Charles River Creative Arts Program (CRCAP)

Our award-winning Creative Arts Program provides campers with the opportunity to experience and explore many genres of the arts in an inclusive, welcoming and relaxed environment. We offer classes in dance, animation, painting, sketching, clay, creative writing, photography, film-making, rock-band, a cappella, theater, improv, textiles, fashion-design, and much more.   Campers select classes and pre-build their camp schedule from a course-catalog, usually released in mid-March.  They additionally have the option of daily free-swim and performing in our all-camp Noontime Shows.  Each session ends with a day of fun and informal performances/showcases that family and friends are invited to watch.
