About MetroArts Inc. Kids Camp

Celebrating our 28th year, MetroArts Inc. Kids camp gives kids ages 7-12 a chance to be immersed in all of the arts Monday through Friday, for one to three weeks, at Portland'5's Newmark Theatre building (July 6-10 and July 13-17) and Northwest Academy (July 20-24).  

What's happens at Kids Camp?

Campers arrive by 9 a.m. and are introduced to the key creative words of the day. Then it's off to create original works in visual arts, music, theater, and returning in 2020, DANCE. Each week campers also enjoy a field trip to the Portland Art Museum, a performance and workshop by a multicultural guest artist, and participate in a camp-wide performance for parents to enjoy.  Camp ends at 4 p.m.


Prior Friday multicultural guest artists have included Inka Jam, Journey Brazil, the Obo Addy Legacy Project, and Natya Leela Academy. 

  • Week 1, Multicultural Performance, Friday, July 10 - TBD


  • Week 2, Multicultural Performance Friday, July 17 - TBD

  • Week 3, Multicultural Performance Friday, July 24 - TBD

Access to the arts!  

We believe every creative kid should have access to the arts. Because of this, we offer full and partial scholarships depending on camper load and funds availability. If your family is receiving support in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program, SNAP, or WIC, you can access the scholarship application beginning on January 31, 2020. 


For older kids who would like to participate, and earn valuable volunteer experience, we offer Internships for kids ages 13-17.
