About MetroArts Inc. Kids Camp

Celebrating our 27th year in 2019, MetroArts Inc. Kids camp gives kids ages 7-12 a chance to learn visual arts, music, and theater, Monday through Friday, for one to three weeks, at Portland'5's Newmark Theatre building (July 8-12 and July 15-19).  Right now, two weeks are confirmed with the potential for a third at Northwest Academy. We will keep you posted!

Each week offers a unique immersive multicultural experience with special performances by a guest artist and a field trip to the Portland Art Museum. Because of this, most campers attend multiple weeks.

What's a day at camp like?

Campers arrive by 9 a.m. and are introduced to the key creative words of the day. Then it's off to create original works in visual arts, music, and theater. Each week campers also enjoy a field trip to the Portland Art Museum, a performance by a multicultural guest artist, and participate in a camp-wide performance for parents to enjoy.  Camp ends at 4 p.m.

Access to the arts for all!

We believe every creative kid should have access to the arts. Because of this, we offer full and partial scholarships. If your family is receiving support in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program, SNAP, or WIC, please check back in December 2018 for the updated Scholarship Application Form. We are also able to offer payment arrangements to those who do not qualify for scholarships.

For older kids who would like to participate, and earn valuable volunteer experience, we offer Internships for kids ages 13-17.
