Summer ArtCamp 2019
This is our 49th year in providing quality summer fun! For ages 6-12. Kids will be grouped by ages (maximum 15 to each group), and will rotate through 4 different art classrooms each day, spending time in art, sculpture, ceramics, and the gallery, where they will be surrounded by artwork from some of the biggest names in the children's publishing industry in our Window on the World exhibition. On Friday of each week, they will get to take home their wonderful creations!
Camp runs from 9 am to 3:30 pm. Drop off is from 8:45-9:00 am each morning, pick up is at 3:30 pm.
We offer a 10% sibling discount when siblings sign up for the same week (please call the school for this discount). Before care is 8-9 am ($15 per day, per child) and after care 3:30-5:30 pm ($25 per day, per child) is available. Each child will be given a camp t-shirt on the first day of each week and they need to bring a snack* and a lunch each day. You do not need to have a membership to sign up for summer camp.
We also need teen volunteers! Must be 14 years old or more. Please fill out the Teen Summer Volunteer Form, and email to Holly@lighthousearts.org.

Summer ArtCamp 2018
Last summer, children ages 6-12 years old enjoyed making art with clay, paint, mixed media, and - for the first time in our 48 years of summer art camp - Technology! Full STEAM Ahead at Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Art offered the whole enchilada. While ArtCampers explored their own unique creativity they made artwork to take home and engage with friends and families in the community by working together to create a monumental temporary art installation. This was a summer they’ll always remember!
Comments from 2018 Summer ArtCamp:
“My kids loved camp so much! And we came back yesterday to check out the progress on the paper world at the art museum. It was so cool to see what everyone added.”
“Thanks for a fabulous experience!”
“My 5 grandchildren attended ArtCamp and loved it so much! Thanks for making it such a wonderful experience…We look forward in seeing you again.”
“I just wanted to thank you and the staff there for making summer vacation so amazing! My daughter will return to Pennsylvania on Aug 21. She really enjoyed the kids and staff so much. Thanks again for making her time here in Tequesta so special.”
“I met three girls last week who came down from NY just for ArtCamp. They said they will be back next year.”
