CAW Summer Arts Explorers Day Camp
2 campuses:
Workshop Explorers

This camp is offered at our Nyack based studios and provides small group programming. Each day we do blended ages activities, age appropriate lessons, free-play, and community trips to many of Nyack’s wonderful community resources.


This camp is great for children who feel more comfortable with a balance of more indoor activity with plenty of playtime and fresh air at our local parks.

Oratamin Explorers

Our partnership with Oratamin Swim Club moves into our second year! This day balances nature art, culinary arts with partnerships with Nyack Farmers Market Vendors, games and swim time with the Oratamin professionals.


You can even sign up for private swim lessons with the Oratamin swim team! This camp provides plenty of fresh air, outdoor activities and play in the pool!

CAW Afterschool Arts
2 ways to play:
Choose by Days of the Week

Are you looking for some additional support from an Afterschool program during the week?


We've got you covered. Choose 5 days/week or just the days you need. Each day your child is with us, they will get homework support, snack, and explore a different art modality with an expert Teaching Artist.

(Bus stop and/or private shuttle pickup available from select schools as well.)

Choose by Type of Arts Program

Is your child a lover of all things creative?

We have programs in movement, theatre arts, culinary arts, color and painting, music, puppetry, and more for children ages 4 through 13.

Each of our arts programs is taught by an expert Teaching Artist and runs as a weekly workshop for either 6 or 12 weeks so that your child can dive deep into one modality or try out a whole variety over time.
