Summer Arts Camps

I hate camping, but I love summer camp.

Instilling an appreciation in the arts with our youth is an important part of our mission and what better way to do that than through an immersive arts experience in a camp setting. Every summer, Hilliard Arts Council provides several camp experiences in a week long day camp format each organized around a particular arts theme for youth grades 1 through 8. Currently there are camps in drama, visual arts and improvisation.

All camps are professionally directed and staffed by experienced camp counselors with a small staff to camper ratio providing a highly personalized experience for all campers. We are especially delighted to partner with The Nest Theatre, regarded as the first training center in central Ohio for longform improvisation for our Improv camp. Each camp culminates in some sort of exhibition or performance to show off what was learned.

For more details on specific camps and registration information please see the registration links within the event. Registration typically becomes available in the spring for these June and July based camps.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 we continue to ensure as best we can the safety of our campers and staff. We will be in compliance with all guidelines issued by public health authorities. Vaccines will be required for all staff and campers. See our current COVID safety statement for more information.
