What a wonderful summer it was!

It was so much fun that we're already gearing up for next year with plans for registration to begin early 2019. For your convenience, we've kept our 2018 information below as well as throughout our website. Be sure to check back and follow us on social media for the latest news. Thanks!

A summer tradition for young people all over the Portland Metro Area, Willowbrook plants the seeds that help children develop their potential to grow and thrive as human beings. In a day when the arts are cut from school curricula, our camps provide an opportunity for students to explore their creativity while directing their own schedules, making their own choices, and discovering their own interests in a supported environment. Not only do they learn about the arts, they develop valuable character traits that serve them throughout their lives.

2-Tiered Tuition: Choose the rate that fits.

Part of Willowbrook’s philosophy is to keep camp costs low in order to allow more families to enjoy the benefits of a summer arts camp experience. To help keep camp costs low, we do offer a Subsidized Rate. However, the SUBSIDIZED TUITION RATE DOESN’T COVER THE TRUE COST.

Please consider paying the standard rate of tuition to ensure that Willowbrook remains healthy and able to offer quality programming for as many children as possible. The rate you choose when you register will be locked in for the summer. To receive the Subsidized Rate Coupon Code, please email [email protected]

The registration fee and tuition for your child's first week of attendance must be paid when you register. These must accompany your registration form.

Willowbrook's structure of free choice and independence does not suit every child. An option to "test drive" camp can be done by registering and enrolling for at least one day. Then, you can come in, call, or send a note with your camper that you would like to extend attendance. This is only necessary if you wish to extend attendance within the week. Otherwise feel free to add days through our enrollment site.
