VIRTUAL SUMMER ART CAMP
Virtual Camp Dates: June 21 - July 30, 2021 (6 weeks) - Please note there will be no camp on July 5th (holiday)
Since 1953 Allens Lane Art Center has hosted a summer art camp for kids ages 5-13, for 8 weeks of fun and arts education. With enrollment in physical camp limited to 40 campers this year, we are offering a separate, 6-week virtual camp experience to accommodate those campers who are unable or chose not to attend in person. Parents are welcome to sign up their children for just one or all six weeks of virtual camp.
Our campers will join in the fun and activities from their own homes. Classes will be taught over Zoom. High speed internet access, a computer strong enough to handle the Zoom app, and a dedicated space where the kids can create are required. A box of supplies for virtual campers will be available for each child and can be picked up at the center before each week.
YOUNG ONES - AGES: 5 & 6
For the Young Ones (age 5-6), we're offering a daily class from 9:00 - 10:15am filled with a variety of both visual and performing arts instructors (Acting/Dancing/Singing/Art).
CAMPERS AGES: 7 - 9
For our older campers aged 7-9 , we're offering two different classes a day. A Visual Arts Class in the morning from 9:00 - 10:00am and a Performing Arts Class in the early afternoon from 12:45 -1:45pm. Campers may register for either one of these classes or they may take both.
CAMPERS AGES: 10 - 13
For our older campers aged 10-13 , we're offering two different classes a day. A Visual Arts Class in the morning from 10:30 - 11:30am and a Performing Arts Class in the early afternoon from 2:00 -3:00pm. Campers may register for either one of these classes or they may take both.
Our virtual summer art camp is a weekly class (M-F) that costs $150 per week. Young Ones (aged 5 & 6) are offered one class per week. Older campers (ages 7-13) are offered a choice of visual or performing arts classes. Older campers can also take both the visual and performing arts classes for $300. There are no discounts for virtual summer camp classes.
Older campers (age 7-13) who take both Visual and Performing arts classes in the same week will get a $5 per week credit (up to $30 total) to use at the center on any of our programs throughout the next year (not a discount for this year's camp). Once camp has ended, the Art Center will send you a credit certificate for the amount.

8:30am – 3:30pm
For all campers registered for visual arts classes, a free weekly box of art supplies can be picked up at the Art Center. Supplies will be made available on the Friday before each week of camp at the Art Center from 4:00 - 5:00pm and will be brought right to your car door by camp staff members (no contact). These supply materials will contain some basics for doing their weekly arts projects but some projects will be made with common everyday items found in the home. Supplies for the performing arts classes will be emailed to the campers (if applicable).
Every day of the week our campers get a variety of activities so camp stays fun and interesting. If the center is able to have enough campers, the final two weeks of camp will focus on finishing up art projects and rehearsing for a Virtual Camp Play and a Virtual Gallery Exhibit.

"My daughter loves Allens Lane Summer Art Camp and will not go anywhere else. We plan our summer vacations around camp so that she can attend at least 4 weeks. She's already asking if she can return next summer."
"Our camp experience last year (somewhere else) was not so great. This year, Kelly was in absolute heaven! She was up early and ready to go every morning (that never happens). Now she won't stop singing, dancing, painting or drawing! Worth every dime! Money well spent!"
"Our son blossomed with his love of singing and dancing under the wonderful staff at Allens Lane's Summer Art Camp."
"My daughter was exposed to such a wide variety of arts through perfomances, classes and trips. That combined with traditional camp activities like outdoor games and playground makes the Allens Lane Camp so unique."
