Due to COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, this year CORE Arts will be a week long, arts intensive, day camp, where emerging artists can realize their dreams, unleash their imagination, and discover and explore their talents, while staying safe.

Each day, campers will receive wide-ranging and intensive instruction from experienced teaching artists in a variety of art forms including dance, literary arts, music, theatre, and visual arts. Campers customize their schedule by choosing their own course of study in a five-period-per-day format. Courses offer a tremendous opportunity for individual instruction, with a teacher-student ratio of approximately 1:10. Core Arts exists to promote the creative abilities of young artists who wish to cultivate and enjoy their own artistry.
