All-Day Art Camps Led by Professional Teaching Artists!
Spend the summer with Children’s Museum of the Arts at the museum on 103 Charlton Street in SoHo! CMA’s week-long summer camps run from June through September, with offerings for children and teens. Our technique-based classes are led by CMA’s team of professional Teaching Artists who design each curriculum off their own artistic practices and expertise. Your child can have the unique opportunity to learn comic book design from illustrators, animation from filmmakers, screen printing from textile artists, and more! Sign up your young creator for as many weeks as you wish.
Classes run from 10 AM – 4 PM. CMA also provides campers with an optional, supervised free time from 9 AM – 10A M and 4 PM – 5 PM. Campers can choose between board games, group games, free arts making, reading, or time in the Swirl Studio.
CMA’s Summer Art Colony offers over 60 camps at three locations: at CMA in SoHo, on historic Governors Island, and at Brooklyn’s Lakeside in Prospect Park.
CMA also offers a limited number of scholarships for Summer Art Colony. Learn more here
All campers must check in at the front desk between 9AM - 10AM and be escorted by caregivers to their classroom to drop off lunches and backpacks. A refrigerator is available for storing lunch. Campers will have one hour of open art activities before class begins.
Class runs from 10AM – 4PM. Classes take a one hour lunch break at 12 PM, with supervised outdoor play at a local playground (weather permitting). Campers must bring lunch, snacks, a water bottle, hat, and sunscreen.
Caregivers check in at the front desk before picking up and signing out campers in their classrooms. Campers will have one hour of open art activities after class ends.
Caregivers picking up campers after 5pm will be subject to a $25 late pickup fee.
Interested in dropping off before 9AM or picking up after 5PM? CMA offers early drop off and late pick-up options for an additional fee. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
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!
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 email@example.com or bring in-person on the first day of class.
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.
