Summer Camp 2014

Recreate yourself this summer at the Hunter Museum!

The Hunter Museum is offering nine unique camps this summer for children ages 4-12 (children must be potty trained and age listed on the first day of camp). Each summer, talented art instructors design new activities and experiences in the arts for your camper. Camps incorporate art making, physical activity, field trips to local parks and attractions and visits by local artists. Each week of camp closes with an Art Exhibition where campers share their hard work and creativity with family and friends.

All supplies and snacks (one snack for half-day sessions and two for a full-day session) are included in the camp cost. Camp t-shirts are also included. Packed lunches are required. 

Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly suggested. Your child is not enrolled in camp until you receive a confirmation email from rveal@huntermuseum.org.

Register online by clicking on the session titles below, or contact Rachel Veal, Studio Programs Coordinator, at (423) 752-2051 for more information or to register by phone.*

This fund was created in memory of Molly Pryor, volunteer and colleague at the Hunter Museum. For more information about this opportunity and to apply, click here.
