*We welcome your rising Kindergartener!  However if your child is not 5 years old by the first day of camp, and has not yet had a full year of all-day preschool in a classroom setting, we ask you to wait until they are a rising 1st grader to enroll them in Summer Camp Create.  We believe our littlest campers are most successful when then have already had experience with a full-day of intense activity in a group setting! 

Please email us at info@artscopestl.org if you have questions about enrolling rising Ks.
