Annmarie Plans Summer Day Camps
Summers are full of creativity, discovery, and growth for children at Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Art Center. Registration is now open for summer day camps — weeklong, full-day camps from 9 am to 3 pm and half-day camps from 9:30 to 11:30 am and 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Children ages 4 to 18 can enjoy a summer that’s active, fun, and stimulating.
The summer day camps will be held from June 19 through Aug. 25, 2017, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 3:30 pm, with an extended day option available from 3 to 4:30 pm. Camp offerings, descriptions, and a full schedule can be found at the website linked to above.
The unique setting of Annmarie allows children to unleash their imagination and energy in a wide variety of camp experiences. Campers have the opportunity to discover the natural world, learn from working artists, explore, and create original works of their own. And at the same time, make new friends.
“Every summer, we welcome children to connect with art and nature through our summer camps,” said Jaimie Jeffrey, program director at Annmarie Garden. “This summer, we are thrilled to add some new and exciting camp sessions along with tried and true favorites.”
New listings added to the summer day camps schedule include Art Safari, Green Thumb Gang, Colossal Cardboard Challenge, Savvy Sculptors, Time Travelers, Smart Phone Art, and Steampunk Art. Families can choose from the entire catalog of 33 sessions.
All sessions include hands-on art-making, exploration, and fun. Annmarie summer camps are certified by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
