Summer Camps & Workshops

Summer Camp Opportunities

Our Summer Camps are going ‘digital first, in-studio second’!

In the long term, we plan to return to in-studio programming, but for now many of our summer camps will be virtual, with the possibility of some smaller in-person camps later in the summer.  We have been working hard to create great Virtual Summer Art, Animation and Video Production Camps. When we do return to in-studio programming, we want to be able to ensure safety for our staff, students, families and everyone in our community.


Summer camps 2020 will mirror last summer's structure, with adjustments made for a 100% virtual format.  Our team will provide clear schedules and online creation methods, with distance support for all interested in expressing their ideas on screen.  All art supplies or other needed materials will be provided to students ahead of time.

For the most part our process will utilize tools available in each person's home, and to assess the capacity each family has, we will be asking families to fill out a technology survey.  We will try to make accommodations as best we can for all interested students.

To answer questions about this year's summer camps, we will be holding a live question and answer video call on Wednesday, June 10th at 6pm. Please send an email to darmstrong.camp.createability@gmail.com if you would like to be included on this video call so you can receive your link.

For those who are ready to take on the challenge be sure to register as soon as possible.

We realize this is a difficult time for many and some will choose not to attend virtual camps, but we also know that most of you would not choose in-person camps either.

Our reasons for making the choice to invest in a ‘digital first, in studio second strategy’ include:

  1. To maximize safety for our staff, students, families & community
  2. Flexibility to make smart choices
  3. Accessibility now and in the future
  4. Providing certainty and clear expectations
  5. Ensuring future in person interactions options are by choice.

Createability Wisconsin's Camps and Workshops are designed for individuals with Autism or other disabilities, but we encourage others without disabilities to join us for an inclusive setting.  Creating an art masterpiece, animated or short film is a monumental effort for any individual or group, but for those with Autism or other disabilities, vital skills must be mastered to succeed, including cooperation, negotiation, listening, and taking direction. Participants will learn those skills as well as be introduced to many art mediums, animation, set design, script-writing, acting, dancing, singing, prop/set building, ward-robe, make-up, budgeting, directing, filming, editing, and other tasks necessary for a film.   Film camps are open to any child going into 2nd grade through adult.

NEW for 2020 is our Art Camps.  Art camps are open to any child going into Kindergarten through adult.  Interested in drawing, painting, clay and being creative then the art camps may be for you.  With some imagination and a little guidance participants will learn drawing and painting techniques and variety of other art mediums.
