Your Child’s Day at The Great thou Art Camp
At 9:00 am, campers gather in their color groups for sign-in and assembly. There is a snack during morning studio, and approximately a one-hour-long lunch/recess break midday. At the end of each afternoon, campers meet again in their color groups for an afternoon assembly with campers sharing examples from each studio. Camp ends at 3:00 p.m. as the campers sign out. There are no extended hours and families will be charged $15 for each 15 minutes a child remains after camp is dismissed.
Monday through Friday, campers rotate through both morning and afternoon studios.
On Friday afternoons, there is a slightly shorter studio time to allow for “parade practice” in preparation for our Friday afternoon program that starts at 3:00 p.m. Families gather at 2:30 p.m., view the parade, meet the artist teachers and pick up their campers art work.
Children are initially divided into different grade-peer groups. Notifications of group assignments are sent before your child attends. We call them “color group” and grades and colors vary dependent upon enrollment. (Please note that friend requests must be at the same grade level.) For children who have friends in different grades, it is important to note that color groups remain together ONLY for Monday’s orientation schedule, for sign-in, and for sign-out. For Lunch, Recess and Studio Time, children often join friends or siblings of different ages or grades. Each color group has two counselors (age 16 and up) and a counselor-in-training (age 14-15), who accompany color groups throughout the week and assist in studios as needed.
