Spectrum Summer Program at Tandem Friends

Spectrum Summer Camp is a fun and educational program designed for rising 1st through 6th graders, while Spectrum Summer Courses provide engaging opportunities for rising 7th through 9th graders. Spectrum offers a safe and nurturing environment where children can learn and enjoy different art forms, express their creativity, and develop their artistic skills through hands-on activities and projects. The camp allows children to explore different art mediums, such as painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, theater, dance, music, sewing, and more, under the guidance of experienced and qualified instructors. The instructors provide technical knowledge and skill-building opportunities while fostering your child’s imagination and creativity. Your child can choose activities to engage in while working closely with peers, counselors, and instructors throughout their session.
