Skate & Make This Summer!

This summer we’re partnering with the Oakland Ice Center to provide afternoon art camps at MOCHA for children enrolled in the Ice Center’s morning camp. Registration is limited to Ice Center campers only. To register for MOCHA camp, you must have already enrolled in OIC camp.

Join us for eight weeks of innovative, hands-on arts activities for children and youth, ages 6-12. MOCHA campers work on a variety of engaging projects based on weekly topics. Campers will spend the morning at OIC camp and after having lunch at the Ice Center, they will be escorted across the street to MOCHA where they will spend the rest of the afternoon making art. You will pick up and check out your camper from MOCHA.
