Many of our programs and events take place outside of schools. We frequently partner with other organizations to create community specific programs. These include activities for community events and festivals, summer camps, workshops on specific topics, and conference presentations. We also hold many classes and programs at our community arts center – Center for Creative Action!
- Kids BallEach October we host this free, interactive event with treats, kid and family-friendly activities, costume-making, and dancing as we celebrate kindness, strengths, treasures, and creativity!
- Friend FestFree family event held near Valentine’s Day with crafting activities, music and food samples at Central Market.

- Youth Arts FestFestival celebrating the art created by middle school and high school students in Creative Action’s programs. Exhibitions include theater, paintings, photography, music and film.
- Summer CampsWith a different theme each week, our summer camps will keep your kids busy, happy and growing. Each week ends with an opportunity for kids to share what they’ve discovered and made with friends and family.
