Back by popular demand: another three-day camp at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts! Campers ages 5-10 are invited to celebrate Presidents’ Week with loads of fun through music, arts and crafts, baking and American history. Our instructors will present a different theme every day, with lots of hands-on activities designed to let creativity shine! Campers should bring their own labeled lunch and water bottle. Refrigeration provided.

Tuesday, February 16: Red, White & Blue
Dress in red, white and blue and come join the fun! Campers will take part in red, white and blue-themed arts and crafts and activities, from painting to baking cookies. Campers will use red, white and blue (and any colors they like) to decorate their own unique mannequin head (yes - mannequin head) they can bring home. They’ll also learn to sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” after hearing its history.

Wednesday, February 17: You’re a Grand Old Flag
Come celebrate the American flag in all of her glory! “Flag fun” will dominate hands-on activities as campers use their imaginations while learning about Betsy Ross and the history of the American flag. Campers will make their own flags and even decorate a flag cake. Patriotic dancing and music will also take center stage as campers learn to perform “You’re a Grand Old Flag” by the end of the day.

This day’s activities are all about first families through history. The day will include a fun look at first ladies’ fashion, a taste of favorite presidential snacks and an opportunity for campers to make their very own Lincoln hat. Children will also learn about and paint America’s most popular first pets. Did you know they sell first family magnets in the White House Gift Shop? Well, campers will make their very own magnets they can take home.
