Summer Arts Camp - 2014

For over thirty years now the Parkside Summer Arts Camp has provided quality arts education programming for children ages 5 to 11 during their summer vacations.  We hope you will join us in 2014 as we continue our long tradition of providing high quality arts education for our youth. In order to provide the highest quality arts education for our campers, we will be partnering with Young Audiences of Western New York for an array of programming.The artists on the roster of Young Audiences of WNY are committed to their art, and using it as a tool for learning. For our 2014 program, they will lead us in dance, juggling, kite making, drawing and more! We realize this year's cost is higher than in past years but we hope that will not discourage you from participating, as we are nearly half the cost of other area programs and include instruction from highly qualified teaching artists.

At the bottom of the page we provide links to download the registration form, the Parent Pack information document and an employment application form for camp counselors.
