Our free Camp program offers children an exciting and educational arts program for the week, including free play, art lessons, student-led activities and field trips. Help us prepare program materials, assist children and youth with their art activities, provide support to children and youth who need one-on-one support and work with our team to supervise field trips and excursions.

We also have need for ongoing volunteers to help support our programs in a variety of ways, including helping artists to set up or clean up, assisting kids and youth who need one-on-one support, or helping prepare nutritious and delicious snacks.
