Bring the summer to life in this fun and interactive music, art, and yoga camp!
We are so excited to bring back our Creativity Camps this summer! We’ll start each day with a hello song to meet new friends and get ready for fun activities such as a singing picnic, musical follow the leader, and a rhythm circle.
We’ll follow up with art projects in which we’ll create a beautiful summery scene with plants, animals, and starry skies. After a fun dance break, it’s time to swim, boat, and fly to our yoga adventures where we’ll spot all sorts of fun summer friends. Four unique camp themes available in July and August!

9:30 – 10:10: Music
We’ll start our day with a fun hello song to meet new friends, learn each other’s names, and get singing. We’ll follow this up with parachute songs and games, musical hide and seek, a singing picnic, and even a fun game of “Sound Bingo.” The time will fly!
10:10 – 10:25: Snack time
We’ll play lively classical music and enjoy a snack on our picnic blankets. Parents, you will be asked to please send a small snack with your child to each class.**
10:25 – 11:00: Art
In our first day of camp, our talented teachers will guide your child to choose the perfect paint colors to create a beautiful ocean, sky, or grassy field. On each of the following days, we will create plants, animals, and summer adventures using many different materials and glue them onto the board to create a beautiful and fun summery scene.
11:00 – 11:05: Dance break
We’ll have a short 5 minute break before yoga to get the kids ready to move. A perfect time for a dance party!
11:05 – 11:45: Yoga
What better way to end our day than with a Yoga Adventure?! March, surf, swim and Yes!…. even ride a tractor to our yoga adventures. Once there we may meet a lion, a starfish, or maybe a glowing jellyfish or lightning bugs! Each class will end with a yoga story and yoga nap under the sparkling starry skies.
*All teachers are subject to change.
We look forward to sharing the pure joy of music, art, and creative movement with your son or daughter. Space is limited to 8 students per camp, so check your calendars and register today! (This maximum may increase slightly if we feel that we can do so safely while still adhering to all CDC guidelines and recommendations. This decision will be made in July.)
Special note to parents:
*Students must be fully potty-trained to participate in the camp. Should your child have an accident, we will contact you via phone immediately to assist.
**Please be sure to inform us prior to the first day of camp if your child has any food allergies. Our site is peanut-free, so thank you for ensuring that all snacks are safe for everyone.
