Summer Camp from Compassion Center for the ArtsOur summer arts camp is an opportunity for kids to get out of the house Monday-Friday, 8:30- 12:30. We even feed them lunch!The dates, of course, are obviously tentative, depending on when the stay-at-home orders are lifted by Governor Pritzker. If the June dates don't work, we will move all 4 camp weeks to July, following Independence Day weekend.This will be our second year of arts camp. It was very successful last summer. Each day of the week kids had hands-on classes in music, dance, theatre, and arts/crafts. We had 52 kids between the ages of 4 and 15 with very diverse demographics. The kids are divided by age group and rotate between classes which are modified by the teacher in each subject area. We hope to have at least 80 campers this year. Tuition costs vary depending on family income and is based on the Illinois free & reduced lunch program scale.Visit https://marcietaylor.wixsite.
