General Information

Welcome to the Art & Design Camp Website! This summer, young artists can join the fun on MU Campus! New Art & Design Camps will be offered for students in grades 3 and up as well as several portfolio building opportunities for the high school students. These camps are offered in the same vein as the Technology & Engineering Camps that have been so popular throughout the past 20 years and are sure to inspire budding artists. All materials are included* in the price of registration and most camps allow for students to bring home several projects by week’s end. The sessions will all be held in Breidenstine Hall, conveniently located right next door to Osburn Hall, just in case students and their siblings want to mix & match. *Experimental Photography students should bring their own camera/smart phone if they have one. Otherwise, we can provide one for them.

Camp Descriptions
  • Etched Copper Jewelry, Key Chains and More!
    Create your own original designs etched in copper or brass! If you like to draw, you can transform those drawings into etchings on metal or just create cool patterns and textures. Etching is the removal of material using a chemical process to bring your design to life. Participants can then choose to make their designs into earrings, pendants, key chains or nameplates. Instructor: Becky McDonah

Camp Information
  • Daily Schedule
    A child’s camp experience begins when they enter Breidenstine Hall. The first day of camp, parents and students are given a brief orientation about what to expect throughout the week in terms of logistics. Midway through the session each day, the students and instructor stop for a snack break. Snack usually consists of soda and chips or pretzels. If your child has any dietary restrictions or allergies, please notify the instructor on the first day. After snack, students resume the creative activities. The child’s day ends when the parent or designated adults picks them up and informs them of their departure. At the completion of the camp, every child is awarded a certificate of achievement and a camp t-shirt.
  • Camp Locations and Formats
    Most camps are half day for an entire week. During each half day session kids get to take a break to have a snack and check out what everyone else is doing. On the last day there is a chance to show off what they learned to parents and friends. Included in the cost of each camp, is a souvenir tee shirt and certificate of achievement. Camps are led by local public school teachers and Millersville faculty. All of the camps are held on Millersville University campus. All Art & Design camps will be held in Breidenstine Hall, which houses the Department of Art & Design and is next to Osburn Hall. After registering your child a detailed letter will be sent to you so that you know where to go along with the required parking information. We ask that the responsible adult comes in with their child for a brief orientation on the first day. This will be an opportunity for the teacher to give last minute information to parents and a chance for parents to ask questions. ALL SPECIFIC ROOM LOCATIONS ARE NOTED IN THE CAMP DESCRIPTION SECTION. All Art & Design camps are handicap accessible. 
  • Camp Safety
    Personal and property safety is a primary concern in all Art & Design Camp sessions. All instructors are Pennsylvania state certified to teach their respective camps and about the equipment that it includes. Students will be made aware of all safety concerns toward camp equipment and will be required to wear proper safety attire when needed. All instructors have provided FBI, Child Abuse and Criminal Background clearances prior to the start of camp. A parent or guardian is fully responsible for supervising camp participants before and after designated camp times. Parents must escort children into the camp meeting area, and must escort them out of the building at the conclusion of the day. NOTE: Robotics camps and Engineering Camps strongly recommend that students bring safety glasses each day.
