Spring Break Camp

Our Spring Break Camp is a week-long, day camp program for school-age children (must currently be enrolled in kindergarten - 8th grade). Throughout the day, they will complete a range of projects in a variety of art media including ceramics, printmaking, and weaving. Camp days are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

All of our camps are fully inclusive. If your child has adaptive needs and you would like to discuss how to make this environment ideal for your child, please email our Assistant Director, Lisa Franko at: or call our office at 573.875.0275.

During the day, participating students complete different art projects in various media (Ceramics, Fibers, and Mixed Media). Between the media blocks, they have time to play both indoor and outdoor games and enjoy snacks.

Our elementary camps will run from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at our primary locations, 1724 McAlester Street and 800 Moss Street. Our camps for students in 6th-8th grade will run at 2109 Cottle Drive from 8:00 am - noon.

​Checking In & Out - Elementary

Morning check-in and roll call will occur between 7:45 and 8:15 a.m. Please be prompt! Bring your child to the front entrance of the location you were emailed where you will be greeted by a designated staff member who will check them in. Every child must be signed in and out every day by a staff member. Parents will not be allowed into the building, to minimize person-to-person contact and ensure the safety of all students.

​Dismissal will be between 4:45 and 5 p.m. every day. Please remain outside and knock on the door. A staff member will bring your child out to you.​ Any child not picked up by 5:15 will be charged an extra $5 for every 15 minutes they remain.

Camp Information

When inclement weather occurs, cancelations will be decided the night before the scheduled camp date. Parents will be contacted via email if the camp is canceled due to inclement weather or COVID-19. If the program is not canceled, but a student feels unsafe traveling, they can stay home, but NO make-up class will be provided. Please contact us if you fall into this category, and are interested in a credit for a future class.

If you have any questions about our cancelation policy, please don't hesitate to email us at​ ​or call us at 573-875-0275.
