A real character

Led by renowned cartoonist, author, and musician Jeff Koterba, campers will explore many different techniques as they create their own cartoons. Campers will learn about all the needed ingredients for making cartoons, comic strips, and graphic novels including drawing, creating characters, storytelling, and more.

Jeff will be joined by a talented team including a screenwriter for film and TV, a children’s book author and illustrator, and a standup comedian. Jeff believes that everyone is creative, and campers of all abilities and curiosities are welcome.


Monday – Friday; 9 am – 4 pm  |  Grades 6 – 9

The enrollment fee is waived for campers who otherwise would not be able to participate in Creative Camps. The Creative Camps enrollment fee covers only part of KANEKO’s expenses. Please consider helping us provide access to all campers by contributing additional support. We’re grateful for your contribution.

A camp t-shirt, lunch, and snacks are included and campers will eat outside whenever possible. Shirt size and dietary restrictions will be requested during the registration process.

Campers may choose to have their projects included in a final Creative Camps Exhibition at KANEKO.

Our goal is to provide all campers with an experience filled with unique and distraction-free opportunities. All camper’s phones will be checked each morning. While a short period of phone time is scheduled for each day, we aim to have a phone-free environment. Campers are always accessible to families through the KANEKO phones.

For any questions or marketing requests regarding Creative Camps, please contact Jessica at or 402.341.3800.
