CCA and Cape May Nature Center are joining forces for two weeks to provide an all day camp. For ages 6 to 12, The Nature Center staff will guide your children through the regular Discovery Kids programs in the morning, monitor them during a lunch break and then CCA teacher, Paige Cunningham, will expand upon the morning activities and tap into your child’s creative side.
The first week is July 9th through the 13th, The Three B’s of Art will be offered. The world of birds, bees and butterflies will be explored using brushes, blending and bright colors.
During the second week, August 6th through the 10th, Primitive Arts is explored. From berry and dirt painting to fish prints to rock sculptures, this class will explore what nature provides for art materials.

CCA offers a class for elementary school children that explores creative thinking through movement, visual art, and writing during the school day. Each class has a theme and students will be led through activities in all three disciplines to explore that theme in weekly one and a half hour class sessions. Both independent and group work is used with an emphasis on self-awareness and positive group dynamics. This class is taught by local artist, Penelope Cake.
