Summer 2020 Camps and Classes

Summer Adventure Camps and Classes for Children through Teens!

Exciting camps and classes for children, teens, and adults in our program areas including all styles of dance, music, martial arts, fine arts, acting, modeling and more.  During Summer Session 2020, classes will also be available in the afternoons and evenings at all skill levels.

AGES 6 - 11 / June 1-5  / 9a-12p

Our Fine Arts Camp is a half day camp (daily 9am until Noon). Campers will enjoy learning new art techniques and improve their artistic skills in a variety of areas including drawing, sketching, painting, sculpting, and much more. During the camp week students will be completing an art portfolio of drawing lessons for still life, landscapes, perspective, shading and texture techniques. We also sculpt in clay, build with papier maché and découpáge, and create mosiac pieces of art. All art supplies needed for the camp are included in the camp fee.
Camp Fees: $130

Learning to fence!

AGES 9-16 / June 8-12 / 9a-3p

This Summer - do something COMPLETELY different - LEARN TO FENCE!

Our En Garde! Learn to Fence camp offers males/females, ages 9-16, the chance to learn the ancient/modern sport of Fencing with professional fencing coach Tom Knowles.
Students will learn the basics of handling all three weapons - the foil, epee, and saber. The history of the sport, proper terminology, and basic tournament rules will be taught. Through daily conditioning (both fencing specific and non-fencing specific), campers will improve their physical strength, stamina, as well as their ability to focus, think dynamically, and execute with control and confidence. 

In addition to lots of physical training, campers will keep a daily fencing journal to chart progress, make notes, store handouts, and record achievements.

Daily competitions with prizes and awards will offer chances to apply new skills learned during training sessions. The final day is a Tournament Day where campers run the gauntlet by competing in all three weapons to see who truly is the champion!

Princesses at Camp!

AGES 4-8 / July 20-24 / 9a-3pm

This full day camp experience is perfect for your Fairy Tale Princess! Characters we know and love so well like Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine, and more will delight our Fairy Tale Campers this summer!

Our week long camp includes creative movement activities with various Fairy Tale themes. We begin each day with basic ballet dancing skills and learn wonderful themed dances to the Fairy Tale Music we love! Our campers enjoy bringing their favorite characters to life through acting mini-scenes from our favorite princess stories. Campers enjoy creative games that allow our princesses to earn golden tickets and trade them for princess worthy prizes in our princess 'shop'. Our theme related arts and crafts projects offer some terrific keepsakes to remember our camp experience too. During the week camp we also learn about proper Princess tea party etiquette and plan a tea party to enjoy on the last day of camp too! Parents and Friends are invited to a special in-studio mini-performance and reception on our last day of the camp. Each camper will complete a decorated tote bag as a keepsake of the camp also.

This is a very popular full day, week-long camp for girls only, ages 4-8.  Camp hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday through Friday. We do NOT provide early drop off or late pick up times.

NOTE: No previous dance experience is needed for these camps. Students may wear whatever they like in our Children’s Dance Camps: Dance wear of your choice, fun costumes (that you can move in) or play clothing. If you wear a costume, please bring a set of play clothes to change into if needed. Students must bring their own mid-morning snack and lunch each day of the camp. Collierville Arts Academy provides only bottled water to students in camps.
