Camp Lakewood Open Houses are designed to give you and your children or teens the opportunity to meet the camp directors, ask questions and see the beautiful property.

Wiggle your way to Play Street Museum for a bug-themed event you won't want to miss! Guests will learn about squirmy worms and bugs. Each child will make their own "dirt & worms" to eat, search for bugs in sensory bins, go on a bug hunt with dirt, and end the session with story time. There will also be plenty of time for free play. Each child will also go home with their own "little bug keeper."
Bring your whole family to Craft Alliance to get creative during Third Friday. This month's theme is Camp! You'll get to try some fun activities that are part of Craft Alliance summer camps, plus, take a first look at the new printmaking studio, make a paper pizza, participate in a weaving demo, and play a giant operation game.
Craft Alliance has been providing arts education and craft experiences to the St. Louis Community for over 56 years. We are thrilled to embark on another year of creative offerings for St. Louis families. Whether your young artist wants to sculpt with molten glass, learn to weave, or throw on the potter's wheel, we have a camp for them. Our team of professional teaching artists know how to engage students with new skills while having fun. We can't wait to welcome you to our new, expanded location in the Delmar Maker District, where we have updated, larger studio spaces to safely social distance and have fun learning a craft. Summer art camps provide young artists the outlet for exercising both critical and creative thinking through clay, fibers, metal, glass, and more.
Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Aspiring princes and princesses are cordially invited to a royal tea at The Magic House!

Everyone likes a treat, and the animals at the Saint Louis Zoo are no exception! Visitors can watch these special "egg hunt" enrichment activities and learn about their favorite animals. Plus, kids can participate in a digital scavenger hunt of their own.
Come learn the Olympic sport of fencing at St. Louis Fencing Center. We believe anyone can learn how to fence, and our camps are constructed for complete beginners to learn a new sport or for current fencers to hone their skills. No experience is necessary, equipment is provided, and we welcome all skill levels to join. Fencing is an individual sport that allows children to learn confidence and how to take responsibility while engaging both the body and the mind. In addition to being an exciting physical activity, fencing requires strategy, planning, and decision making.
Children's activities include storytelling, arts and crafts, mask-making and educational workshops. In conjunction with the festival, the Saint Louis Zoo will have special activities focused on a different African animal each day.
Schlafly Art Outside is a three-day invitational art fair featuring affordable art from more than 60 artists based in the St. Louis region. Enjoy quality art, tasty food, local brews and live music.
