There’s a reason why Elmhurst Art Museum’s camps are so popular every year! Kids love getting together and making messes and our inspiring camp counselors help guide them through the creative process.

At our Summer Camps, each week’s curriculum is uniquely themed, so no two weeks are the same. Our campers also find inspiration through a variety of hands-on activities in our Education Center and outdoors in Wilder Park. Building sculpture and painting with multimedia, pottery, printmaking, and experiencing first-hand the art exhibitions at the Museum help kids develop new skills in a fun and energetic environment.

Following the guidelines provided by the CDC and local public health professionals, we have updated policies for our summer camps. Below are a few of the ways in which we are adapting to the situation:

  • Communication will be key. Staff will send out detailed updates outlining best practices prior to the start of each session
  • Drop-off/pick-up procedures will be adjusted to avoid groups in close proximity to one another.
  • While not mandated, we understand some individuals will choose to continue wearing masks and ask everyone to respect these decisions.
  • Sanitizing stations are installed throughout the studios
  • Classes will be canceled due to any potential exposure that could affect the group. Refunds will be given when classes are unable to run for this reason.
  • Students with a confirmed close contact (as defined by the CDC) will be required to get a doctor note or a negative PCR test. Refunds will not be given for missed classes for this reason.
  • To reduce the number of shared supplies, we are requesting that each student bring the following items that will be kept in an individual cubby at the museum until the end of the week.
    • glue stick, black pens (ballpoint are fine), pencil case/supply bag, eraser, No. 2 pencils, colored pencils (12-count), scissors, personal hand-sanitizer/wipes, and markers/crayons (optional)
