About

Camp Contemporary is a two-day camp experience that will transform Laguna Gloria's fourteen acres into an elegant campground for guests at night, followed by interactive festivities during the day. Guests will enjoy artistic performances featuring local artists, live music, a culinary experience, boating in the lagoon, collective art making, and a range of activities throughout the Sculpture Park. 

The overnight portion consists of 80 campers and the following day will open up to another 400 day campers. 

All proceeds from Camp Contemporary will directly benefit the museum's education programs which serve over 30,000 children and adults each year.

Volunteer positions range from set-up, assisting art making activities, maintenance and event breakdown.
