Register now for Arts Alive Summer Camps!

Arts Alive is once again offering two summer camps this year in conjunction with West Point Public Schools--the Summer Arts Camp and the Missoula Children's Theatre Camp. Both camps will be held at the West Point Schools complex.

The Summer Arts Camp, sponsored by Charles City-James City-New Kent-York County Farm Bureau, offers classes to be held daily during the week of June 27-July 1 from 9:00 AM to 3:15 PM. Classes offered include dance, visual arts, drama, music, and more. They will be taught by local teachers and artists, and are available for ages completed kindergarten to age 14. Cost is $45 for each week-long class, or $150 for four week-long classes. Price includes supplies and a camp T-shirt.

The Missoula Children's Theatre Camp will be held the week of August 8-13. Campers will rehearse and attend workshops all week with two professional actors from the Missoula Children's Theatre to present two performances of Jungle Book. Performances will be held at the Robinson/Olsson Auditorium on August 13 at 3:00 and 7:00 PM. This camp is open to students who have completed kindergarten to grade 11. The cost is $85 for the week with an additional cost for performance tickets. The camp will run between the hours of 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday, with a day-long commitment on Saturday. Campers age 7 and under will finish at noon every day except Saturday. All campers will participate in the performances of Jungle Book.

Registration is open and both camps will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Campers who have parents, grandparents, or legal guardians who live in the Arts Alive service areas of New Kent, King William, King and Queen, and West Point will have first priority.
