Riverside’s Summer Camp 2024

Art Explorers:

Around the World and Back Again.

Art is all around us! We can find art as close as our backyard and as far away as our imaginations can take us. Over six weeks your art explorer will traverse different and amazing worlds of art, from work Made in the Mitten to around the globe with Far Away, to imagined words In Your Wildest Dreams. Explorers will also jump in their time machines to explore art from Long Ago, art made Here and Now and the future of art with Someday Soon. For art explorers ages 6 to 13.

Sign up begins February 15th

Camp runs Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm daily

Past Summer Camps


Our First week of camp we wrote, played, performed and directed our very own original show!


Ypsilanti was invaded: By the coolest bunch of alien artist in the universe!


Graffiti, flash mobs and public art! We explored how we can take our creativity to the streets!


Our First week of camp was full of building, designing and creating sculpture of all shapes and sizes!


Summer’s the perfect time to learn about the natural world around us!


This summer we explored the worlds between art, performance, and games!


“My full throttle, super energetic boys really loved their first week at camp last week and were totally looking forward to their return today for their second week of camp.  Thank you!  Y’all understood that the boys have unquenchable curiosity and you endured their many questions and expectations.  Perhaps best of all, they now LOVE rocks and can recite a lecture worth of information to all of us about the differences from one type of mineral to another and how rocks are made and on and on.  We went for a 2 mile hike together looking at nature and rocks this weekend because of the RAC camp and it was one of the best days of my whole motherhood.  Thank you for this ultimate gift.  You’re rockin’ it!”

“I just wanted to personally thank you so much for giving my son such an amazing opportunity. He absolutely loved camp last week and he loved Trevor. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him so happy!” 


Father of Camper

“I want to thank you for a wonderful week of camp!! My son loved it! He didn’t want it to end. I will be looking Into FLY at YIES for the upcoming school year. He said the favorite part of camp was going to Rock Island and getting rocks and building the fort.  You guys included everything he needed. Art, science, educational, exercise and fun. All of these things make his week memorable.Thank you again for the scholarship so he could be a part of this week at camp! We will be watching for camp info next summer!”
