We have delayed the start of camp as our previous venue, the Newmark Theatre, will remain closed until October.   We were sold out prior to the closure and delay.  Currently, we're down to the final few spots, so register today!  Note: We are unable to provide as much hands-on assistance as in previous years.  As such, all campers must be able to self-manage and read & write at a 2nd grade or higher level.

About MetroArts Inc. Kids Camp

Since 1993,  MetroArts Inc. Kids camp gives kids ages 7-12 a chance to be immersed in visual arts, music, theatre, and dance  Monday through Friday, at Northwest Academy July 20-24, July 27-31, and August 3-7.  

What happens at Kids Camp?

Campers arrive by 9 a.m. and participate in fun warm-up exercises, and receive the creative words of the day. Every day campers learn and create in each art form. Camp ends at 3:58 p.m. with a prompt at 4 p.m. pickup. 

Videos of camper performances and other camp happenings are available on our YouTube channel located here.

Internships - We need your help!

For older kids who would like to participate, and earn valuable volunteer experience, we offer Internships for kids ages 13-17.  Internships have limited availability, and priority is given to former campers.
