In partnership with Arts in Education of the Gorge, this summer Columbia Center for the Arts (CCA) is providing both visual arts and theatre summer camps for youth ages 4-18 to engage and empower them in the creative process where young people will explore their natural creative gifts and learn new techniques to build confidence and skills. We will have both in-person and on-line camps!
All supplies are provided, some scholarships are provided to support maximum engagement! Please bring your own snacks.

We are limiting our class sizes to 10 students, where our teaching artists will give an amazing experience to the youth who can participate, we will do everything we can to keep everyone healthy. We do plan to keep kids at least 6′ apart, and have measured out our spaces to practice safety, and each participant will have a private container for their materials. If youth or family are showing any signs of illness we will ask them to stay home. We will take the temperature of participants at the beginning of class and encourage masks. We also ask participants to bring their own snacks for safety and health precautions. Thanks for understanding and working with us to keep everyone safe and healthy!
