Our popular summer standby returns this year for two one-week sessions, featuring creative construction play, games, and outdoor fun for kids ages 7 to 12. Working alone or in groups and fueled by their own imagination, participants will build a colorful, collaborative world of their own. Led by local artist and experienced program director Ellis Jacobson, this camp will elevate your child's building skills and take their summer to the next level.
