Summer Camps 2015


Every Week
June - August

Ready For An Art Summer? Join us at the ZACC for one or many of our delightful and inspiring camps taught by experienced artists and teachers. Our 10-week long summer school covers a variety of different disciplines including drama, visual art, slapstick comedy, installation art, story-telling,costumes and games, and our AMP Music Camps!

We take special care to create the best curriculums possible with the most talented, experienced, and innovative instructors that Missoula has to offer. We accept a maximum of 12 kids in each camp in order to make sure each child gets adequate attention and quality instruction. Each camp is aimed at creating community connections, building self esteem, and helping youth to access their creative voice.

We are very excited to introduce AMP music camps. AMP (Alternatibve Music Project) is a collaboration between the ZACC and The Top Hat. Our music camps aim to break the mold of how children think about musical instruction, and campers will begin to see instruments in more creative and empowering ways, rather than intimidating and hard.

Full Day: $165 for Members. $180 for non-members.

AMP (Alternative Music Camps) Full Day: $215 for members. $225 for non-members.
