Columbia Museum of Art Summer Camp

This summer, the CMA is offering a variety of unique camps to capture the interest of any young artist. Having your child participate in summer camps is a great way for them to think creatively, practice problem-solving skills, and have fun!

Summer camps are happening!

The safety of campers, staff, and volunteers is always the highest priority. For this reason, camps will not be held in June, and the minimum age will now be 7 years old. We’re also making some changes like limiting the number of students per camp and increasing cleaning procedures. With these efforts, we look forward to an exciting summer! Learn more.
