The Chesapeake Arts Center will be offering camp programs to give kids and teens an adventurous and creative summer. CAC camp programs offer youth fun and unique experiences with an opportunity to explore, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime.
With more free time in summer, and parents having to work, the Chesapeake Arts Center provides a safe and fun learning spot for your children. The CAC encourages parents to help their kids unplug from technology and explore all the CAC summer programs and classes the center has to offer.

This summer we have a myriad of camp opportunities for your child that will give him or her glimpse into a world where dreams are born and lives are changed. “says Belinda Fraley Huesman, Chesapeake Arts Center’s Executive Director.
