ART CAMP

The Arab Parks & Recreation Department offers a two-week Art Camp every summer in July that allows children to unleash their inner artist. Activities like drawing, painting, pottery and dance, among other things, allow children to use their imagination and explore their indigenous creativity. Children who will be in grades 1 – 8 in the upcoming school year (fall semester) are eligible for enrollment, and flyers will be sent home from school with your child in May. Registration begins in May. Lunch is not provided, so each child should bring a lunch from home, and a snack or snack money. We will also go to the pool and splash pad every day, weather-permitting, so be sure to send a swimsuit and towel.
