PRESCHOOL ART CAMPS
The Preschool Summer Arts Adventure Camp at The Oakville Academy School for the Arts will take children 4 to 5 years of age through a fun and magical introduction to the expressive arts.
The camp will be offered five mornings per week, in 4 one-week sessions, beginning Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 and ending Friday July 28th, 2017.
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. 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.
Snacks: Campers will not need to bring a snack to camp. All Preschool programs are guaranteed nut free. The Academy will provide a snack consisting of a starch (e.g. Goldfish Crackers, granola bars, digestive cookies, rice cakes), fruit and fresh water from our cooler.
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.
Camp and Dance attire:
Campers should come to camp in clothing that is comfortable and easy to clean. We will be using an abundant array of art media and small hands can make very big and creative messes! Children will dance in bare feet.
