Every great actor knows that improv is a must-have tool for the stage! This workshop is designed to help actors develop those skills in a fun and fast camp that gets to the heart of live performance.
Abstract art is a great program that gives young artists new ways of thinking about not just art, but the world! With guidance and games, this workshop will explore making abstract art through a number of media, and encourage you to explore line, pattern, and colour with hilarious inspiration from art history.

The Arts Bus runs during March Break and will travel throughout the Valley to make it easier for parents to get their children to Ross Creek. There are only 14 seats, so first come first served. Bus service is an additional $10 a day, regardless of whether taken both ways. It is supported by O’Regan’s and Clean Nova Scotia and The Ecology Action Centre. Bus fills fast, so please call to check on bus availability.
Bursaries and Scholarships
We are pleased to offer full and half bursaries and scholarships for students who need financial aid. Bursary applications require letters of reference, so please apply early. Bursary decisions are made by a committee and are based on need and merit. We regret that we cannot give full bursaries to all students, but try to assist as many children and families as we can through the generosity of corporations, businesses, individuals and some schools. Bursary applications for March Break are available by clicking here.
The deadline for submissions is January 1.
