Basic Information

Firstlight Summer Camps are so popular they have completely filled up the last few years. We took the focus of a small art class and combined it with the fun of camp activities. It’s become a real favorite in our community!

Schedule: 9 AM until 1:00 PM. Art Camps are Three hours, but campers can now stay for FOUR hours, beginning at 9 AM and staying until 1 PM. Camp art activities end at Noon. Then campers open their sack lunch they’ve brought from home, and enjoy an hour of extra fun with classic cartoons and games. Campers may choose to stay even longer, until 3:30 PM – by joining the $30 afternoon Summer Art Buffet (as long as there are open spots left). You can also combine the afternoon art buffet with your camp all week in a discounted package (prices below).

Coming & Going: Morning drop off is not available before 8:45 am without special request/payment. Please CALL us. Pick up can be anytime from noon to 1 pm.

The Word Is Out!

We add camps every year due to overwhelming demand but they keep filling up. Make your reservation early to avoid disappointment, and check out our brand-new camps in addition to our favorites.

Camp Discount: Use the discount code: BIRD2020 to get 10% off at checkout on or before April 10.
