Summer Arts for Kids

Thank you for your interest in Thornton Academy’s Summer Arts Camp for Kids program.This is our 22nd year cultivating creativity and promoting self-expression for children, ages 8-12. It promises to be another exciting and fun week for everyone!

We believe that the arts are an essential part of a full and satisfying life. Exposure to the arts sharpens the skills of observation and opens young minds to infinite possibilities.This camp is designed to engage students intellectually, physically, and emotionally. We look forward to greeting new campers and familiar faces again this summer!

Each year the professional staff designs and implements engaging and age-appropriate activities around one theme.This year’s theme is “Passport to Fun!” Join as we try new ways of working, reminiscing about years past, and creating new memories of summer art camp fun!

Each day begins with all campers joining together for Circle Time to discuss the day and upcoming events. Campers are grouped by age and follow a rotating schedule of activities where they participate in projects and activities in each subject based on the week’s theme. At the end of each day, groups gather to share their experiences and creations and to play outside games.

We will celebrate the week on Friday at 2PM with an art display in the Atrium and performances in the Garland Auditorium.
