Each Summer, RCCA offers three core arts programs for camp and community groups of all ages to engage in free of charge. These typically include ART STUDIO Workshops, PERFORMANCE Series & STORYTELLING Adventures. See below for the details:

SUMMER ARTS:  Let Your Inner Artist Shine

RCCA hosts four summer art workshops in July. Participants experience new media and techniques that they may have never before. All supplies are provided and workshops are free to the children of Camden.


Summer is time for fun and RCCA’s performances do not disappoint. We offer performances in hip hop dance to comedy to aerobatics. There is something for everyone. We love hosting summer camps and can’t wait to entertain you every year.

STORYTELLING: Tall Tales with Kyle J

You can’t miss Tall Tales with Kyle J – Everyone’s favorite storyteller, Kyle Jakubowski will weave his delightful word magic and captivate pre-school aged children through interactive storytelling. This year you can tune in virtually, making it even easier to join in on the fun!

TWO STORIES, ZERO BOOKS! Each weekly session includes two stories, which the children help to tell through call-and-response, creative movement, and other ways that provide engaged learning and encourage a love of words and an interest in reading. While all of the stories are inspired by some of our favorite children’s books, Kyle uses only voice, movement, props, and imagination to make the stories come to life!
