Hands on Art

Welcome to Camp

My favorite part of camp is when I can show a child something new and help them extend their creative abilities. Hands on Art Camp is unique to other Y camps because I try and encourage them to learn new art skills to build upon what they already know. The projects we create are not your typical camp crafts. The themes will be different each week of camp and this year are as follows:

Week 4 – In the Garden                              Week 6 – Wizardry                                  Week 8  – Adventures in Art

General Schedule – AM

To accommodate more campers and provide more space for our fun and engaging activities, we have moved our camp location to the First United Methodist Church, Wesley Hall location. The Church Address is 1 East Broad St. but for drop off and pick up purposes access will be from the parking lot off of Ferris place. If using GPS please use the address 130 Ferris Pl. Westfield, NJ 07090.  If you are arriving after 9Am, please call our Camp cell number (908) 623-9280, and a camp staffer will come and escort you into camp. Please have your I.D. when signing your child in and out each day. Pick up ends at 12:00, so please plan accordingly.

What to Bring

Please dress ready to create art. Some of the materials we will use may create a mess; so please dress your child in clothes that can get a little messy. If you would like to provide an over sized T-shirt or smock, that would be helpful.

We will have a brief snack in between activities; so we ask that you pack a peanut and tree nut free snack. We are a nut free environment and we appreciate your cooperation.
