DAY or OVERNIGHT PROGRAM – click here to register
With one week programs, campers get a full camp experience. Focused arts programs give children an opportunity to explore while having an amazing summer camp. From camp fires to talent nights, this program rocks! While campers can come as day students, we strongly encourage the overnight program. At the end of each week, the children share their work with a gallery and performance for friends and family at 3:30.

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.
