Perhaps more of an art school that offers art classes than an actual camp, the Wizard of Art offers summer workshops many kids love. Moreover, considering arts & crafts is such a widely known and loved summer activity offered at camps everywhere, remiss not to include The Wizard of Art on this list. We've heard from a number of parents whose kids signed up for just one or two weeks for this camp, but loved it so much they extended their original enrollment time for the whole summer. Maybe yours will too!
