Sing, Dance, Drum, Paint, Stretch, and Play the Days Away with Us! 

Engaging and inspiring programming for children ages 4 to 10. Each week is crafted around a different theme and finishes with an informal performance and art show for family and friends.

Daily classes include singing, drumming, art, dance, drama, and yoga, as well as plenty of free-play time outdoors. We break for morning and afternoon snacks as well as lunch mid-day. Campers are asked to pack their own food and bring comfortable clothing they can move in, an art smock, and a yoga mat or towel.

A week before camp starts we send out a detailed email to all registered families outlining what to send your children to camp with each day as well as the daily schedule of activities.

We continue to offer safe programming during the COVID-19 pandemic and have implemented the following protocols:

  • All Camp Monarch staff members are vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Outdoor classes (weather permitting)
  • Reduced class sizes
  • Social distancing
  • Commercial-grade air purifiers with HEPA filters in each studio
  •  3 separate, brand new HVAC systems installed within the past year help to ensure that not everyone is sharing the same air.
  • Increased sanitization measures (especially of high-touch surfaces)
  • No shared props or supplies
  • Frequent hand washing
  • Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Mask wearing optional
  • Commercial cleaner in every night
  • Siblings, cousins, and friends in the same social bubbles grouped together
  • An end-of-camp video will be shared instead of gathering together for a performance

In its 20th season, Camp Monarch continues to be a place where fast friendships form, imaginations soar, and children are encouraged to achieve their highest potential in the Arts.
