Boys and girls ages 5-15. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, national origin, ethnic origin or disability. Parents are expected to evaluate their child prior to enrollment. They should be ready to be at camp for a full day with no parent contact. Parents should think carefully before enrolling a child who has had limited time away from home or is not excited about attending because there are NO refunds after June 1st.
The heart of our program is our staff, made up of Enrichment specialists, Bachelor of Arts graduates, Le Cordon Bleu chefs, and performing arts professionals with years of experience working with children. The passion and expertise they bring to each workshop will spark your child’s creativity and enthusiasm. Our staff is dedicated to creating a fun, educational, and exciting summer experience for your child.
Our camp site is located at 27400 Canwood Drive and serves families throughout the west valley. Nestled in a country hillside setting surrounded by acres of natural beauty and is located just north of U.S. route 101 at the Liberty Canyon exit on the Ilan Ramon grounds.

*The Summer Art Academy is not affliated with Ilan Ramon.

Everyday at camp, during our Opening Circle, we draws a campers name out of a jar. This camper, if he or she wants to, gets to be the "Little Cheese" for the day and helps the directors with special camp duties.
Of course the "Little Cheese" also gets a special necklace to keep as a reminder of his or hers special day at camp!
All children must bring their own snacks and lunch in a sealed lunch container. NO paper or plastic bags. We will provide a cold drink during lunchtime. Please note that we do not provide refrigeration except for medications, so lunches should not contain perishables.
Parent's due to many serious allergies, The Art Camp is a "nut-free" camp. Please do NOT pack nuts/peanut butter/nut products in your child's lunch. Thanks!

Comfortable clothing is recommended during our summer program. Children should wear tennis shoes rather than open toe sandals if they are participating in fencing, karate, cooking, woodworking* or any of the dance workshops. Remember, clothes may get ruined from paints and inks. Art Academy t-shirts are available for $14.00 each. You may order on the application or anytime during camp sessions.

*Note: Children with open toe sandals or shoes will not be allowed onto the woodworking bus, no exceptions.
Early care starts at 7:30am and ends at 8:30am. The cost is $10 per hour, per child. You will simply drop in your child and we will bill you at the end of each week.

After care starts at 4:00p and ends at 6:00pm. The cost is $10 per hour, per child. You can prepay for the session in full when you apply for camp or you can drop in your child during the camp session and be charged at the end of each week ($10 per hour).
