Arts & Exploration Camp!
By popular demand the annual Jacksonville Science Festival (JaxSciFest) is excited to announce its inaugural Summer ARTS & Exploration Camp featuring six weeks of S.T.E.A.M. driven FUN!
JaxSciFest is now well known for its S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) driven city-wide event featuring Jacksonville’s k-12 grade students partnering to creatively develop fun, interactive, educational projects they present to the community during the annual festival. The Arts & Exploration Camp incorporates similar aspects but offers an ARTS focused thread including visual, performing, and environmental arts and weekly field trips for additional fun.
Camp host site is Foundation Academy, a 23 acre campus including art, dance, and drama studios, organic gardens, an aquaponic farm, interactive sports, and more. Camp is open to children ages 5-15 with age appropriate groups and activities. Parents can enroll students for one or more weeks of camp June 9th through July 18th. Camp is $90 with $10 registration fee per week (Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm). Before and after extended care is available.
