One People’s Summer Arts Camp is a one-week camp that provides youth-centered and community-based arts education 100% free to kids.

Youth ages 9-14 participate in activities designed to nurture their creativity while building awareness, confidence, and community. During the week, campers enjoy guest performances and talks by practicing professional artists. 

One People's Summer Arts Camp is a free, fun, and exciting program operated with help from the
local community. The Camp is supported by community partnerships and individual donations that help provide the program with supplies, a t-shirt for each camper, and dinner each evening at
no cost to the campers or volunteers.

The camp concludes Friday with a Camp Celebration. The celebration features special performances by the campers themselves, along with a community cookout featuring local artists and community organizations. Family, friends, and community members are welcome to attend.
