“I can't say enough good things about the Creative Action Summer Camp program. It is well organized, fun for the kids, and most importantly - the staff seems to genuinely care about the children and their experience. ”

Janet Zeitler, Summer Camp Parent

Summer Camps

Creative Action Summer Camps are among the most popular in Austin! That’s because our camps are not just fun; they also offer children enrichment curriculum through our 4C principles of creative youth development. We aspire for our campers to be Creative Artists, Courageous Allies, Critical Thinkers, and Confident Leaders.

Whether your child is a quiet, “behind the scenes” player or an outgoing, “center stage” star, there is a place in every camp to nurture their skill and talents! Our Summer Camps take place in several locations around Austin. Each week has a different theme sure to keep your child engaged and excited about coming to camp.
