As the school year comes to an end, children are looking forward to a summer filled with fun activities. The Gold Coast Arts Center’s (GCAC) Summer Arts Camp offers creative experiences to children of all ages with activities like cartooning, chess camp, music, 3D arts, as well as specialty camps taught by top artists and performers.
A wide array of engaging and stimulating programs await campers this July and August on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Children can attend one- or two-week programs, which each culminate in a performance, competition or exhibit for parents and friends to enjoy—and they can sign up for as many sessions as they wish. Plus, kosher and nut-free lunch and snack options are included.
At Musical Theatre Camp, from July 11 to 22, they’ll explore and create their own renditions of contemporary and theatrical hits with daily classes in voice, basic music and dance to help them experience the thrill of performing on stage.
At 3-Dimensional Art, from Aug. 15 to 19, kids work with wood, papier–mâché and wire.
From Aug. 22 to 26, Chess Camp will be offered.
The Gold Coast Arts Center is located at 113 Middle Neck Rd. in Great Neck. For more information and to register, call 516-829-2570 or visit www.greatneckarts.org/wordpress/school-for-the-arts.
