Each one week session offers young campers the opportunity to explore, in depth, a core fine art experience. In addition to the core art experience offered daily, campers also take part in a dance/movement games session, choosing time and snack. A music session is presented twice weekly for 5- day participants and once weekly for 2 and 3-day participants.

This dynamic summer program will be taught by our  Kindergarten and Preschool teachers as well as Instructors from our Dance and Music Faculty.

Participants have their choice of Monday through Friday (5 day option) or Monday, Wednesday and Friday (3 day option) or Tuesday and Thursday (2 day option).

**Campers must be 4 years of age by the end of May 
and be fully toilet-trained**

Camp begins daily at 9:00 am and concludes at 11:45 am fro Half Day Campers and 3:30pm for Full Day Campers.

Campers will be lead to the front foyer for dismissal by their teachers. Art packages – consisting of the work created during the week – will be sent home on the Friday of each session.

What to bring to camp:

All campers will be required to bring a full change of labelled clothing to camp in a backpack each day. Even if your child is fully toilet trained, a full change of clothing is required.
