2022 SUMMER ARTS CAMP
Limited need-based scholarships available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information today!
The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood has a camp for every type of art-loving kid! For those beginning their lifelong love of the arts, we offer our newest camp: Artistic Adventurers which will introduce campers ages 5 and 6 to the wide world of art through play in music, movement, artmaking, and so much more. Our 7–10 year olds then have their pick to focus on visual and/or performing arts in our returning Young Artists + Young Actors camp. Starting at age 9, campers can take center stage in our 4-week long Broadway Actors camp devoted to staging a full-length production of a musical in our 500-seat theater!
Ages 5 & 6
Full Day: 9 am- 4 pm
AM Session: 9 am – noon | PM Session: 1 – 4pm
Art and Culture Center Arts School
1626 Harrison Street
Offered in both half and full-day sessions, this two-week camp connects 5 and 6-year-olds to the world of art through something we know they relate to: play! Campers will spend their camp days immersed in project-based art experiences such as papier-mâché and in drama and movement games while learning how to better communicate and work together. Campers will be able to gain experience in both the visual and performing arts while exploring what interests them most. At the end of each two-week session, campers will perform in a “Sharing Showcase,” in the Arts School backyard, where they will get to present and share something they’ve created for friends and family.
Families may choose half- or full-day, two-week sessions. Campers staying all day must bring a non-perishable bag lunch, refillable water bottle, and two snacks. Choose the morning and/or afternoon session when registering.
Enrollment fees for each two-week session are $325 for members and $350 for non-member campers attending half-day, or $425 for members and $450 for non-member campers attending full-day.

Each two-week session follows a particular theme and culminates in a sharing opportunity for friends and family.

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.
The Center’s arts education programs for children and teens inspire creativity; strengthen the family bond; and grow awareness of the arts as an essential resource in a child’s social development and academic success. Research shows that children who participate regularly in the arts improve their attention span, learn more quickly, develop higher level critical thinking skills and that play can help resiliency. They also have loads and loads of fun!
Summer Arts Camp is funded in part by The Frederick A. DeLuca Foundation, Helen Ingham Foundation, Florida Theatrical Association, and the Hollywood Police Department's Law Enforcement Trust Fund.
