This co-ed, overnight art camp is a four-day intensive program in establishing a body of work in portfolio preparation. The goal of the program is to expose students to a variety of media, to allow for exploration of personal art themes and provide a sound foundation in the vocabulary of art and art-related pursuits.
ALFRED, NY, April 2016 - Alfred University’s campus will be alive this summer with many camps and activities.
The Office of Summer Programs is offering several residential academic camps (Astronomy, Art Portfolio Preparation, Ceramic & Glass Engineering, Computer, Consumer Chemistry, Creative Writing, Equine Business Institute, Robotics and Theatre) as well as three residential sports camps (English Equestrian, Swim and Volleyball). 
We are also offering several day camps, both academic and sports. We have several week-long (Art, Basketball, Engineering “Lego,” Equestrian, Soccer, and Tennis), two one-day prospect camps (Football and Lacrosse), as well as a two-day clinic (Softball).
Top-quality instruction is provided by members of the University faculty and coaching staffs.
