2012 programs were fabulous, with phenomenal art created by kids and a great time had by all. From live outdoor theatre and great recreation activities to the amazing art programs, we are proud to say we have an unparalleled program for kids.

We’re gearing up for a fantastic summer full of all the arts. SummerArts Camp at Ross Creek is a program dedicated to fully engaging your child and giving them amazing new skills. Far more than an ordinary camp, Ross Creek gives your child all the advantages of an amazing art program with the rec and atmosphere of a camp all on an incredible site overlooking the Bay of Fundy. With organic gardens and professional artist studios, for city kids from around the world or country kids from down the road, Ross Creek provides an unrivalled program.

Canadian Families: all of our camps and programs are now eligible for the Canadian Arts Tax Credit!  We provide a receipt, and for each child, you can claim up to $500 per year!

Our Academies are  expanding and shifting in focus. Ross Creek is proud to offer  a unique approach to arts for passionate teens.  We create a superb learning environment and now a more collaborative forum for the young artists who are with us. Click here to find out more about this amazing opportunity.

While teens are an integral part of our SummerArts camp experiences, we are also offering a full teen week of fabulous bootcamps to energize and challenge teens in various art forms to bridge the gap between camp and the academies, more focused on camp and recreation than the academies in their new incarnation.

For those who want an equal mix of summer camp and summer arts with their peers. Click here to see that week’s cool programs.

We welcome national and international campers and will do everything to give them the best summer of their lives. Special arrangements can be made for campers to come to all three weeks of SummerArts and stay through the weekends with a month’s advance notice.
