Creative Expression

Brushing Up

Campers can stretch imaginations, implement artistic scrutiny, and explore their talent! Creativity and ingenuity take center stage within our dynamic arts programs. Passionate instructors teach and motivate budding inventors and engineers. Grammy’s Gallery is home to the Coleman Country art, ceramics, and woodworking studios. Activities often spill over to Poppy’s Pavilion, a covered, open-air spot where resourcefulness rockets (right along with rocket-building!). JP’s Porch is a covered ramada with a string of air-conditioned buildings, housing dance, cooking, and music.

During Club and Selective periods, campers entering second grade and above who wish to specialize in creative or performing arts can choose among these picks.
