Fine Arts Camps  

"Art can transform lives. It gives us the power to question, to confront, to explore, and to challenge how we think about the world." -Lucy Liu

While all of our on-site fine arts camps are listed below, we hold even more fine arts camps at other Johnson County Park and Recreation District locations, including Roeland Park Community Center (ages 6-10), Mill Creek Activity Center (ages 6-12), New Century Fieldhouse (ages 6-12), and, with our partners the City of Prairie Village, Prairie Village Community Center (ages 4-7). You can read all about those here!
