Poughkeepsie, NY 12601
Kids are grouped according to age into classes of 10 campers. Each group is supervised by a teacher’s assistant — often an art or education major from a local college — who takes them from lesson to lesson.
Classes include filmmaking, drawing, casting, painting, stained-glass making, set design, puppetry, drumming and much more. Each week has a theme, which acts as a springboard for different creative ideas.
Four locations: the Poughkeepsie Day School; Dutchess Day School in Millbrook; St. Paul’s Church in Red Hook; and the new River Center in Beacon.
