Creations has been providing children ages 6 – 13 yrs. a unique and memorable week camp experience since 2008. Campers enjoy a wide variety of age appropriate daily activities designed to meet the needs of all who attend. Our experienced, caring staff is committed to making sure every child feels welcome.

When you sign-up for a camp, you will need to complete a camp registration form (which includes a medical release). We need a non-refundable deposit to hold your spot and you can provide payment over the phone or pay in person during regular studio hours (we are closed on Monday’s).

Our Summer Camps, Christmas Camps, and March Break Camps have earned us several Reader’s Choice Awards and are one of the most successful programs we offer at the Studio. Specific camps, such as the Girls Only Summer Camp, can fill as early as 3 months before they start. Campers will enjoy working with many different mediums such as clay, bisque, and canvas.

Please remember to pack your child’s lunches, snacks and beverages (water bottles) with no nuts.  Also please dress for a mess! Although we provide plastic aprons- the acrylic paint will stain their clothes. You can send money for popcorn or snacks at the movie theatre if you wish. Thank you – See you Soon!
