Van Goghing to Broadway

Easter – and Easter Break – is just a few short weeks away. That means it’s time for MacDonald Island Park’s Van Goghing to Broadway Camp for children 6-12 years of age.

Whether it’s drawing, painting, singing or dancing this week-long camp has it all. Students will learn visual and performing arts techniques and styles and study famous artists. The camp will then end in a final “Broadway” style production with an art exhibition of the student’s best pieces. Lunch is included, while cost is $245 per student for the full week.

Registration for Van Goghing to Broadway must be done at Guest Services. Space is limited.
