Art Specialty Programs

Becket Day Camp has partnered with the Becket Arts Center and will offer 4 summer art specialty camps for campers aged 5-13. The art specialty programs help bring skilled artists and children together to learn the fundamentals of art but also to explore their developing passion for art. There is no additional charge for this program, but spaces are limited.


Children arrive at Becket Day Camp at 9:00 AM and participate in Opening Circle, as usual. At 9:15 AM, they will be transported to the historic Becket Arts Center, just 2 miles away, where they will participate with local artists in one of the following program areas. At 12:30 PM they will return to Becket Day Camp for lunch and will participate in regular, free-choice afternoon activities at camp, until closing circle at 4:00 PM.
