ART + NATURE : EARTH
Join Sarah in exploring the Environmental Art Movement! In the footsteps of Andy Goldsworthy, Sarah will take children on an artistic journey in nature and challenge them to ponder all of its magical mysteries. This camp will see excursions along community trails, outdoor and landscape painting, making paints and prints out of natural materials, and creating pieces and installations with items found in nature such as leaves, twigs, rocks, pinecones, and more.

CARTOON CHAMPIONS
Stephanie is all about embracing the joy of cartooning! Picture this: a week where imaginations run wild, and dreams of creating unique and lovable characters come true. Campers will become the masterminds behind the magic! With the help of our super expert specialist, they will sketch, scribble, and shape their very own cartoon star – from their quirky quirks to their out-of-this-world adventures. These characters will then be taken to the next level where they’ll virtually leap off the page with vibrant colours and dynamic movement… possibly one day into the realm of animation! So sharpen your pencils and hold onto your funny bone, because the fun is sure to be a wild ride. Age 7-9
