Classes & Camps

For All Ages and Interests.

More than 130 classes for adults, children, and parent/child pairs are offered year-round, and more than 30 engaging summer camps for children ages 4 to 14 are offered each summer. Camps vary from week-long to 4-day to 1-day camps and run from mid-June through mid-August.

Tips for Signing Up

The schedule for summer camps publishes in February; sign-up early as space is limited! For more information about any individual class or camp, email our Classes Coordinator or call (616) 975-3147. Scholarship assistance for children and adults is available; for information, call 616-975-3184. If a class or camp is full, call (616) 975-3147 to put your name on a waiting list.
