KidsACT is an acronym for Kids Are Creative Thinkers and we are a dynamic summer camp for young aspiring artists where they are free to creative expression. Founded on March 14, 2019 by Tonya Mayo, KidsACT provides the opportunity to challenge children from 4-12 to be creative, explore and take risks by exposing, empowering and encouraging them through performing arts, visual arts and creative writing!
Growing up, our founder and CEO Tonya participated in summer camps and was involved in multiple activities such as volleyball, soccer, dance, track and musical theatre. Tonya always wanted to learn more about the arts but never had enough time or a central location to learn different outlets at the same time. Through KidsACTs mission, Tonya hopes her Small Creative Artist learn more about themselves while discovering new artistic outlets in one place.
KidsACT strives to collaborate with artists around the community and give our children open space to find their creative outlet. It is our priority and duty to not only create a safe, open space but a brave space for our children who have the right to be heard! How can we navigate our emotions of sadness, happiness, anger and uncertainty for a positive outcome? Please remember you have a voice and it deserves to be heard. You have the power to make a positive change!
Registration is open and we are ready for you to join us!

KidsACT is Where It's At
KidsACT was founded to expose, encourage and empower children, also known as Small Creative Artists (SCAs),through all arts forms while discovering their creative outlet(s). We want your SCA to feel challenged, comfortable taking risks and open to creative expression.
KidsACT will employ creative learning strategies and introduce creative outlets through workshops, field trips, mentoring, and hands-on activities that are shared with the community. This is a new and innovative program that will help increase the number of successful students in local schools through an improvement of grades as well as social and emotional intelligence!
As a black owned business, it is our priority and duty to not only create a safe space but a brave space for children who have the right to be heard! Throughout this virtual experience, we will discover our creative outlets and ways to express ourselves through dance, poetry, music, drama, and photography/videography! How can we navigate our emotions of sadness, happiness, anger and uncertainty for a positive outcome?
Please remember you have a voice and it deserves to be heard. You have the power to make a change! Please consider making a difference for your society.
