FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- If you're looking for something 'outside of the box' to keep your kids occupied while they're out of school, there are several summer
camps in the area that can do just that, while also helping them learn.

One of those camps includes Fayetteville's Community Creative Center which has been around for seven years. But this is the first year it's offered 'It's Time for Art.'

The eight-week long program takes kids back in time to the arts of ancient Greece and Rome, and even the Renaissance period, with the grand finale ending with a Crystal Bridges Museum sculpture tour.

But it's not just about arts and crafts.

"The kids get a chance to use fun resources, they use gold paint and they make pyramids out of cardboard and they did clay work and it just keeps them engaged," says Barbara Putman, Executive Director of the Community Creative Center.

"It's a great opportunity for parents to feel safe and comfortable, that their kids are gonna have fun and they're gonna learn something too."

The camp is filling up fast with about 45 kids already signed up.

But there's still time to register.
