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 afternoon, there is a slightly shorter studio time to allow for rehearsals in preparation for the Friday afternoon program that starts at 2:30 p.m. Families gather at 2:30 p.m., enjoy the program, meet the artist teachers and pick up their camper’s art work.
Children are divided into different grade-peer groups. Notifications of group assignments are sent before your child attends. 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 at all times. For Lunch and Recess 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.
