We have a lot in store this summer with our new partnership with Stage Door Theatre and the addition of Performance Art Camps. By working together, we’re able to provide greater access to the arts for hundreds of young people ages 3 – 18.
Summer Camp starts on May 23 and runs through August 5. Camps meet Monday through Friday (except for Memorial Day and July 4th) from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Every Friday, the young artists will exhibit their work for parents in the Spruill Hallway Gallery in an Art Show at 2:30 p.m.
Carpool drop-off is from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and pick-up is 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Before-care and after-care services are available for an additional fee:
- 1(day) $10.00
- 4(day week) $30.00
- 5(day week) $37.00
- 1(day) $20.00
- 4(day week) $58.00

Spruill Visual Arts offerings are organized by age group. Instructors introduce new skills and help develop existing skills at a level appropriate for each student. This makes it possible for youth with little experience to work alongside those with more advanced skills.

SAM GOES TO SUMMER CAMP!
Sam is a typical, lively 7-year old artist who loves to use their imagination and doesn’t mind getting messy for the sake of expressing themselves in a BIG way! Does this sound like your little Picasso? Spruill’s ARTS CAMPS for Ages 5 – 10 were created just for curious kids like Sam. These camps take a deep-dive into a Theme of the Week by utilizing various teachers to guide campers through unique aspects of the theme-based exploration.
To give you an idea, let’s take a look at Sam’s Day at Summer Camp.
Between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., Sam arrives at Spruill with their bag packed with essentials for the day, like a sack lunch and filled water bottle. They’re wearing clothing that they know will get a little messy from the upcoming art adventures.
A friendly Spruill volunteer walks Sam to their home room. Every morning they start their day in this assigned room, where they meet their first teacher and all their new friends in the same age group. They prepare for the day by putting away bags and personal belongings and then getting to know one another.
At 9:45, Sam’s homeroom teacher introduces the Theme of the Week, and presents a unique aspect of it through projects designed to inspire their creative minds. Sam and all their friends spend the next hour learning amazing facts, creating art, and having a whole lot of fun!
Every hour, Sam and friends move together to a new classroom with a new instructor, who introduces another aspect of the week’s theme as they dive into their art-filled journey.
By the end of the day, Sam and friends have met four teachers who have introduced four projects that cover different elements of the Theme of the Week.
At a scheduled time, Sam and friends take lunch in an assigned classroom and will take breaks with an activities counselor either outdoors or indoors, depending on the weather.
At 3 p.m., camp ends for the day, and parents drive through the carpool line to pick up their children until 3:30 p.m.
Each day, Sam and their new friends follow this same schedule and by Friday, all the Spruill Summer Camp artists will be ready to exhibit their masterpieces in the weekly Art Show in the Spruill Hallway Gallery at 2:30 p.m.
- Studio Arts Camps (ages 11-14)
