Summer & Holiday Camps
Kinder, School-Aged, Preteens, Teens

Nominated for Best Camp in Oakland Magazine, CAMP 510 believes in cultivating a community of makers who have the creative agency and confidence to help shape a better world. CAMPers explore the innovative and magical in studio art, tinkering, public art, food and cooking, electronics, building, soldering and welding, sewing, crafts, video, music, and more. Unique projects are chosen for each week of CAMP and are scaled to be developmentally appropriate for each age group of CAMPers. Equipped with the right tools in a participatory community environment, these projects are led by professional artists and makers in the spirit of D-I-T (do it together).

STart Camp: (grades 1-5)
Studio Trio Art Camp — STart CAMP — offers three projects each week and is designed to engage CAMPers entering grades 1-5. In this program, CAMPers rotate in small groups to each of the three projects every day, all five days of the CAMP week. This is a structured environment that offers developmentally appropriate challenges and levels of materials usage for young makers and artists, and is well-suited to the creative needs of these ages. With a 1:4 staff to CAMPer ratio, your child will have plenty of support to complete projects. Each project of the day is hyphenated with a recess time (see our Typical Day schedule below).

XP Camp: (grades 5-8)
XP CAMPs are week-long, intensive and process-oriented projects for older CAMPers (Xtra Process). In XP CAMP, older children focus on one project all day, all week. This format meets their needs to learn more and do more, and allows these artists and makers to delve into the material full steam ahead. XP projects encourage this age group to be ambitious, take risks, explore their tools & skills, work together and independently, and to dive deep.
