Need some holiday cheer? Come on in and experience the Wonder of Winter at The REALM Creative Academy!

December 26 – 28 (Wed – Fri)

During our first week of camp, campers will be working on a huge collaborative Gingerbread House that will be open for tours at the end of the week.  From December 26th – 28th, kids will be imagining, building and creating Winter Magic together!  Kids will also work on individual gingerbread creations (including a gingerbread version of themselves), play winter relays, go on treasure hunts and carol around town.  Don’t miss out, on THURSDAY, we will also be taking an adventure to the Santa Monica outdoor skating rink to test our balance, speed and figure skating moves!

January 2 – 4 (Wed – Fri)

During Week 2, we will be getting lost in a Magical Winter Forest! Campers will build majestic pine trees, blizzards of snowflakes, and create mounds of miraculous hidden forest creatures.  After creating our winter wonderland, kids will transform themselves through hand-made masks and costumes and become part of the scene! Kids will create short skits to perform for all of camp at the end of the week! Just because it SO much fun, our older campers (7 and up) will take an adventure to the Santa Monica outdoor ice skating rink again on Thursday!

What is REALM Camp?

Escondido Falls, Malibu

While REALM Camp has become famous for our zany adventures, amazing art projects and our extraordinary, loving counselors, it’s more than that…

The REALM Camps are about doing the things you love while trying things that you have never done before. It’s about the joy of learning something new about yourself, or discovering a hidden talent or passion. It’s about stepping “outside the box,” feeling inspired and inspiring others. It’s about creating, learning, reflecting and sharing. It’s about exploring our world like a playground with a careful eye and open heart. It’s about unfiltered fun, contagious laughter and delight of exhaustion after a full day of adventure!

There are a zillion camps out there. What differentiates the REALM Camps from all others?


Our Philosophy

First and foremost, we want campers to have a ridiculously fun time. In addition, we also feel that we have a unique opportunity to help kids step out of their ordinary routine and jump into possibility, try something new and Seize their Greatness!!


Our Style

We love and nurture kids. We escort them towards success. We honor their strengths and support them through challenge. We invite them to take risks. We encourage them towards choices that work for both themselves and others. We honor, invite and look forward to each and every teachable moment.


Unique to REALM Camps

– The combination of artistic, academic & social education offered in combination and with equal importance
– Educators trained to teach in a style that encourages creativity and honors students unique strengths, passions and learning preferences
– Our ability to create distinctive opportunities that are designed to prepare students to thrive in an ever changing and constantly progressing world
– A constant consideration of everyone’s unique learning needs and a commitment towards getting those needs met!
– An unwavering commitment to the growth, joy and connection to every single camper at The REALM!


Our Activities

While many camps specialize heavily in one area such as arts, music, sports, etc., at The REALM Camps, we provide a wide variety of experiences and activities that will allow kids to freely work their creative muscles! Throughout our camp days, kids at The REALM are experiencing learning through doing, creating, collaborating and playing. Kids will start each day with some open play time followed by The Morning HUB! (High Fives & Hugs, Uh-nouncments, Breakdown).

Next stop: 3+ hours of fun! Kids will rotate through 2-3 activities that range from creative art projects and experiences relevant to the days theme to classes in science, music, puppetry, botany, yoga, theater, martial arts and more!

Lunch can happen at the center or on the go. Campers should pack a healthy lunch and drink.


Our Staff

Our staff is like none other. It’s one thing to have a great mission and program of events, but all that is only a vision without awesome implementation. Our staff is dedicated. Our staff is creative and smart. Our staff is super experienced. Our staff feels like family. They will love your children unconditionally and believe in them relentlessly. From drop off to pick up, teachers are together with the kids to connect throughout the day!
