“Summer camps provide an opportunity for kids to try out something new, without making a big commitment to it.  If your child enjoys it, sign them up for lessons or fall classes.  If not, at least they have had the opportunity to try it.  We keep the cost of our camps affordable because we believe every child deserves the opportunity to explore the arts.”  Amanda Gunter, owner
