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!
NEW! 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 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.

Day of the Dinosaurs
Roar! Is that what Dinosaurs sounded like? Find out that and much more in this fun and fact-filled day full of triceratops and pterodactyls! Kids will make their own dino-ramas and create a dino-costume!
Have your child join us for a day of exploring! We’ll investigate the creatures we might find in our woods, under the earth and in the sky for this day of learning all about the magical world all around us through art!
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.
Up, Up and Away!
Explore science and art of the skies! Through stories, myths and play, we’ll explore the sun, the moon and the wind, and all the creatures who live in and use the skies! From mosquitos to bats to birds, we’ll have fun designing and building our own kites and creatures!

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 are delighted that we are able to fund a full 10 % of all students through the generosity of corporations, businesses, individuals and some schools. Bursary applications for SummerArts are available by clicking here. The deadline for submissions annually is December 1. They can be faxed or mailed to us with that date as the postmark.
