Fine Arts Camps  

"Art can transform lives. It gives us the power to question, to confront, to explore, and to challenge how we think about the world." -Lucy Liu

While all of our on-site fine arts camps are listed below, we hold even more fine arts camps at other Johnson County Park and Recreation District locations, including Roeland Park Community Center (ages 6-10), Mill Creek Activity Center (ages 6-12), New Century Fieldhouse (ages 6-12), and NEW!, with our partners the City of Prairie Village, Prairie Village Community Center (ages 4-7). You can read all about those here!

Summer Break

Creative and Cultural Arts Lab (Ages 5-17)

Students sitting and working on art

Spend one day, three days, or all five getting creative with us!! Work with professional artists, dancers, and actors as you explore the many opportunities presented in the cultural and creative arts.  This is your chance to test out anew art form or continue to practice one you already know.  With a daily registration option, you are encouraged to explore without the full commitment of a dedicated program.  A one week registration option is available at a discounted price.
