Summer Art Camp Registration Now Open
Wooster, OH – Wayne Center for the Arts (WCA) is presenting another art-filled line-up of
summer camps for children of all ages! A total of 8 unique summer camps will be offered
throughout June, July, and into August to keep kids busy this summer while school is out. All
camps are designed to expand a child’s creativity, explore a variety of artistic mediums, and let
kids have fun while learning!
The first camp, to be held June 5-9, is the Junior Music Makers Camp (ages 8-12). A new
addition to WCA’s schedule taught by James Buckey, the camp will allow kids to make,
decorate, and play their own instruments while learning about different musical cultures and
backgrounds. “This is for kids of any skill level. No musical background is necessary,” says
Buckey. “All that’s required is a desire to have fun!”
In addition to the new music camp, a new 2-week Musical Theatre Camp will be led by Brittany
Eckstrom, WCA’s Dance Coordinator. Students will learn the basics of signing, dancing, and
acting. Musical Theatre Camp is for ages 7 and up and will feature a final performance at the
end of the two weeks.
In addition to the new camps, favorite camps will return with new themes and projects to
complete. Preschool Camp (ages 3-6) will focus on “Wild Things” so that kids can dip their
claws in paint, unleash their inner beast in the dance studio, and bang on bongos! Clay Daze
(ages 8-12) is a weeklong exploration of clay and lets kids explore several different clay building
Magical Theatre Company will return to present “So, You Wanna Be and Actor” for ages 8-14. A
dual camp led by Adam McVicker and Darcy Haynes will take students on a Fantastic Voyage:
Clay and Visual Art Camp. “Campers will rotate between clay projects and visual arts projects
as they explore different daily themes,” describes Haynes. “This camp has something for
everyone and is great for any skill level.” The Fantastic Voyage: Clay and Visual Art Camp will
be held July 10-14 and divides students into appropriate age groups (ages 6-9 and ages 10-13).
Finally, in July and August, the classic “Arts Sampler” returns. This allows campers to
experience all that the Arts Center has to offer including drawing, painting, music, clay, and
more! The season will wrap up with a Dino Skeleton STEAM Camp for ages 10-15 on August
7-11. The camp is led by Rhett Martin who actively works in Hollywood on movie props and
sets. Throughout the week, campers will work to uncover, mold, and cast fossils and then work
together to assemble a model dinosaur skeleton.
