Summer Camp: More Than A Box










From boats to cities, castles to spaceships, and even characters! The potential is endless when it comes to creating with an array of cardboard boxes, an array of art supplies, and a dash of imagination.

Collect from nature through scavenger hunts in Waveny Park and build a different project every day.

Our creations will be brought to life with a final sharing of storytelling, creative drama, and movement on the final day of camp. 

Bring a snack, water bottle, and comfortable clothing for building and exploring. 

Monday, July 22 – Friday, July 26

Members $255 Non-members / $280
