All Day Summer Camp Ages 6-9, Week 1: June 8-12, 2020
Welcome to LibertyTown Summer Camps!
Our all-day camps run from 9am to 5 pm and include a 1 hr. break from 12:30-1:30 for lunch and two 30-minute breaks at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm. Each hour and a half class will explore another facet and medium of art, including painting, drawing, clay, fiber and art history.
Parents are asked to pack a lunch and snacks (we have a refrigerator on site) for their kids. No peanuts please. Some parents have requested to bring snacks for the whole class. Please let us know if you would like to do this and we will make sure to let everyone know they have a “snack break” on that day.
On Friday of each week we will have a CAMP PARTY from 5:00-6:00pm. Refreshments will be served, and parents and siblings are welcome too!!
Full descriptions of the Class Periods are below!
This year we’re offering a themed program for each week for you to choose from!! This will allow kids to take multiple weeks and get a fresh perspective, even if they take the same courses!
Week 1, June 8-12th
