Camp MoCA is the perfect opportunity for parents to give their children a summer experience they will never forget. Our camp is fully accredited, so parents can rest assured that their children are in good hands. We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for all campers.

Sending your child to Camp MoCA is an investment in their future, providing them with a unique opportunity to explore their creativity, embrace their individuality, and develop a growth mindset. With a focus on agricultural lessons and featured artists, hands-on projects, and celebrating each camper's unique perspective, Camp MoCA offers a transformative experience that empowers campers to see themselves as members of a larger community.

At Camp MoCA, we believe that art is not just about creating beautiful objects; it's about fostering creativity, self-expression, and growth. Our agricultural lessons, for example, teach campers about the interconnectedness of our environment and the importance of taking care of the world around us. By engaging in hands-on projects in our working garden, campers learn about the importance of sustainable living and the power of collaboration. They learn that their actions impact the world around them and that they can make a difference in their community.

At Camp MoCA, we celebrate each camper's unique perspective and encourage them to embrace individuality. Providing a supportive and inclusive environment empowers campers to express themselves freely and explore their creativity without fear of judgment. Campers develop a growth mindset through this process that allows them to see failure as an opportunity to learn and embrace new challenges with enthusiasm and determination.

We believe all children should have access to creative expression, community building, and hands-on learning experiences, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. We are committed to providing opportunities for all children to attend Camp MoCA and participate in our unique and enriching programming. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and encourages a growth mindset, empowering children to see themselves as valuable community members. We believe that investing in a child's artistic education is an investment in their future, and we are dedicated to making this investment accessible to all.

Camp MoCA Westport is thrilled to provide a unique and engaging summer camp experience for young artists. By exploring diverse art styles and renowned artists, our campers will delve into themes of self-expression, family, community, sustainability, and cultural diversity. We aim to foster a love of art and creativity while helping our young artists develop character-building traits.

Throughout the summer, our campers will participate in character-building activities that foster trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, fairness, citizenship, kindness, empathy, resilience, patience, perseverance, and open-mindedness. They will also engage in hands-on activities that promote sustainability and eco-friendliness, such as creating recycled art and designing a better future for their communities.
