ARTS SMARTS 2024 will take place from June 17–21 and June 2428, 2024 at the Ware Center in Lancaster, PA, including 12 unique camps each week in morning and afternoon sessions for young campers in Music, Theatre, or Visual Arts. 

These camps have been created especially for children in two grade-level ranges: (rising) Kindergarten–Grade 2 and (rising) Grades 3-5. Each camp is different, and there are morning and afternoon options for both grade-level ranges and in all three disciplines – Music, Theatre, and/or Visual Arts.  And the camps are open to children of all abilities. 

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both! (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.) Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity. On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week. Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff.   

The staff is comprised of a team of professional teaching artists and Millersville University Arts Education students who have full clearance for working with children.


Camps are $125 for a 1/2 day session, per week, per child. We offer full and partial scholarships.

Please email or call 717-871-7812 to inquire about scholarship options. All scholarship recipients will register with Barry Kornhauser.
