LVA & Waterfront Park Juneteenth Camp
For Children Ages 7-12, June 12-16, 9:30 am-4 pm
Waterfront Park and Louisville Visual Art are proud to offer the 3rd Annual Waterfront Park LVA Juneteenth Camp to you and your students. This weeklong summer day camp (for ages 7 to 12) is available to students from the Zones of Hope and will take place 9:30 am-4:00 pm June 12-16. Campers will be introduced to the works and history of Ed Hamilton, Muhammad Ali, the Underground Railroad, and more enriching information relating to Juneteenth and our city of Louisville. After learning this extraordinary history, campers will then create their own sculptures, collages, miniature landscapes, and paintings to express themselves and their newfound knowledge. Explanations of their art will be practiced throughout the week to prepare for their very own celebratory art exhibit at the end of the camp.
These camps are scholarship-based and cost-free for all children participating. They are available to children through recommendations. Educators, community leaders, and artists can recommend up to two (2) students per camp. Some camps will require an admissions application essay or video which will be juried, other camp placement is on a first-come, first-served basis. Camp sizes are limited to 15 students each.
