We are proud to present camp sessions for youth ages 6–14 in a range of artistic disciplines. In a supportive environment, your child will embark on a life-changing artistic exploration as they learn to flex their creative muscles, make new friends, and discover unique ways of expressing themselves—all within the natural scenery and fresh air of our beautiful 175-acre grounds.


If you register for Summer Camp, you will receive an email on the Wednesday or Thursday the week prior to your camp session containing information about check-in, timing, and other details.


What to know before registering:

  • You must register for camps online and fill out the documentation as part of the registration process. We cannot fill this information out over the phone for you. If you have questions as you go through the process, you can contact our Box Office at 408-961-5858 10am–4pm M–F to assist you.
  • Camp prices differ for each camp, depending on content, length, and materials. Sessions range from $650 for some one-week sessions, up to $2,800 for our 4-week session. All necessary materials for camp are included in the registration cost. If you have an economic hardship, see below for scholarship information.
  • Age designations for camps can accommodate older students but will feature a curriculum targeted towards an audience of the listed age.
  • All camps are 9am–4pm, Monday–Friday (except where indicated).

  • Campers must be of the minimum age specified prior to the date of the camp. If a camper is found to be underage, they will be removed from camp and no refund will be given.
