Spend the summer with Children’s Museum of the Arts at our newest outpost at Lakeside in Prospect Park! To kick off CMA’s first Brooklyn-based program, we will be offering half day camps for children ages 5-6 over two weeks in July. The camp 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 exploring the history and wildlife of the park!
CMA’s Summer Art Colony offers over 60 camps at three locations: at CMA in Soho, on historic Governors Island, and Brooklyn’s Lakeside at Prospect Park!
Watch highlights from Summer Art Colony Camp at CMA & on Governors Island!

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 0 students enrolled, you will be notified of the cancellation 4 weeks prior to the start of the class. If a class has only 3 students and under enrolled, you will be notified of the cancellation 2 weeks prior to the start date. If CMA cancels a class that your child is enrolled in, you will have the option to switch classes within the program or receive a full refund. Please sign up early to ensure classes proceed as scheduled.
CMA requires all participating students to have a CMA Health Form on file to protect the wellness and safety of that 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or hand in the first day of class.
CMA programs are designed with a developmental age group in mind. The age restrictions noted for each class is our recommended age range, but children who are slightly older or younger are invited to join the class as long as parents/caregivers understand possible challenges. We recommend that the age variation is no more than 6 months older or younger than the stated age range.
