Color My World – Japan
Take a trip to the exciting islands of Japan. During our journey together, you’ll have the opportunity to try out your new chopsticks, make your own kind of special seal, and maybe even learn a few words of Japanese! Through crafts and stories, games and activities, you’ll walk away with a greater knowledge and interest of this fascinating and rich culture.

Color My World – Egypt
Hop on your camel and let’s get ready to explore. We’re on our way through Egypt to find mummies, pyramids, Pharaohs, and much more. You will have the opportunity to make Egyptian headdresses, build your own pyramid, write your name in hieroglyphics and explore the curse of the Pharaohs. These are just a few of the fun activities, so join us on our journey through Egypt!

Color My World – South Pacific
Come fly with us to the Hawaiian and Polynesian Islands. Stops along the way also include New Zealand and Fiji. Explore the islands culture through Hawaiian Legends, Tiki Masks, Native foods, language and the art of Hula dancing. Let us show you what the Aloha spirit is all about.

Ages 9-11

Color My World – North Africa
Welcome to the Mediterranean! This is your gateway to a culture filled with mystery and history. Let’s explore through rhythm, drama, arts & crafts! We will learn about their language, scenery, and symbols. Find out how students in Morocco live, and why this place brings out the best in you!

Color My World, India – Namaste
Welcome to India, the land of elephants, beaded jewels and mythical stories. Come find hidden treasures with us! This week we’ll be exploring the depth of riches in historical and cultural life in India, through the importance of animal life to the populace, the ceremonial dress and architecture, and traditional food and dance. Your children will bring home stories, beads, and masks, and wonderful memories and an understanding of India.


Dance is creative and aerobic. Develop a love of dance in your child now and they’ll be hooked for a lifetime. High-energy dance camps are performance-oriented and open for registration now.
