Kids Create is a multi-discipline creative arts camp where children develop their imaginations and skills through drawing, painting, collage, movement, music, improvisational theater, creative dramatics, and playwriting. Kids Create classes are taught by professional teaching artists from Rutgers Community Arts, each with experience in remote instruction. Campers have a blast rotating through activities in Music, Creative Movement, Visual Arts, and Theater. Each week’s offerings are unique, so campers are able to participate in one or all weeks, as the camp’s content will always be fresh and engaging. At the end of each week, we invite family and friends to a virtual showcase where we’ll celebrate the awesome artwork and performances from our campers! No prior art experience required. We look forward to creating with you!

Sibling discounts available. Contact summer@mgsa.rutgers.edu before registering for more information.
