From the Pump It Up of Elkridge Owner, Denise Smith

"At this one-of-a-kind camp, kids spend time exploring their inner artists, laughing, playing games and bouncing on state-of-the-art inflatables! Jump-N-Art was developed by a fine arts education center and emphasizes the joy of self-expression through art . Studies have shown that when physical activity is blended with artistic activities, creative capabilities are greatly enhanced."

A Day at Camp 

Upon arrival our sleepyhead campers get a preview of the fun to come with our “jump start” free play session in the arenas! Once we are all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed we gather in the lobby for silly songs and safety reminders! The fun REALLY kicks into high gear when we separate into our different classes for some awesome, hands-on art lessons and snacks. Have you ever painted with GLUE? Colored with your FINGER TIP? Created your very own 3-D EXHIBIT? Well our campers do this and more every single day of camp!

Our little artists dive right in to a cornucopia of art mediums during our two lessons taught by our certified teaching staff. You will love to see their imagination and creativity combined to make not only marvelous masterpieces, but create memories that will last a lifetime! The only thing more fun than molding clay to create a unique sculpture is getting a high-five from a new friend who can’t wait to race them through our HUGE inflatables while they pretend they are on a desert island hunting dinosaurs!

There is no limit to a child’s imagination, and our camp counselors will bring out their most creative ideas during our theme-based structured play times. Whether it is a scavenger hunt for lost treasure, a fierce game of FREEZE DANCE or training to become an official super hero, we will rock their socks in the arenas!
