ArtStart – Summer Art Program for Children

ArtStart is a summer art program for younger children (ages 4 1/2 to 9 years), offered during June and July and regularly enrolls 90 – 100 children.  ArtStart was founded by former Executive Director, Wendy Bidstrup, in 1985.  Since then, ArtStart has grown and is now serving a third generation of ArtStart campers.  TheArtStart staff consists of music teachers, art teachers, dance teachers, theater arts teachers and various specialists who teach throughout the year.  All faculty members are professionals in their fields. There are songs and games at the beginning and end of the morning.  Activities include arts and crafts, theater, music and stories.   Session I campers should bring a bag lunch to enjoy at camp.  There is an informal production at the end of each two-week session.
