Art Camps FAQ

What age must my child be to participate?

We group our camps into age groups: ages 5 to 8 and 9 to 12.

AGES 5 to 8
Camps running January to June: Your child must be at least 5 years old by June 30.
Camps running June to December:  Your child must be at least 5 years old by December 31.

AGES 9 to 12
Camps running January to June: Your child must be at least 9 years old by June 30.
Camps running June to December:  Your child must be at least 9 years old by December 31.

Can I still register my child if they fall outside of the age range for the camp?

Activities are designed for children within a specific age range. In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, participants must fall within the indicated age range for the camp.

What is the difference between the camps for children aged 5 to 8 and aged 9 to 12?

Both camps offer the same activities but their complexity is adapted to the abilities and interests for each age group. Art-making projects are more complex for the 9 to 12 age group. The camp for children aged 5 to 8 incorporates more play time and games.
