The Summer Art Program at James Madison University is posed as an example of a well-established and consistent arts enrichment camp. Started in 1978, Summer Art has been welcoming youth to campus to experience in depth study of the visual and performing arts in professional quality facilities. Purposes and goals of youth arts camps in various settings are explored as a basis for providing engaged community arts services. This chapter provides a rich description of all facets of the Summer Art Program from its mission to planning for the final art exhibition. Benefits and challenges to running a community-engaged program along with recommendations for starting or revitalizing an arts enrichment program are also shared.
