For kids at SP Nation Camps, no two days are alike. During the exciting summer sessions, youngsters entering grades 1-3 engage with Seattle's vibrant art world through themed programs led by the area's seasoned artists and educators. Whether they're learning the finer points of the culinary arts or testing out their Sherlock Holmes accents during detective camp, kids expand their horizons with a blend of hands-on activities and immersive field trips. Themes change weekly, filling the entire summer with opportunities for enrichment.
This dedication to keeping summers educational is just one facet of SP Nation Camps' mission. They are affiliated with Sweet Pea Cottage, whose mission is to "enrich, inspire, challenge, and expand every child's world through an arts-based education," based on the belief that the arts are an integral component to a child’s whole development, both socially and scholastically. Those values have guided the nonprofit, which was founded in 2001 and currently serves over 250 children annually at three different campuses located in the Queen Anne, Sand Point, and West Seattle communities.
