CAC Summer Arts Camp 2017 aims to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creativity of campers through the powerful combination of books and art. Each week campers explore a different story that teaches them to appreciate themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Through music, visual arts, theater, culinary arts, and dance, campers expand their palates, giving voice to individual expression, culminating in a weekly Friday showcase that is open to family and friends.
