Creative Arts Academy

Arts & Culture Camp

Young creatives will be immersed in a cultural journey through the arts that will help them explore their voices and engage in an examination of freedom and community. This experience will be based on principles meant to support young people becoming active agents in their own education.  At CFAC, we are particularly interested in exploring those principles through creative, reflective, and artistic experiences – and OF COURSE, we will have fun along the way!
