I attended this camp for just about every year from when I was in kindergarten until eighth grade! It's a wonderful way for kids to build community and hone their social skills within a small group while expressing themselves creatively in a supportive environment. The teachers became like aunts and uncles to me, and I truly feel I learned a lot from them. With a variety of mediums, and plenty of different projects and teaching styles, it's hard for kids to get bored here. I highly recommend this camp as a worthy way of spending a fun, productive spring break.
