Summer Art Camps for Philly Area Kids

Summer will be here before we know it, and many parents are starting to think about camps. If you have a budding artist in your family, there is no shortage of camp options available in the Philadelphia area. From museums and neighborhood art leagues to paint-your-own ceramic studios, we have assembled a list to fit all levels of artistic ability.

Due to COVID-19, camp venues are putting extra safety precautions into place such as mask wearing and social distancing. Be sure to check directly with the camp for its particular guidelines. Camps are also filling up quickly since capacity restrictions are in place at some locations. Read on for our ideas and get your children registered for a new art experience.

Be sure to browse our camp directory for horseback riding, STEM, and sports camps.
