WHO MAY ATTEND
Boys and girls ages 7-11. We do offer a Teen Camp Program for campers ages 11-15 as well. Please click on the Teen Camp page to check out details on that program. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, national origin, ethnic origin or disability. Parents are expected to evaluate their child prior to enrollment. They should be ready to be at camp for a full day with no parent contact. Parents should think carefully before enrolling a child who has had limited time away from home or is not excited about attending because there are NO refunds after June 1st.
OUR STAFF
The heart of our program is our staff, made up of Enrichment specialists, Bachelor of Arts graduates, Le Cordon Bleu chefs, and performing arts professionals with years of experience working with children. The passion and expertise they bring to each workshop will spark your child’s creativity and enthusiasm. Our staff is dedicated to creating a fun, educational, and exciting summer experience for your child.
OUR FACILITIES
Our Valley Village campus is located at 12326 Riverside Drive and serves families across the valley. It is centrally located north of Studio City and west of North Hollywood on the Temple Beth Hillel* grounds.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE
Children should arrive between 8:15 and 8:45 am each morning and must be picked up between 3:30 pm - 4:00pm unless they are joining us for our extended care program. Parents who need to pick up their child earlier should notify our office in advance. A map detailing drop off & pick up locations will be emailed to you with your confirmation of registration.
THE "LITTLE CHEESE"
Everyday at camp, during our All-Camp morning meetings, the Big Cheese draws a campers name out of a jar. This camper, if he or she wants to, gets to be the "Little Cheese" for the day and helps the "Big Cheese" with special camp duties.
Of course the "Little Cheese" also gets a special necklace to keep as a reminder of his or hers special day at camp!
LUNCH & SNACK
All children must bring their own snacks and lunch in a sealed lunch container. NO paper or plastic bags. We will provide a cold drink during lunchtime. Please note that we do not provide refrigeration except for medications, so lunches should not contain perishables.
Parent's due to many serious allergies, The Art Camp is a "nut-free" camp. Please do NOT pack nuts/peanut butter/nut products in your child's lunch. Thanks!

DRESS
Comfortable clothing is recommended during our summer program. Children should wear tennis shoes rather than open toe sandals if they are participating in fencing, karate, cooking, woodworking* or any of the dance workshops. Remember, clothes may get ruined from paints and inks. Art Academy t-shirts are available for $14.00 each. You may order on the application or anytime during camp sessions.

*Note: Children with open toe sandals or shoes will not be allowed into the woodworking studio, no exceptions.
EXTENDED CARE
Our summer program hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 am-3:30 pm. Extended care starts at 4:00 pm and ends at 6:00pm. As a convenience for working parents, children may be dropped off at 8:15 am (no earlier) with no extra charge. Should you wish to leave your child with us after 4:00pm, the cost of this service is outlined in the tuition calculation section on your application and is payable in advance. If you plan to use this service only on a "drop-in" basis you do not need to register now. However, payment for "drop -in" extended care is $10.00 per hour, due at the time you pick up your child. No exceptions. To register for this service, please complete the appropriate spot on the tuition calculation section of your application.


END OF SESSION PRESENTATION
Each session will end with a wonderful Performance Day when family and friends can visit the campus and catch camp performances from all our music, drama, fencing, magic and dance workshops. Invitations will be sent home during each camp session. Click campus FLIPAGRAM to see all the fun we had last summer!
