Summer Programs

2018 Summer Program
Registration is NOW OPEN!

Registration for our 2018 Summer Pottery & Art Programs are just opening. The program will again be patterned after the successful Art Destinations™ Summer Camps which ran through the Montgomery County Department of Recreation for over 15 years. We have always had a packed program and fabulous feedback from all the kids. Many children—boys and girls alike—come for 2, 3, 4, or even more sessions, year after year. This program has been designed for kids 7 to 14 years of age to let them have access to lots of supplies and to allow them to create at their own pace, through experimentation, with limited, but targeted direction. We also use a lot of everyday items and transform them into works of art. We encourage them to "think outside the box"—or to even use the box itself!


Tuition: All-Day 9 am to 3 pm* —$265 per child per session, payable at the time of registration. Register for multiple sessions at one time and take $10 off each additional session. We will also offer that $10 per session discount for siblings signed up for the same session. We may also offer optional drop-in one-day programs for $60.
