Creative Arts activities at West Hills Day Camp are designed to encourage all campers to express themselves individually by developing new skills and cultivating their hidden talents.
The Arts & Crafts program at West Hills is second to none and allows all children to produce works of art using a variety of media and techniques. This includes: ceramics, woodworking, digital photography, drawing, painting, collage creation, book/journal making, leather work, sand art, jewelry making, lanyard, beading and many other one-of-a-kind activities.
Our music program is run by a full-time specialist. The program consists of innovative music classes for children in our pre-school division as well as 1st and 2nd grade campers. Set in an innovative classroom infused with rock music, these little artists explore rhythm patterns, tonal processing, basic music syntax, and make emotional connections to great music. Confidence emerges leading them down their own little creative journey. They focus on contributing to the full development of confident, imaginative, young children, who go out and inspire their world.
Campers also participate in exciting dance and drama activities which, like all pieces of our creative arts program, are led by remarkable artists, New York State educators, aspiring teachers, and other individuals who have true passion for inspiring your children. We pride ourselves on the quality and originality of our Creative Arts projects and activities. All campers participate in an end of year show that highlights the amazing work they have done throughout the summer.
We look forward to creatively touching the lives of your child this summer!
