Mana Academy Summer Camp

Spy Hop Productions and Mana Academy have teamed up to offer Mana families exclusive Spy Hop summer camps to kids ages 9-14. The cost of the camps is FREE for all Mana Academy families and their eligible children.  

Spy Hop is a nonprofit organization that offers in-school and afterschool classes and summer camps in film, music, audio, and design for kids 9-19. Spy Hop’s summer camps are offered on a weekly basis (Monday – Friday) from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm — with early drop-off and aftercare available (see below). All camps are taught by Spy Hop’s talented artist mentors, giving campers a caring counselor, hands-on instruction, and ample opportunities to connect and collaborate with their friends. Camps are organized by themes such as film, music, animation, or game design.

Spy Hop Hangout (Extended Care)

Spy Hop Hangout is meant for campers whose families are unable to pick up when daily programming ends. The Hangout atmosphere is relaxed allowing time to chill with friends, play games, or work on an art project. Campers will be provided with a small snack and will be fully supervised. Spy Hop Hangout runs daily from 3:30 – 5:30. Families MUST register for Hangout prior to the start of their weekly camp. Campers cannot attend Hangout without signing up prior to the start of their daily camp.
