In this imaginative winter arts program campers will immerse themselves in art, theater, music, and dance while being inspired by this winter’s theme:
Winter and the books that brought this beautiful season to life.

A look through award winning children’s literature. Each day at camp includes the visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpting, and craft activities), with a splash of music (singing, dancing, and exploring different instruments), and theater (stories, puppetry, role playing, and other dramatic activities). The East End Arts School offers a home-like setting with comfortable large ventilated studio and fenced-in, park-like grounds for outdoor play – yes they will play outside in the cold. Keeping the group small will enable our staff to provide a safe and socially distanced atmosphere for a supportive camp experience with a ton of personal attention.
