Summer Camps 2023

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 1-8 in fall 2023). MOCHA campers work on a variety of engaging projects based on weekly topics.

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.
