Red Panda Art Studio summer camps are held at the Little House at Westmoreland Hills Park (5315 Elliott Rd, Bethesda, MD). Camps are designed for ages 3.5 to 10, unless otherwise noted. Camp meets from 9:00AM to 3:30PM Monday thru Friday. Our camp week wraps up on Friday afternoon with an art show, the highlight of the week! Each week, campers will have the opportunity to learn about artists and art techniques related to the theme. The camp day includes lots of time for hands-on art exploration along with lots of time outside. We take full advantage of the shady playground and nature trails around the Little House. Cost for the camp week is $400/child.
