Morning and Afternoon camps to choose from.
Camps for ages 6 - 7 and 8 - 9.

production camp!

From Theater to Newsrooms to YouTube - come explore SPARK while learning about different ways of creating and sharing stories. This camp is fun for all ages, but focused on differentiating skills to kids ages 6-9.


Each day we will get to learn from experts in the field while having fun, creating something new, and developing communication skills.


Work with real news anchors to learn how to do interviews, weather updates, and breaking news reports. See theatre in action and learn what goes on behind the scenes to bring a story to life! Get behind and in front of a camera as we tour the exciting exhibits at SPARK all while learning how to vlog about shared interests. We will learn different skills needed to put together a show with a culminating showcase on Friday to show our adults what we’ve learned over the week!

Participant Behavior
We place a high value on creating a fun and engaging learning environment for ALL of our campers. If behavior issues occur, instructors will redirect the camper to the best of their ability. If their behavior continues, the camper will be removed from class and parents will be called. Education staff, parents, and camper will work together to create a behavior plan so the camper can return to planned activities. If these are not met, camper may be sent home for the day. If at any time the safety of our staff, instructors, campers, or property is at risk, the camper will be removed from class immediately, sent home and possibly unable to return to camp. Refunds will not be issued if your child is sent home and/or unable to return to camp.

NOTE: Because of our 6:1 camper to staff ratio, we are not able to provide the kind of one-on-one support that some students receive at school. If your child would benefit from this type of support, we are happy to have your child’s PCAs or other adult helpers join them at camp. To arrange specific accommodations, it’s best to contact us ahead of time so that we can work together to ensure a successful camp experience.

By clicking the "Register" button you will be able to register your child for the desired camp. 

After registering your child you will receive a confirmation email containing an additional Registration Information form link. We ask that you complete this form immediately after registering.
