Summer is on its Way!

RAC Summer Camp is just around the corner. Prepare to build, direct, create, sculpt and discover! This summer we’re offering 4 full weeks of camp (ages 6-12) and 1 half week of Toddler Art Adventures. Below you will find information about our camps, scholarships, and enrollment. We can’t wait to get creative with you!

FLY Summer Camps were made possible thanks to the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs

Draw! Write! Act! Is a week-long camp in which campers will conceive a show from top to bottom. Write a script, build the set, act out the performance! Not an actor? That’s ok! We’ll learn how to do the many necessary jobs that make a play come together. Campers will have the opportunity to try all the parts of performance making and delve deeper into the topics that spark their creativity. Paint sets, make props, design costumes; you can try it all!

Outer space aliens are coming!  We must build new communication devices to try and talk with them.  Maybe we need alien costumes to blend in and hide, in case they want to take over Earth.  Should we build a spaceship and evacuate? Let’s map out a new underground city where people can live safely until we complete our robot army to take back planet Earth!  And if they are friendly space aliens… then it’s going to be a great party!


Guest Creative: Lisa Voelker
July 22-26 9:00am-4:00pm

Ages 6-11

(before and after care available)

How do artists think? How do artists see? How do artists act? Come and learn the fascinating world of artistic behaviors – each day we’ll ask a new question about creating art! We’ll use inquiry, critical thinking, our senses, our imaginations, a range of materials, and learn about diverse techniques that artists use. You’ll learn about art history and connect this to contemporary artists working in the field today. Bring your artist hat, heart, and hands and join us for an experience of wonderful art adventures!


Guest Creative: Marisa Dluge

Ages 6-11

The whole world is your gallery, let’s fill it with art! We’ll discuss what steps are necessary to make public art like murals and installations, we’ll create a public mural at  Riverside Arts Center, and build open sculptures for the whole community to enjoy. Street art has a long history of having a style to meet everyone’s taste from activists to celebrities. Campers will explore and try traditional and edgy styles like temporary graffiti, guerilla printmaking and developing flash mobs. Let’s take it to the streets!


Drop-off at 8:30 am

Pick-up at 5:00 pm

$50/child for the week
