Spend the summer with Children’s Museum of the Arts at our new outpost at Lakeside in Prospect Park! To kick off CMA’s second season of Brooklyn-based programming, we will be offering half-day camps for children ages 5-6 over two weeks in July. Camps will be held at the LeFrak Center by Lakeside in the southeast corner of Prospect Park. Children will complete outdoor-motivated art projects as well as explore the history and wildlife of the park!

Refund Policy

CMA is not responsible for providing make-up classes or issuing refunds for programs missed as a result of illness, emergencies, or other events beyond our control. If you would like to cancel your enrollment in a class, CMA will provide you with a full refund minus a $75 registration fee up to two weeks prior to the start of class.  Within two weeks of the start of the class, CMA will provide you with a full refund minus the $75 registration fee only if CMA is able to fill your child’s place in the class. If CMA is unable to fill the place in the class, the class will be non-refundable.


CMA reserves the right to cancel any class due to low enrollment. If a class has three or less students enrolled, you will be notified of the cancellation two weeks prior to the camp start date, and be given the option to switch classes within the program or receive a full refund. Please sign up early to ensure all classes proceed as scheduled!

Health Forms

CMA requires all participating students to have a CMA Health Form on file to protect the wellness and safety of the child and their classmates. The first page must be completed and signed by a parent or caregiver. General health records may be attached in place of the second page.

CMA Health Forms are good for one year. Please submit all health forms to or bring in-person on the first day of class.

Age Restrictions

CMA programs are designed with a developmental age group in mind. The age restrictions noted for each class is a recommended age range, but children who are slightly older or younger are invited to join the class as long as parents and caregivers understand possible challenges. We recommend that the age variation is no more than 6 months older or younger than the stated age range.

Class Switches

If a child wants to switch classes, CMA can accommodate as long as space is available. Please email to check availabilities.
