We are looking forward to seeing your children at art camp this summer!

Camp location

Our camps are held in the Williams Building (221 Cumberland Ave North), in the art studios rooms 118, 117 and 306. Please check your registration information or our website for where to drop your child off.

If you are driving, there is parking behind the Williams Building. When you come in off Cumberland Ave North, follow the signs that direct you around the loop. Please be aware that this is one-way only. Also please be cautious when entering and exiting the parking lot, it can be very busy at the beginning and end of the day. There is also street parking on Cumberland.

Camp times and before and after care

Camps run from 9am to 4pm. All campers can be dropped off starting at 8am and picked up right up to 5pm without penalty and with no further charges. There will be no formal art instruction during “before and after care” time, but our summer interns will have self-guided art activities available for your children to explore.

Participants must be signed in and out each day by an adult. Please be aware that adults picking up children will be asked for photo ID and must be listed as a pickup person. If the person picking your child up is not on the list provided when you registered, you must email community.arts@usask.ca to have them added. For security and liability reasons, we cannot release children to anyone not on the list.

For those children 12 years of age and older you may have checked the box when you registered allowing them to leave on their own. In these cases sign out is not required.  

If you are unsure of the information you gave us when you registered your child, please refer to your confirmation email that you received at the time of registration. The form you fill out was attached and is there for you view the information submitted. If information you submitted needs to be updated/changed please email community.arts@usask.ca and provide the changes.

What will happen at camp?

We will have all kinds of art activities that will include opportunities to explore different art media and themes, do individual and group work, go on field trips to locations on campus, and have social time during lunch and snack breaks. We will also include physical activity breaks to engage our bodies and keep our minds fresh.

Orientation

We will have a short orientation the first morning to go over camp rules and to make sure your children feel safe and welcome. As parents and guardians, you are welcome (but not required) to stay for the orientation.

What should your child bring to camp?

  • Lunch and two snacks (NO NUTS PLEASE)
  • Water bottle
  • Clothes that can get messy and stained
  • Sun hat
  • Good walking shoes (runners or closed-toe shoes are ideal)
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent

Will you have an art show?

Yes! This is always a popular part of our camps and our campers are excited to show you all their creations. The art show will be on Friday at 3:30pm in the gym, Williams room 266.
