Little Art Camps
Ages 5-7 | 9am - 3pm
Artists’ Exchange little art camps are designed to capture the imagination of younger campers. Each week’s theme will match our older art camps and projects will be adjusted to match cognitive ability and dexterity of the 5 - 7 year old age group. Campers will explore a wide variety of materials. The size of the scissors may shrink, but not the creative fun in these camps!
Ages 9-13 *unless otherwise noted | 9am - 3pm
A variety of camps for children to immerse themselves in clay studio studies ranging from basic hand building, wheel throwing, and sculpting. Campers will learn a variety of skills designed to fit the camp they are in. Ceramic focus campers will learn the technical aspects of recycling, slab work, build a simple kiln from a metal trash can and firing pottery in it. All under the guidance of a professional potter and the fire department. Clay adventures offers a beginners taste of experimenting with clay. Sculpting camps have a slight focus on bringing 2D drawings and images of characters into 3D form.
Digital Media Camps
AGES *NOTED BELOW | 9am - 3pm
Jump into this fascinating animation technique. If you have ever wondered how movie greats such as Kubo and the Two Strings or The Nightmare Before Christmas were made, this is the camp for you! Campers will make their own short movies using drawings, cut out creations, and some claymation.
AGES 8 - 12 *unless otherwise noted | 9am - 3pm
From story and character to staging and set design, participants will explore all aspects of developing a full–scale theatrical production by immersing themselves in each role through fun yet intensive workshops, culminating in a performance for friends and family.

Extended Care is a great option for the parents who need to work around their work schedules. At Artists' Exchange, after-camp care takes a fun and educational approach. Artists’ Exchange Summer Camp Extended Care program will model the camp's theme with fun and enriching projects and activities. With strong influence of art, we will incorporate science, writing and math. We will encourage children to open their minds and engage in new opportunities to learn and meet someone new.
Children will come into extended care and start with a smooth relaxing transition then spend their time exploring exciting activities such as wacky science experiments, creative writing and additional activities related to that week of camp. Campers will end their session with a calm and relaxing closure to a very engaging day at camp.
8-9am: $8 per hour/$40 per week
3-4pm: $8 per hour/$40 per week
Drop-in: $10 per hour (day of, cash only)
Please contact Artists' Exchange if you need to customize an extended care schedule.
How do we get you the donations in order to qualify for the camp discount?
If you have not signed up for camp yet, you can drop them off during business hours M-F 9-4pm and we will give you the coupon code to register.
If you want to register now or have already registered, we prefer that you sign up for a payment plan, if you paid in full, that's okay, you can bring in your donations any time before your final payment is due.
Where do I drop off donations if the front door is locked?
If you need to drop off after business hours, the Studio Entrance is open 4-8. You can leave your donations with the monitor on duty, be sure to put your name on it! Donations are to be left in the director's office.
When do your camps usually fill up?
Little art and Pottery camps are full in mid-March. Remaining ceramics camps and stop motion camps are full early-April. Theater and Art camps for older campers are typically full mid-June.
What do I do If all the camps for my age range are full?
We highly recommend the waitlist for our camps. Oftentimes parents pull out and we end up taking people from the waitlist, sometimes the 4th or 5th person, especially because the parents who waitlist early make other plans.
My child falls just outside the age range, can they still sign up?
Each case is different based on how many kids are enrolled and the current age range of each group. Call or email the camp director at Shannon.email@example.com.
My child attended one week of camp at the artists exchange, how do I obtain your organization's tax id number to claim his camp time as childcare?
You actually have better access to it than we do through your care.com account, but we can always resend your receipt which has our Tax EIN on the bottom if you do not have your original emailed receipt. At the bottom of the email click on the link “View or print your receipt”
How late can I pick up my child?
Early drop off begins at 8am and late pick up runs until 4pm. Because we are keeping campers in stable pods, we are presented with staffing restraints and cannot offer care later than 4pm at this time.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes, please email the director for the application at Shannon.firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is your cancellation policy?
Because no two cancelation are alike, Here are your options:
If a camp is canceled by Artists Exchange, it is fully refundable. For cancellations of a single day due to weather or full classroom quarantine, reimbursements are issued in the form of a credit for a makeup or future session. If you need to cancel due to COVID-19 illness or quarantine, your registration is fully refundable for the unused days of camp. Any other cancellations have a $50 non-refundable fee. If you cancel and wish to transfer to another camp, the fee is waived. If you cancel and choose to hold the funds in a credit towards future use, the fee is also waived.
I have a credit from canceling my camp last year, how do I use my credit for this summer?
When you register for a camp this summer, you will have the option to use your credit at checkout. If you cannot process it online yourself, give us a call M-F 9-3 and we can do it over the phone.
Can I make a payment outside of the automatic payment window or pay in full early?
You can log onto your account with care.com and make a payment any time. If you would like us to process your card for a certain amount we can do that on the back end also.
