Welcome to a summer of creativity at Theo Art School! This is my 9th year offering our Annual Art Attack Summer Camps! What’s in your Summer?!
Our Summer Art Camps were developed to offer parents and their children a refreshing and inexpensive alternative to other camps by creating days filled with engaging and enriching sessions in the arts. When school is out Theo is in!
Whether it’s sculpting, using oil paints, pastels, or creating art pieces, our mission is to provide a dynamic, nurturing environment that encourages children to discover their unique creative talents.
It is our hope that children who join us this summer will come away with new skills and confidence that will encourage them to further explore the diversity of their world.
Registering for camp can be confusing! We understand. In an effort to make the process as organized and painless as possible, we offer you a Parent's Camper Confirmation Packet that includes forms, rules and guidelines, and what to bring. The What to Bring list will help you organize that backpack! The Rules of Day Camp are important; we ask that you read and discuss the rules with your child. Knowing what is expected of her/him and how she/he will be protected and respected at camp makes the first day much more comfortable for everyone!
If you have any further questions after looking over these materials, feel free to contact me at: 701-222-6452.
Like always, thank you for sharing your child(ren) with us!
Executive Director, Theo Art School
(More information in the Parent's Camper Confirmation Packet.)
Each day of the camp, the camper must be signed in and signed out by a parent/guardian with a Camp staff member present. Children may not be dropped off at the door or sign themselves in/out.

Lunch is not provided by Theo Art School. Supervised lunch: 12:00-1:00 p.m.
We encourage parents to send their kids with plenty of snacks. Theo Art School will provide 2 healthy snacks.
Please dress to get messy! Aprons and T-shirts for campers are available.
Closed-toed shoes are advised: please, no flip-flops or sandals.
The art studio can get cold, even in the summertime. Please send a sweatshirt or sweater with your child if this could be a problem.
