Summer Programs

Our summer camps and classes are designed for maximum creative impact with trips to unexpected places and cool new activities. You’ll work with local artists, professionals, and teachers who are super excited to share what they love. We’ll get your body, mind, and creative juices flowing through mindfulness, lots of movement, and hands-on projects. Get ready for creative adventure!

Make art and make memories!

Welcome to the intersection of art, community, and joy: professional theatre, world-class concerts, films, exhibitions, education and outreach. The Saugatuck Center for the Arts is a community sparkplug bringing people – and learners of all ages – together under one roof. 

Let your children experience the JOY of creativity this summer!  Inspired by the lush lakeshore environment that surrounds the Art Center, all of our classes include experiment-based art projects, multidisciplinary learning, outdoor kinesthetic activities, and healthy snacks to keep both mind and body active and creative.
