MC Creators Camp is borne of the belief that kids deserve a space to grow their creative identity. Why? Because kids have BIG ideas that should be explored safely, skillfully, playfully and with the support of an encouraging (and cool) creative mentor. 

 

As parents ourselves, we understand the value of a camp that provides a safe, inclusive space to foster creative ideas, build friendships, grow self-esteem and, most importantly, to have F U N.

 

In its inaugural year, MC Creators Camp will host two consecutive weeks of Creative programming led by talented, successful, skilled Artist Mentors, who will work alongside youth in developing their creative ideas. This is a week of creative exploration your kiddo will not want to miss.
