Summer 2020 Science Camps

Parker Arts is keeping camp registration open by lowering camp maximums to 9 or 12 depending on what is required by the contracted camp provider. Families are encouraged to join a wait list free of charge in the event we may be permitted to have more participants in a classroom. Any camp that already had over 9 enrollments will be closed until we have more guidance, but please make sure to join the waitlist.
