LEAF Camp welcomes all rising first through fifth graders for a week full of daytime adventures through creative and performing arts.

Kids will step into the magical world of LEAF for a week filled with a variety of fun activities. LEAF Summer Camp will re-create the beloved festival experience for kids as they participate in dance workshops, healing arts, face painting, drumming workshops, hula hooping, singing, Dj dance parties, circus fun, costume galore, youth performances and more!

During LEAF Camp, kids will learn about global cultures, friendship, self-confidence and empowerment through the performing arts! For an hour each day, kids will learn and explore with a local performing artist. Through this intimate learning experience, kids will transform into superstar artists by the end of the week, with a final performance for families and community members.
