Children learn skills from experienced educators 

MOCA Jacksonville's Summer Art Camp offers creative art-making for ages 4-14 during weekly sessions over summer break. Campers have fun with new friends as they create unique works of art and explore the galleries. Experienced art educators teach a variety of media and skills while providing the contemporary art history context for each project.

Refund Policy

Your registration and tuition reserve your child’s place in a camp session and allow MOCA Jacksonville to purchase supplies and contract staff. At our discretion, camp tuition may be refundable up to two weeks before a registered session. After this point, no refunds can be made.

Camp Attire

Your child will be in an intensive, studio-based art-making camp experience, using materials in a safe and creative manner. Some materials may be permanent so please remember to “dress for mess."

Lunch, Snacks, and Field Trips

Campers must bring snacks and lunches daily, including beverages. MOCA cannot provide refrigeration or microwaves. Trips may be made to nearby galleries, Hemming Park, or the Main Library next door for lunch or programs that parallel the art curriculum of the session. Campers will be supervised at all times while outside of the classroom. Please provide sunscreen.

No violence or aggressive behavior of any kind will be tolerated, including but not limited to, threatening behavior, destructiveness, inappropriate language, verbal or written threats, harassment, verbal abuse, physical abuse, or disruptive or inappropriate behavior. A camper who exhibits violent or aggressive behavior will be suspended immediately for the day, and parents will be contacted. If the behavior persists, the camper will be asked to leave the camp program until the following year. All camp fees are nonrefundable once a session has begun.
