
