Stifel art camps provide exciting hands-on activities that allow each child to explore art, meet creative challenges and exercise the imagination. From drawing and painting to photography and pottery, children explore their creativity through a variety of artistic mediums.

A trained staff of educators with experience working with children and teaching about art lead all camp activities. Campers will swim at the Wheeling Park Pool Monday – Thursday and will be picked-up at the pool entrance. Cookouts will take place every Friday at the Stifel Fine Arts Center with hotdogs, chips, cookies and juice. Friday pick-up is at the Stifel Fine Arts Center.
