Updates for Summer 2021 In-person Camps:
We have made some changes to our camp structure this year in order to keep campers and staff safe and to follow current health and safety guidelines during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Group sizes will be smaller than usual, and groups will not intermingle throughout the day. Mini Camps will only be available for weekly registration, not daily. Other safety precautions will include screening campers upon arrival, required use of masks and social distancing, and drop off and pick up being coordinated at the main doors to the building to prohibit parents/guardians entering the building. If you have questions about additional safety protocols please email Lauren Whittaker at ltannenbaum@durhamarts.org.

Afternoon Adventures:
In order to follow current health and safety guideline during the ongoing pandemic the Afternoon Adventures program has been cancelled.  Most camps have been converted to full day.

Performances and Art Exhibits:
Due to the ongoing pandemic in-person performances and exhibits have been cancelled and will be done virtually instead.
