Summer Art Camp at the First Night Monterey Art Studio

A Creative Exploration! Imagine, Create, Discover!

Archer Park Community Center
542 Archer Street, Monterey

Children of all ages love the chance to be creative, and First Night Monterey's Summer Day Camps use arts as a catalyst to nurture creativity and enhance skills in a non-competitive, safe, fun environment. No prior experience or talent needed. There is a lot of fun and learning with age-appropriate mentoring as your children create in a real studio environment and have the opportunity to paint, draw and make with a variety of materials. Each Friday features a gallery exhibit of their work completed during the camp week.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and are following the recommendations of the Monterey Health Department, the CDC, and the American Pediatrics Association to help slow the spread of Coronavirus. Class size will be limited.

Anti-Bullying Policy The physical and emotional safety of our campers and staff are central to First Night's Day Camps and vital to its overall mission. As such, we take the issues of bullying, harassment, and violence very seriously. Bullying is generally defined as when one or more people maliciously exclude, tease, taunt, gossip, hit, kick, or put down another. First Night's leadership investigates any and all allegations of bullying, and trains camp supervisors to promote positive communication, so that campers can feel comfortable voicing their concerns to staff. By working together as a team to identify and manage bullying, we can help ensure that every camper has a great experience here at First Night Monterey’s Day Camps.
