kids 'n arts summer camp will provide your children with an enriching art and theatre experience unlike any other camp! Campers will spend mornings creating a number of exciting art projects inspired by the museum's rich art collection, followed by afternoons of storytelling, theatre games, and performing. Your children will have the benefit of working with faculty and students from Niagara University's Theatre Department, teaching artists and professionals from the Castellani Art Museum, and special guests, including NURT (Niagara University Repertory Theatre) and visits from some of the area's finest artists.
The cost per child is just $175 each week.* A latch key option is offered this year from 8:15 to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 to 4:45 p.m. daily at an additional cost of $25 per week per child. Sign up today for one, two, three or all four weeks of camp. Space is limited to 25 children per week.
