Scholarship Applications for Summer Camp are closed. You can contact education@samfa.org to see if there are any available. 

 

Policy allowing parents to stay and observe camp: 

We believe that a parent’s presence can be distracting to some children as well as staff. Therefore, we prefer parents do not stay. This is standard practice by other museums and comparable institutions. However, if there is a specific need to stay and observe your child; this will need prior approval from the Curator of Education. The specific times must be approved by the Curator of Education and the Lead Mentor at least two weeks prior to camp start date. You must contact the Curator of Education privately to setup volunteer times. 

ALL DAY CAMP IS IMPORTANT TO A CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE…

 - Campers grow personally. They are given the chance to experience new things and interact with other children on a daily basis. - Campers learn new things. Whether it’s playing a new game, practicing an existing skill or developing their social skills, campers leave our camp having learned something they can remember for a lifetime.

 

Any questions concerning summer camp information can be emailed to studio@samfa.org.
