Kate’s Camp for Kids

is a comprehensive summer arts day program that began in summer 2013 through collaboration between The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center and the Community Music School. It is focused on families seeking to nurture their children’s creative potential through the arts.

This state-licensed camp brings together professional teaching artists from Community Music School and throughout the region to the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center. Designed for boys and girls ages 5 to 10 years old, Kate’s Camp is filled with music, dance, art, and theater and each session culminates in a performance for family and friends! A diverse range of activities is offered on a rotating basis to ensure a fresh experience for even the most frequent camper.
