HOW IT WORKS

A camp session consists of two immersive weeks of the best summer arts camp in southwest Florida.

Mornings are for exploring! Campers will discover their passions through an eclectic mix of activities like storytelling, stage combat, sketching and collage projects following the session theme. In the afternoon, campers will dive deeper into a world of performance or visual arts.

For campers with an interest in theatre and performance, we recommend registering for performing arts focus sessions so they can get to know the performing arts from onstage and backstage perspectives.

For campers seeking a visual arts experience, we recommend registering for the visual arts focus session for a unique immersion in various projects from sculpture to fine arts and mixed media to photography.

OR mix and match sessions for a summer splash of all the arts.

Register for Visual Art Focus OR Performing Arts Focus, not both in the same session.

The price for each two-week session is $420 for Alliance members or $504 for non-members. You may become a member to receive the discounted pricing. Camp registration pricing includes a supply fee so that each camper has their own materials for the entirety of the session.

Campers in the visual arts track will receive a take-home portfolio of their artwork at the end of the session. Final performances of campers in the performing arts track will be recorded and an access link to view the show will be sent to parents at the end of the session.

Please be sure to read full camp details and Covid-19 protocol. Spots are limited to keep campers responsibly distanced, so enroll early.

Grades: 1-7 • Time: Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended care available from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. for a fee.

We award a number of full and partial scholarships every year, based on need and availability of funds. Click here to apply.
