Detailed Information

The Hive connects campers aged 5-12+ with deCordova’s 30-acre Sculpture Park and Museum exhibitions. Kids explore real world ideas, unbounded creativity, and inspiring innovation. The five week-long theme-based sessions spark imaginations. Summer campers make their own amazing art projects. Each week culminates with campers designing and constructing an ambitious sculpture installation in the Park.

A week at The Hive is more than art making. It fosters communication, problem solving, and teamwork. Kids forge new friendships and build individual confidence. STEM/STEAM concepts are embedded throughout the camp. The interdisciplinary immersion relates to real world problem solving.
