School’s out and it is time join the fun at the Playground for Young Imaginations at the Southern Ohio Museum.
The museum’s acclaimed SmARTcamp is back with a wild, wacky and wonderful creative adventure for ages 7-12 (grades 2-6) the week of Monday, June 18, through Friday, June 22, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Anchored at the museum with jaunts to nearby highlights like Shawnee State Uuniversity’s music labs and planetarium, Cirque d’Art, and other places. SmARTcamp is designed to bring young imaginations directly into play with at-hand elements of art, music, drama, and architecture all around them and, especially, to encourage their personal creative responses to it all. Real-life artists and arts professionals round out the SmARTcamp faculty each day. Space is limited to 15.
The Southern Ohio Museum also has the exciting, entertaining and educating ARTmoves circus camp available for three weeks this summer. Children can plow all their summertime energy into learning circus aerials, acrobatics, tumbling, clowning and circus theater tricks. Experienced Cirque d’Art Theatre staff guarantee a safe, supportive environment and fun, with scavenger hunts, swim days and field trips sprinkled into the mix for students 7-12 years old. Three separate one-week options: Week 1 is June 25-29; Week 2 is July 16-20; Week 3 is July 30-August 3. Camp is Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each week.
Camp costs $75 per week for each participant with a special $5 discount given to Museum members ($70). There is also a second $5 discount for siblings in the same family.
