Our summer camps provide children with a creative atmosphere where they can explore their artistic side, learn new skills in the visual arts, and grow their imagination. Through a wide variety of media, professional artists and supportive art educators share their knowledge and skills with students in a way that engages, challenges, and inspires them.
Camps also include time outdoors and field trips to campus destinations such as the Museum of Natural Sciences, Rayner Dairy Research and Teaching Facility, Kenderdine and College Art Galleries, Snelgrove Gallery, Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre, and the Museum of Antiquities.
All camps run from 9am to 4pm in the RJD Williams Building at 221 Cumberland Ave North. Camps are tailored to each age group and run seperately although there may be some joint activity time.
