These camps are fun, week-long immersions into a various theme which will include art, music, theater, swimming and more! Most camps are full-day so that students can enjoy different activities throughout the day and from week to week. All materials are provided unless otherwise specified. You can register campers for one week or all eight! Designed for beginning to intermediate levels, students need no prior experience. Classes, lunch and breaks are fully supervised by CSA instructors and staff. Instructors are ISU faculty, ISU graduate arts students and ISU undergraduate arts education majors.  All fitness sessions are taught or supervised by instructors and lifeguards, and are designed for children at all fitness levels.
