What to Expect
A day at Camp Philbrook starts in our studios, but we quickly use the whole museum: art, gardens, etc. to explore what it means to be a creative thinker and maker. Our workshops are geared towards getting messy, working together and making space for every child’s ideas.

Here are a few things to know:

  1. We offer before and after care. See below for details
  2. All day campers may elect to bring their own lunch or purchase one from our onsite restaurant, Kitchen 27.
  3. We have a morning snack and afternoon snack built into each camp sessions.
  4. We use the whole museum, which means we spend ample time outside when the weather permits. Please pack a water bottle daily and arrive wearing sunscreen and bug spray.
  5. Your days at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and fun! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.

Before & After-Care
Before & After Care is offered for each week of Art Camp for an additional $30 per child for Before Care, $30 per child for After Care, or $60 per child for Before & After Care. With the addition of Before & After Care to your ticket, you may drop your child off as early as 7:45am, and pick your child up at the end of the day between 4:00pm and 5:30pm.
