Summer Camps 2022

MOCHA is constantly updating their policies to reflect the most current COVID-19 guidelines. The following is required for campers attending in person: masks indoors for all guests, hand washing and sanitizing, and social distancing. 

As part of MOCHA’s practice, the Harvard’s Graduate School of Education Studio Habits of Mind framework is used as a method by our professional teaching artists in the curriculum development,  classroom, as well as reporting and evaluations to guide them throughout all visual arts programming.

Each week of Summer Art Camps, we immerse our campers in thematic artistic mediums where they can work within a structured environment while being free to test the limits of their imagination while they investigate and examine. Each week is designed to put the camper in an environment where play, creativity and expression, innovation, and exploration is validated through the process of making art.

Join us for innovative, hands-on, COVID conscious arts activities for children and youth, ages 5.5-13 (entering grades 1-7 in fall 2022). MOCHA campers work on a variety of engaging projects based on weekly topics.

Cancellation Policy

Full payment is required when booking a party or reserving a spot in one of our camps, workshops, field trips or other events. No cash refunds will be issued. Unless noted differently in the event description, we require 14 days notice prior to the start of your event date to grant a rescheduled date. Rescheduled events will receive the full amount as credit to be applied to the next booking. Cancellations less than 14 days prior to the start of the event date are  eligible for a credit that will be applied to your next booking less a 25% processing fee. 

 

Due to the significant preparation, staffing and supplies needed for these events and that a registration may have prevented another child from participating, all cancelled registrations less than 72 hours from a scheduled event and any no-show of any kind are not eligible for a credit for another event.
