2023 NCMA Camps

NCMA camps let your child explore their creative side in a one-of-a-kind setting. Time in the galleries and walks through the Museum Park provide endless inspiration during fun-filled weeks. Campers not only make their own amazing pieces but also get to engage with great works while making connections between art and their lives.

Camp Details

Each camp is Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm, with classes for ages 6–7, 7–8, 8–9, 9–11, and 12–14. 

Camps go on sale to members on Wednesday, January 25, and to nonmembers on Wednesday, February 22.

Registration and Pricing 


  • $290 Members (per camp)
  • $320 Nonmembers (per camp)
  • $35 Early drop-off (8 am)

Cancellation Policy

To receive a refund (less a $50 fee per student, per camp), you must cancel at least three weeks before the first day of the camp. No refunds will be made during the three weeks before each camp. If the NCMA cancels a camp, a full refund will be made.
