Performing Arts Summer Camps

June 9th: Note Regarding COVID-19

We are thrilled to announce that our summer camps will go ahead as scheduled! Today the Provincial Government released the following:

“Based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and with strict health and safety protocols in place, the government is now enabling summer day camp programs across the province to reopen this summer. Strict health and safety guidelines were developed by the Ministry of Health in partnership with public health, the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development, and municipalities...”

In order to comply with the health and safety guidelines, we will be welcoming only a small group of campers each week. Be sure to reserve your child's spot today by completing the registration form on our REGISTER NOW page. Please note that payment is not required at this time. Once we have confirmed with you that there is space available in the camp of your choice, you will be contacted to arrange for payment. 

If you have previously registered or reserved your child's spot, we will contact you in the coming days to outline any program changes relating to the new guidelines and to confirm your enrollment.  

It's the most wonderful time of the year (in our opinions)!!

The countdown is on to our 2020 Summer Camp Season. We have an exciting lineup of programs and performances and we literally can't wait for it to start. Join in on the fun this summer!

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! With her astonishing wit, intelligence…and special powers, Matilda impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace! Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is sure to thrill and delight children and adults alike with its story of a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. 

The budding performers will benefit from the exciting diversity of daily workshops in vocal, acting and dance training, led by theatre, music, dance and teaching professionals. But that's not all! They will also participate in the preparation of production crafts, as they prepare for their performance on the last day of camp. Costumes and materials are included!

Musical Theatre Camp

Ages 11** and up

“We Will Rock You” tells the story of a future Earth where globalization has eliminated all creativity.  Armed only with a powerful, instinctive belief in the power of rock, a boy names Galileo and a girl called Scaramouche look to overthrow the evil Globalsoft Corporation and its Machiavellian matriarch, the Killer Queen. Together with their ramshackle band of misfits, the Bohemians, Galileo and Scaramouche look to turn back the tide of plastic pop and return to a rock and roll golden age they call their Rhapsody. Will they succeed – or will the Ga Ga Cops capture them and consign them to oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye? 

Participants will sing, dance and act their way through the popular songs of Queen in this creative, challenging and fun two-week camp program led by theatre, music, dance and teaching professionals. The budding performers will benefit from the exciting diversity of daily workshops in vocal, acting and dance training as they prepare for their full-length performance at the end of the 2-week session

Theatre Camp

Ages 8** and up

We are thrilled to announce this year’s production, James & the Giant Peach as our Summer Theatre Camp production. A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl’s story comes hilariously to life in this delightful play that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. Meet James, the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm, as James’ mean Aunt Spiker and cruel Aunt Sponge come to a suitable sticky end.

Taught in a fun and creative atmosphere by theatre professionals, participants will be led step by step through the rehearsal process, as they focus on acting, comedy, singing, dancing and staging. All actors will receive a speaking role and all levels of acting ability are welcome. But that's not all! Children will also participate in daily, stimulating, performance-based theatre workshops including improvisation, clowning, puppetry, masks, magic, and music as well as making production crafts for their performances. The camper's efforts will be rewarded with the rich sound of applause as they present their full-length performance on the final Friday of our 2-week session.

Costumes, sets, props and all materials are included.

Offered: Tuesday August 4th to Friday August 14th
