Summer Camps Schedule
July 5th—8th: Performing Arts
Do you love drama, magic, and enchantment? Then this is the week for you! Young wizards and fairies are most encouraged in joining us to perform a fairy tale where they will create their own set and costumes. Practice tricks to astound with magic and dazzle with circus and acrobatic feats. Whether it’s in the spotlight or behind the scenes, kids will love the wonderful fun they create together during our Performing Arts Week.

Let’s get messy! Come make something all your own in a week of building and creating! Learn basic wood working skills, make art and marble race tracks through recycled materials, and create your own DIY project. Work with natural clay to create miniature bowls, pots, and sculptures. Build different forts, hide-outs and homes. Use all your new skills and wrap up the week with field trip to help build and create on a real working farm!
July 18th – 22nd: Outdoor Adventures
Young adventurers, gather your tools and let’s explore the great outdoors of Bend! Pilot Butte, Shevlin Park and the Deschutes River are calling your name. Search for different tracks of animals, species of trees, and identify plants, flowers and insects. Create natural public art to beautify our local surroundings along with unique pieces to take home.
