Come explore your creative side! Campers will have the opportunity to participate in educational and exciting hands-on art activities in the museum’s classrooms and galleries. Tuition includes all materials in order to create their own masterpieces. All themed sessions are taught by professional artists or licensed art educators!


CMA Summer Camp is for students ages 6-14. The Camp will be divided by the amount of students registered and age groups (usually ranging from ages 6-10, 11-14).


Each camp runs for 5 days. Students registering for a “Full Day” are required to pack a lunch every day to eat during the supervised break, with social distancing outside or inside. Small bags are allowed for lunches and other necessary items. 

 

New Health & Safety Guidelines
There are many changes we will be implementing based on current health and safety guidelines for camps. The Museum is following guidelines from the Ohio Governor's Office and Ohio Department of Health (Responsible RestartOhio Museum Sector Reopen Guidelines), CDC, the American Alliance of Museums, and best practices set forth by museum directors across the state and country amid COVID-19. Some of the changes we will be making include:

  • All CMA staff members and Campers will be required to wear a face mask. Single use masks are available at the Museum.

  • Decreased camp size to only 10 students per instructor.

  • Spaced out, 6 ft. individual seating and kid friendly social distancing training for campers.

  • Art materials and tool kits made for each individual student to prevent cross contamination whenever possible.

  • Increased cleaning schedules and hand washing procedures throughout the day. 

  • Classrooms will be deep cleaned after each use.

  • Review further guidelines from the Ohio Department of Health – Consumer, Retail, Services, and Entertainment and OH – Day Camps.
