Spark Creativity this Summer

2023 Summer Art Camps

Register before March 15th for $20 OFF per student!

Summer Art Camps on the Terrace at Hunterdon Art Museum are where kids ages 5-15 ignite their creativity, learn new skills, explore their passions, and connect with others. This year we are excited to also be offering some options for toddlers!

We offer a range of camps for all interests – from sculpture and drawing to acting and anime – led by instructors who are experts in their craft. Camps are 1 week long in either the morning or afternoon. We also offer a supervised lunch.

Camp will once again be held outdoors on our terrace, with some time spent indoors in our studios.

New sessions are being added daily. Join our email list to stay up-to-date on the latest camp offerings!
