Cultural Council Posts Guide to Cultural Summer Camps for Children
The Palm Beach County Cultural Council, the official arts agency that serves non-profit cultural organizations and professional artists throughout the county, has posted on its website (www.palmbeachculture.com) a guide to local summer camps with a cultural theme.
“Camps at cultural institutions are fun for kids in the summer, and parents can be assured that their children are learning something valuable and being exposed to arts and culture. They are also a great value,” said Rena Blades, chief executive officer of the Cultural Council.
Among the 43 participating local cultural organizations offering summer camps for children are the Armory Art Center, ArtStage Performing Arts Center, Everglades Youth Conservation Camp/FAU, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Lake Worth Playhouse, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Norton Museum of Art, River Center, Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, Sol Children’s Theatre in partnership with Olympic Heights Community High School, South Florida Science Museum and the Youth Orchestra of Palm Beach County.
In addition, 14 of the participating cultural organizations listed online are offering 18 different summer camp scholarships with values ranging between $100 and $600. Interested parents can register for summer camp scholarships on the Council’s web site. The deadline for registration is April 13, 2012.
