Joslyn Summer Camps!
 

Spend the summer making art! Campers will get inspiration from artworks in the galleries and gardens, and create works of their own in the studio. Camps for children age four through twelve are held at Joslyn; teen camps are held at Creighton University.

Options for full- or half-days are available; snack provided. Full-day campers are asked to bring a sack lunch for a supervised Lunch Bunch.

Art Start Early Care is no longer available.
