DX P.A. Day Camp Programs are full day sessions in which budding designers create projects based on the day's theme.

All themes are studio based and explore various design fields from graphic to architecture to industrial and mixed media. Each session is lead by our team of experienced educators from the design and creative field.

No previous design experience is required.

The end of each session will include a 30 minute showcase from 3:30pm-4pm in which family and friends are invited to check out what budding designers have worked on during the day.
