Summer Camp

Rumriver Art Center 2023 Summer Camps

Rumriver Art Center is offering over 50 Kids Summer Art Camps in 2023. The camps provide a stimulating environment for young artists to grow as creative, unique individuals and to learn how to solve problems visually. Campers get to work on a variety of fun projects and participate in the joys of making art with friends, experimenting with painting, drawing, mixed-media, sculpture, and much more! Each camp has a new focus so students that enroll in multiple sessions encounter all new studio projects.

  • By registering for summer camp you are agreeing to Rumriver Art Center policies outlined on our policies webpage:
  • Make sure to read the entire registration page to get information about age requirements and pricing. You will need to click “read more” to see everything.
  • Camp check in and check out will take place from your vehicle by our main entrance. Look for the Rumriver Art Center flag and signs for one way entry and exit for the safety of all campers. 
  • Please do not come more than 10 minutes early. This causes a backup in check in/out flow.
  • Campers may bring their own snack. We also have assorted snacks available for purchase for $1.00 each. If you purchased a snack cart punch card with your camp registration, we will keep those cards here at the art center while your student is attending camp.

  • Water is provided, but students MUST bring their own water bottle.
  • Please wear clothes and shoes you can get dirty and leave your hand/wrist jewelry at home. Making art can get messy, and we don’t want you to lose anything. If you are in a wheel throwing pottery camp, you must bring a towel from home to wipe your hands during class. If you are in a Nature Art Camp or Plein Air Camp, bring a bag or backpack to carry your stuff in while we are on our walks, please make sure you have proper footwear for walking, put on sunblock prior to the start of camp, and have a hat or sunglasses.
  • Please know that we hope to make this a positive experience for your child. Campers are expected to behave appropriately and respect their peers and RRAC teachers. We do ask everyone to follow all rules and respect others while attending camp.
  • Major work on the Highway 10 Anoka road reconstruction project has resumed for the second year and will significantly impact getting to Rumriver Art Center. Please allow yourself extra time to get here and plan your route ahead of time. The first traffic impact is the closure of Ferry St. at Hwy 10 through fall 2023. Hwy 10 is single lane traffic in each direction from Ferry St. to 7th Ave. through fall 2023 as crews resume work for the season. Ferry St. will remain closed at Hwy 10 through fall 2023 as crews build the new bridge. Check out the Minnesota Department of Transportation Highway 10 Anoka Project webpage for the most up to date information.
