Creative Soul Camp was born from a partnership between passionate small business owners committed to inspiring kids to explore their creativity.

With the goal of offering Madison-area kids the chance to spend their days away from school delighting in creative activities, like-minded youth enrichment instructors combined forces to develop unique, FUN, creative programming perfect for campers interesting in playfully exploring art, drama, yoga and culinary together! Each camp day offers a variety of activities in these different specialties, and the camp group learns about ways to create with their hands, bodies and minds in each modality! Camp happens at different local venues, usually on the west side of Madison or in Middleton. 

Camp opportunities are being added regularly and options can be found on our Upcoming Camps page!
