Every summer, children entering grades 1–5 can experience three fun-filled weeks of inspiration and creativity at SAM. Campers will sharpen their art-making skills, unleash their imaginations, make new friends, and explore SAM’s galleries and outdoor spaces. Each week is packed with fresh and exciting activities and new experiences, so send campers to one week or all three! We guarantee they’ll expand their creativity and build great memories.
