West Side Y Arts Camp is an experiential summer of fun for ages 5.5 - 12.  Arts Camp is a vibrant community-building experience in which campers explore their own creative expression in a safe and supportive environment.  Children are grouped by age and together they take 5 classes each in DANCE, DRAMA, MUSIC, and VISUAL ARTS per 2-week session.  That adds up to 20 hours of arts instruction every 2 weeks!

The summer is divided into four two-week sessions, each with its own organizing theme.  Campers learn different styles and techniques in all 4 art forms all summer long with a focus on foundational skill building, development of original  material, rehearsal, and performance.  On Thursdays at 4 PM of weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8, each group performs in an informal showcase for family and friends in the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater.  Throughout the summer in all 4 art forms, students explore age-appropriate curriculum that celebrates the dance, theater, music, and visual art as it relates to the summer's over-arching program theme.  In addition to arts classes, all campers swim twice a week, go on arts-related field trips around NYC, and, weather permitting, enjoy Central Park for lunch, fresh air, yoga, and team-building creative activities.For more information about Arts Camp please call the Amanda Selwyn, Community Arts Director at 212-912-2635.
