We did it. 12 weeks of camp in a brand new studio and 6 mobile camps throughout LA. Just the fact that we’re not all laying face down on the floor is quite a feat. I am so proud and honored to be a part of what our amazing team has accomplished. From week one to week twelve our campers had a blast and we are so grateful to all the families that trusted us and joined us for all the magic this summer.
Camp is about so many things, from art making to connecting, to forming new friendships to taking risks. I know my girls grew up so much this summer and I know so many parents feel the same about their own children. Here are some words we heard from families about their children’s experience at Meri Cherry Art Studio this summer.
As a parent with a creative child, there is no better place to foster my daughter’s blooming creativity than Meri Cherry. My 7 year old has attended summer camp for the past two years, and LOVES it. During camp, she’s stimulated, fulfilled, and constantly creating and dreaming about what she can make next. After camp ends, she asks when she can go back! We adore Meri Cherry and only wish we lived even closer so we could go more often!

Dollhouse camp at the Meri Cherry Art Studio was pure joy for my 5 year old. She was engaged in each process of the creating, she connected with each of the talented and caring staff and she thoroughly LOVES her final product. Everyday when she plays with her dollhouse at home she is reminded that she, herself creatively made each part. And as her mom, I’m reminded of how very special the Meri Cherry Art Studio is and how it enriches my childrens’ lives.

“My son had a rough end of the school year so to see him go, with no fear and all joy to somewhere new, where he knew no one, is the stuff of parents dreams. Thank you seems like not nearly enough.”

“We just had a FANTASTIC week with Olivia and Sydney. Sydney is such an incredible addition to the MC tam and Olivia is simply amazing! All of the moms were raving about the camp. They said they’ve never seen their kids so eager to get out of the house in the morning! The experience exceeded all of their expectations and they’re all asking when the next camp will be. Thank you for planning such a magical week for the kids! I’ll cherish all of the art my daughter made.”

“Our son looooooved camp. He not only had so much fun, but I really think he learned so much. Especially from watching the other kids draw, cut, etc. he learned new skills that he couldn’t do as easily before camp. I swear he was a different person after 4 days of Meri Cherry camp than he was before he started! He loved all the projects he did and was so proud to show us at the end of camp. We can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful experience! We wish we could send him to camp at Meri Cherry all summer!

Meri Cherry’s Unicorn Camp is what childhood dreams are made of. Unicorns, glitter, paper mâché, slime, smiles, laughter, snacks, fun, fun, and more fun. My daughter was shy to be dropped off at first, but of course, Meri’s lovely staff members are quick to make 8-year old besties and they did just that. They took my daughter under their loving wings and helped her to fly. This camp is seriously THE BEST. Not only does the theme go through and through the whole week, but they get to have free time to create other art pieces outside the main project. My daughter especially loves the artist trading cards. Unicorn camp at Meri Cherry’s art studio is a one of kind experience, that your child will never forget. They will walk away covered in rainbows, glitter and unicorn smiles.

So here is a glimpse into Meri Cherry Art Camp through a series of picture perfect moments.
