Did you know Little Hands offers summer camps in Fairfax and Manassas through the Potomac Arts Academy? Read all about it below.
This year’s theme is: Worlds of Music, Worlds of Fun!
Kids (ages 3.5 – 7) will have a blast exploring music, dance and art in this integrated arts camp! We’ll sing, dance, play and create with songs and stories based on a whimsical, imaginative theme. Each day will include time for hands-on music making, story telling, dance and movement, “jam session” and an art project. All craft items, instruments and props provided. Children will be grouped according to age. At the end of the program, there will be a classroom tour and family activity.

What is the environment like?
This program has a highly creative, energetic and engaging environment to explore their artistic world. The program is warm and allows for free artistic expression in a safe setting, allowing children to build their own creativity and appreciate it in others.
What are some things my child will do and learn?
First, they will enjoy LOTS of musical styles from around the world, learn new songs and play with familiar tunes in new ways. Through experience in rhythmic play, both with instruments and through dance and movement, children will gain competence in self-control and musicality. By integrating the arts into normal daily activities, children will gain a new, highly positive and inspired view of the world around them.
