It’s almost time…

At Creative Arts Day Camp, teachers are busy lesson planning and preparing in order to provide campers with the most incredible CADC experience yet!  We are all excited about our new theme, RevolutionARTists!, and are working hard to make sure students will continuously learn while they explore, experiment and test art-making methods and techniques as well as new concepts.

On behalf of our team, I would like to thank you for enrolling, telling your friends about our program and for all of the encouraging words we’ve received since the very beginning.  All of this support has led to another summer of completely full enrollment, with unprecedented early enrollment!  We are in the process of discussing how to expand in order to provide our creative art services to even more participants next summer.

More to come!  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or for more information!

All the best,


Session 3 is here!
