DOUGHERTY Summer Camp | Kids Out and About Austin


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/31/2020
We offer arts-centric summer camps for kids: Summer Arts Adventure (for ages 5-6), Born For Art (for ages 7-9), and Made For Art (for ages 10-12). Each 2 week session of our three different camps will dive into a different theme, allowing for more in depth exploration of the topics. Every day they are with us, campers will rotate through different classes focusing on the many varied disciplines of art. This way, kids can learn, play, experiment, and create with the visual and performing arts in a supportive, creative, and structured environment. Student breaks include active play. Students should bring two healthy snacks (AM, PM), a lunch, water bottle, closed-toe shoes, and appropriate clothing.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
