This summer Laumeier is offering several one-week sessions of Art Camp between June 10 and August 2, 2013. Each camp’s offerings are unique, so sign up for more than one to receive a broader experience! Camps are led by local, experienced art instructors and supported by professional staff. All materials are provided and each camper receives an Art Camp t-shirt.

Seven one-week, half-day sessions are available for ages 4 to 6. Camp hours are from 9AM – NOON. In addition to age-appropriate projects, Camp includes storytelling, games and snack time. The average staff to camper ratio is 1:5.
CAMPS FOR AGES 6 TO 15
The Art Camp program for ages 6 to 15 offers eight one-week sessions from 9AM – 3PM. Campers are divided into groups by age, and projects are designed to be age-appropriate.

Parents are not required to pay for more than one week of extended day at a time. Late requests are granted on a space available basis. Costs for each extended day: $5 for each morning session; $7.50 for each afternoon session. Charges are not prorated. Membership discount does not apply to extended day fees.
Scholarship opportunities for educational programs are available through the Laumeier Sculpture Park Education Scholarship Fund and the Dorte Probstein and Mary Ann Srenco Art Camp Scholarship Fund. This assistance is based on financial need for up to 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the tuition cost for camp. Applicants are encouraged to submit required materials by April 15th for processing. If funding is still available after that date, scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Because we cannot hold a space in a camp session or class without a completed registration, please send in a completed registration form with your scholarship application.
