the hive decordovas summer program photoFor curious kids who want to think, discover, and make things together! July 5-August 5 for ages 5-7 and 8-12.

Join us this summer as we explore other worlds through the looking glass, map the artistic adventures of walking, tinker with simple machines, and artfully construct tunnels and bridges.

Contemporary art in deCordova's 30-acre Sculpture Park and Museum galleries connects the hive’s weekly themes to real world ideas, unbounded creativity, and inspiring innovation. Our instructors are artists, naturalists, and makers who love exploring and sharing the intersections between art and nature in a collaborative environment. Each camper’s personal interests and unique abilities are welcomed and complement those of new friends. At the hive everyone learns from each other.

This camp must comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and is licensed by the local board of health.

The youngest campers must be 5 years old by July 1, 2022.

Weekly Themes:
July 5-8: Kindred Souls: Past, Present, Future (no camp on Monday, July 4)*
July 11-15: Tangible Communications
July 18-22: Architectural Ruins: Beautiful Opportunities
July 25-29: Funky Decay and Slimy Renewal
August 1-5: Nature and Humans: The Inevitable Infinite Intertwine
