Overnight Tryouts! If you have a junior 7-8 years old who is thinking about overnight camp in the future, 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!
We know that seven and eight year olds can be in different places, so we welcome you to decide what program is best for them. However if they are in the junior program, we suggest they are only day students.
DAY PROGRAM ONLY
This Multi-Arts program challenges children to use their imaginations to explore the world through Visual Art, Music, Creative Movement and Drama. Each week the program will revolve around a cool theme so children have the opportunity to learn how to work cooperatively and collaborate in the arts. At the end of each week, the children share their work with a gallery and performance for friends and family at 2:30. Click here to register.
Full Week Programs
Our junior programs explore the theme through theatre, dance, music and art, ending in a final performance and gallery of the campers’ work.
Dr. Seuss! (multi-art)
Bring your child into the magical world of DR. SEUSS and see them be inspired to create their own zany worlds and inventions. From art to poetry, from songs to science, campers will be enriched by the silly and serious fun of SEUSS!
Jungle Jamboree! (multi-art and science)
Join us as we explore the mysterious wonders of the jungle. Campers will explore various jungles around the world, and make art based on the creatures and cultures who live there! With music and art inspiring them throughout the day, this will be a mighty adventure of art and imagination inspired by the beautiful jungles of the world!
Dramatic Deserts! (multi-art and science)
Did you know the largest desert in the world is in Antarctica? That we have deserts in Canada? This amazing oasis of a camp will explore some of the world’s great deserts, the creatures and cultures that live in them, investigate art and music inspired by the desert and make their own!
Sailing the Ocean Blue (multi-art and science)
We’re exploring the age of sail in this art and science program. Discovering the creatures of the sea and amazing ships and their voyages, campers will learn sea shanties and investigate the pirate stories of legend! From walking the plank to giant squid, this is a program to be treasured!
Up, Up and Away! Ages 5-10 (multi-art and science)
What’s that in the sky? It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a cloud, it’s the wind! It could be any of these things and much more as we look at our sky and the heavens in this art and science program full of fun. Campers will explore how things fly, and make their own whimsical wind-powered inventions!
