George and Harold’s Totally Awesome M.A.D. Camp

According to Dav Pilkey, friends connect when using their imagination and creativity and we at Crave Dance and ArtHaus couldn’t agree more.  Combining M(usic), A(rt), and D(ance) we’ve created an interactive summer camp packed full of movement, creativity and song.  Dance like no one’s watching, create your comics, and sing silly songs.  If you’re a fan of Captain Underpants, Dog Man or even Super Diaper Baby, this camp is for you.  Bring a sack lunch; snacks are provided.

Registration by May 18: $100 + $25 materials ($5 an hour)

Registration after May 18:$120 + $25 materials ($6 an hour)


ArtHaus is excited to hold its first different abilities summer art camp event in the Decorah community.  Karen Bendtsen, a Special Education educator from the Twin Cities, known for her use of art practices, will be leading the event which will focus on painting.  The artists will make individual canvases and work on a group project for display in the community.  Also spin art and shaving cream art will be available.

This camp is designed with the student in mind so registration is a must.  Parents should include in the “What do we need to know?” box any adaptations your child will need.  This may include anything from “My child will be attending with a PCA, parent or sibling,” and “My child uses a wheel chair” to “My child requires hand-over-hand instruction.”

The cost is $35 per family so parents and siblings can participate as well.  Scholarships are available.

We are holding this camp at Phelps Park so students can rotate between creating art and playing on the equipment.
