Hunter Museum Announces Summer Camps

Registration Now Open Online

Thursday, March 13, 2014

The Hunter Museum is offering nine camps this summer for children ages 4-12 (children must be potty trained and age listed on the first day of camp). Each summer, art instructors design new activities and experiences in the arts for the campers. Camps incorporate art making, physical activity, field trips to local parks and attractions and visits by local artists. Each week of camp closes with an Art Exhibition where campers share their hard work and creativity with family and friends.

All supplies and snacks (one snack for half-day sessions and two for a full-day session) are included in the camp cost. Camp T-shirts are also included. Packed lunches are required. 

Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly suggested. A child is not enrolled in camp until participants receive a confirmation email from rveal@huntermuseum.org.

Register online by at www.huntermuseum.org/summercamp2014, or contact Rachel Veal at 752-2051 for more information or to register by phone.
