Allens Lane Art Center's Summer Art Camp welcomes campers from all over the area, ages 5 - 12 to come and join in the fun. Our Summer Art Camp offers a unique blend of arts and athletic activities that gives each child a fun and memorable summer experience.
The camp employs sports specialists as well as professional artists and art teachers to help our campers in the numerous activities we offer. We believe that it is just as important to exercise the mind as it is the body (especially during the summer) so we make sure to take advantage of our unique campus in the middle of Fairmount Park.
Each week campers spend time in our art studios, dance studios and theater as they learn from our team of well qualified professionals as well as spend time outside enjoying our open fields, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts. Additionally, campers are taken on weekly field trips to area arts and cultural institutions as well as weekly swimming sessions (Roxborough Y).
During the fourth and eighth week of camp, campers put on a gallery exhibition in our art gallery and a performance in our theater for family and friends. It's what art camp is all about! For the parents/guardians, a newsletter is sent home each week to keep you informed of upcoming activities. We've also got our own YouTube channel that lets parents see what fun and activities our kids are up to. Campers bring their own lunch (we do not refrigerate). Snacks are provided during PM extended hours.
