“Community” is one of the values that Edgewood College holds dear.  As part of the greater Madison community, we want to open our arts resources to the children of our community.

Camp will be held in and around The Stream.  The Stream is Edgewood College's visual and theatre arts center. The dramatic industrial structure houses the Art and Theatre Arts Departments and is home to the Edgewood College Gallery and Diane Ballweg Theatre. Located on the southwest corner of campus, the building overlooks the surrounding woods and Lake Wingra.  The campus itself provides inspiration for the arts.  The 55 acre campus contains woodland, prairie, planted gardens, a tranquil lakeshore and a boardwalk through the marsh.

The faculty of the Art, Music and Theater Departments have been working together to craft an exciting multidisciplinary set of experiences for children entering grades 5-8.  Children can choose to “dive deep” into an area that they are passionate about through small group work with professional artists.  They will also have the opportunity to expand their repertoire, to dabble a bit, explore new areas, and discover new ways to integrate their skills and ideas across the arts spectrum.
