Each year the Tampa Museum of Art provides scholarships to make Summer Art Camp a creative and enriching experience available to all children, regardless of economic backgrounds. Need-based scholarships are available for a limited number of campers. To fill out our scholarship form, please click here.
Wait-list will be established on a first-received basis when a camp sells out. If space does become available, parents will be notified via email. Space will be held for two business days before being offered to the next camper on the list. To be added to the wait-list, fill out a Summer Art Camp wait-list form, which can by found here:
To respect the time of Summer Art Camp staff and volunteers, we implement a late pick-up fee to parents/guardians who arrive past the scheduled pick up time.
All refunds will be charged a $10 administrative fee per camp.
The Tampa Museum of Art offers smaller and safer all-day or half-day art camps where campers can create, learn, and play in our socially-distanced classroom, in the galleries, and in the Curtis Hixon playground. Camps have different themes based on the Museum’s permanent collection of antiquities, modern & contemporary art, and exhibitions on view in our galleries.
