SPEC Arts

Bring Out Your Creativity!

New for 2018! Let’s bring out our creative sides this summer as we explore the arts like painting, sketching, photography, dance, music or drama. Learn about God and about yourself as you try new things like maybe putting on a broadway musical or making your own short film or write your own song. The possibilities are endless!

Spec Arts runs with only a small group of campers so each camper gets specialized attention and instruction tailored to their ability level.

SPEC Arts runs alongside our kid’s camp program. Campers will join the kids for some of the activities. This program is designed to accommodate our higher functioning guests who are looking for more of a challenge than our larger Special Support program has to offer.

Age: 15 years and up
Cost: $940 (-$40 early bird before April 15th and -$10 if you register online)
July 22-27, Aug 5-10, Aug 12-17
