This camp is an extension of JINA's Art 2 Science after-school programs which seek to ignite stellar imaginations through an integrated STEAM approach to learning. Participants learn about math, science, and engineering through creative hands-on projects including art projects. Activities are designed by collaborations with local artists, science teachers, and more! For examples, see the sample schedule and highlight videos below.


Application Information:
*New changes this year!*

To be able to serve all interested children, we are expanding the camp and removing the application process! We will host two identical sessions in July. Please only register for one session.

We are replacing the former Friday schedule with a field trip to Kalamazoo, MI. All campers will visit both The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. There will not be an art show on the last day and we may return slightly after 5pm. To offset the cost of transportation, we are also increasing camp fees slightly.

Registration Information:

Registration for the 2018 Art 2 Science Camp is now available!

Counselor Applications:

All counselors positions have been filled for 2018.

Fee Information

--- The camp fees are based on a sliding scale according to your household eligibility school lunch fees. Payment is due at the time of registration. If you homeschool, or don't know your lunch eligibility, please see the information here:

If your family pays full lunch prices (or would at a typical public school), the camp fee will be $200. If your family pays a reduced fee for lunches, the camp fee will be $75 per child. If your family is eligible for free lunches or SNAP, the camp will be free for your children.

Our philosophy is that no child should be denied an educational experience due to finances. If you would like a discount for multiple children or if the fees above would pose a hardship for your family please contact the camp director @ You can also contact us if you would prefer to pay by check or money order.

Educators: If you are an artist or scientist interested in leading an activity, please contact with a short statement about your experience and the type of activities you are interested in leading. We have many to choose from, or can incorporate new ideas.
