Weekly Projects
Each week students will explore an array of different mediums. We work really hard to make sure students are learning, exploring art and enjoying themselves. Everything project has variations available to suit all ages, so do not worry if the image looks too hard for your child. We have been in business for 12 years now, and are dedicated to making summers special!

We are licensed by the state and are always keeping up to date with guidelines. It's been a tough few years for the children and we want this summer to really be about the joy of creating. If your child doesn't want to take part in a certain image, we will give them another option. We never want to see a camper unhappy and are always very accommodating. All you need to do is tell us! So lets have a wonderful summer together, creating memories and works of art to treasure.Choose from full-day or half-day weeks or individual days. We have a teen drop-in option and projects for all ages. The Giggling Pig is a fully licensed day camp by the State of Connecticut. This requires us to obtain each child's health records. Either use ours, or bring in a copy of your child's school medical form.  PLEASE NOTE: Each child MUST BE registered prior to camp start date. PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF REGISTRATION. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON CAMP. Camp is non transferable. (Thank you for your understanding!)

We do not offer refunds on summer camp.
Summer camp purchases, MUST be used by the end of the summer.  Classes cannot be used towards anything other than what they are purchased for. Example, you cannot apply summer camps towards art lessons or gifts. One of our main reasons for not offering refunds is: We are a small business! We are an art business. Art supplies are ordered in advance for every student. We train and staff our camps, and invest a lot of money into being licensed, having a Dr on call should we need one and making sure every child has the best possible camp experience. Thank you for your understanding.
