General Information
Atlantic Center for the Arts’ Summer Art Camp is held at ACA Harris House and Yurick Studios in downtown New Smyrna Beach. Each weekly session gives kids an opportunity to explore ideas of art and culture through hands-on experience with a variety of art forms. There is downtime for snacks, stretching, games, and lunch. Participants will meet new friends and take home artwork every week. The ACA Young Masters online gallery will feature downloadable images of top-rated artwork made in the first 6 sessions of camp, which can be shared with family and friends. We will be limiting the size of our classes to 8 students in each rotation a total of 24 campers per week. All safety protocols will be in place. Mask are required for campers and teachers. Camp administrator, Ms. Peggy is looking forward to a great summer!

Children must be between 6 years old (or have completed kindergarten) and 12 years old.

Registration & Payment
Registration is on a first come, first served basis. A $30 non-refundable deposit is required to register. Full payment of tuition is due before the first day of the session for which your child is registered.

Wait List
If a session reaches 24 participants (due to COVID-19, ACA will create a wait list. Wait listed families will be contacted up to 5 PM on the Monday of each session, if space opens.

Financial aid is available for students in need of assistance. Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis, for as long as funds are available. All recipients of financial aid are required to pay the $20 deposit to register. Full scholarships are only awarded in cases of extreme hardship. Parents/Grandparents who are willing and able to volunteer for their child’s session will receive one half-scholarship for that session, based on availability.

The camp fee covers the cost of all materials. Occasionally, instructors may ask children to bring in special items for a project such as copies of family photos or blank CDs.

Disabilities Policy
It is ACA’s sincere wish that our programs be open and accessible to all participants, regardless of ability. ACA is open to enrollment of camp participations with disabilities on a trial basis. This is done with the understanding that some participants may require the presence and assistance of a parent or guardian to provide additional assistance. If at any time ACA staff feels that the participant is experiencing ongoing challenges or difficulties in the camp environment that have a disruptive effect on the group, ACA reserves the right to ask that participation be discontinued.

Gift Certificates
Gift Certificates must be paid in full, for the full tuition amount ($105 ACA members/$130 nonmembers). Member status refers to the purchaser of the Gift Certificate (not the recipient) at the time of purchase. One Gift Certificate = one child, one session.
