Registration is now open for Camp MoCA, MoCA Westport’s weekly summer day camp.
Camp MoCA, located at 19 Newtown Turnpike in Westport, CT, features weekly sessions from June 6th through the week of August 22, 2022. Each week of the camp includes art activities, hands-on agricultural and gardening lessons, outdoor fun, and special events. Campers also have unique access to engage with MoCA Westport’s contemporary art exhibitions.
Camp MoCA Westport is led by certified art educators & CPR/First Aid-certified camp counselors.
Camp MoCA operates weekly from Monday – Friday, rain or shine. Campers can sign up for a single week or multiple weeks at a time. Camp MoCA 2022 now offers more options including:
- Full Day Camp (Ages 3.5 – 8): 9:30 AM – 3:00 PM.
- Half Day Camp (Ages 3.5 – 8): 9:30 AM -12:30 PM. Great option for younger campers.
- Afternoon Intensive Art Camp (Ages 9 – 12): 1 – 3 PM. Each week will feature intensive art enrichment opportunities for our older campers led by certified art instructors.
Anne Greenberg, MoCA Westport’s Director of Education, stated, “We look forward to welcoming returning and new campers to Camp MoCA this summer. Campers will love the diverse indoor and outdoor activities led by our talented art educators and counselors.”
“The weeks each have a unique twist so campers who join us for several weeks will never get bored – campers will be grouped by age and will have opportunities to explore nature, express themselves through the arts, and discover all that a day camp at a Contemporary Art Museum has to offer,” she added.
MoCA Westport features a HEPA-grade air filtration system, and all health and safety protocols will be explicitly followed.
More About Camp MoCA
Camp MoCA is a fully-accredited youth camp held both indoors and outdoors, weather-permitting. All campers must be potty trained. MoCA will be closely monitoring best practices from state governance to implement for the safety of all campers, visitors, and staff. Moreover, we will be requiring all staff, visitors, and campers over the age of two to wear face masks, socially distance, and wash their hands routinely while indoors. Increased vigilance will be given to our cleaning and disinfecting procedures of shared indoor spaces. As COVID recommendations continue to evolve, we will be flexible in adjusting to those changes and anticipate multiple revisions to our protocols over the course of the summer.
