They are working with us to build the accommodations needed for the partners to come and build our new year-round dining hall!   Find out more about this extraordinary project and see some of the pictures here. 

We need some help! If you  have some power tools or small backhoe etc. you can lend us for the next month or more, please let us know (chop saw, table saw, generator, etc).

Our own Lego Robotics Team #FLL has won top score and project innovation awards at the RecentProvincial Championships at Acadia University, and won a spot at the first ever International Open in Toronto this June! Congratulations to all the competitors (including many camp faces), and see more here.

Ross Creek is grateful to Country Stoves and Sunrooms for their generous support of the Residency program–the farmhouse now has a lovely new wood stove!

Ross Creek is teaching architecture! We’ve been working with Glooscap school and starting at NorthEastKings to explore the world of designing and building environments that are interesting and sustainable.

Ross Creek will be doing an exciting new program for young parents and their children at-risk. Working with whole families, we will be giving free art, theatre and writing classes and providing materials for young parents with their 3-4 year old children.

Still space in the best arts programs around. Skill development in all the arts for kids aged 5-18, great camp setting on 178 acres overlooking the Bay of Fundy, and amazing counsellors. From Pirate week to Picasso, from robots to Rembrandt, and ballet to bongos, with pre-professional programs in music, theatre, visual arts, film, writing, choreography and dance, all on a retreat setting, this is the place to make magic and memories. 

PLUS: NEW! You asked, we deliver! If you have a child aged 7-11 who HAS NEVER BEEN to overnight camp before and is thinking about it,  they can come try it out for a night! For $40 plus tax, they can come and stay on Thursday night for campfire (campfire? we LOVE campfire!) and cabin, being picked up when you see the show on Friday. A great way  to start your little one in the best traditions of overnight camping! Plus, in our first week of single day camps, kids of any age who haven’t been to our overnight camps before can try it out if you book for both Thursday and Friday day programs. VERY LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE

Also, for parents of eight year olds, we allow you to use your discretion about the best place (junior or intermediate program);  if you choose the junior program, we suggest they comes a day camper, while we do take eight year olds for the intermediate overnight camps!
