Top Music and Performing Arts Camps in Portland

Metro Arts Inc.

MetroArts Kids Camp, now in its 24th year, offers kids, ages 7-12, the opportunity to participate in all of the arts. Each day offers the opportunity to be immersed in a different artistic adventure in visual arts, music, theater, or dance.
