COURTESY PHOTO Area children will have a chance to receive a daily dose of art and culture this summer when the city of Palm Beach Gardens presents its innovative summer camp geared for art-minded 9-14 year olds. The ‘Cultural Arts Caravan’ traveling camp will be held July 3 and July 5-7. (There will be no camp on Tuesday, July 4.)

Campers will meet each day of camp at the Burns Road Recreation Center, 4404 Burns Road, and from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., they will travel to a different cultural venue in Palm Beach County. All transportation is provided, and campers must bring lunch, snacks and drinks daily. The cost of the camp, including before- and aftercare, is $225 for Palm Beach Gardens residents and $282 for non-residents.

This camp for art lovers will travel to local art galleries, cultural sights and theater venues such as Uptown Art in Jupiter, Delray Beach Playhouse, Lighthouse Arts Center in Tequesta and a climb to the top of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. Sketching at the Juno Beach Pier and Loggerhead Marine Life Center will round out the week.

Campers will experience engaging hands-on art projects while working with professional artists in the community and receiving the benefit of greater individual attention. They will be encouraged to approach each off-site opportunity with a concentration on arts education.

Registration is available by visiting www.pbgrec.com or at any Palm Beach Gardens Recreation service desk. For more information, call Amy Stepper at 630-1116 or email astepper@pbgfl.com. ¦
