Summer Camp @ MOCA: June 5 – August 4, 2023

Join MOCA Jacksonville for seasonal art camps for kids full of creativity!

Time will be spent exploring exhibitions in the galleries, creating in the studios, and learning through practice. With the guidance of museum educators, kiddos are empowered to problem solve through critical thinking, observation, and creative self-expression. Daily camps are available for students in K-8th grade.

Themed weekly camp sessions are available for ages 6-14 throughout the summer. Before care and after care options are available.
