Summer Camp 2021

Fun, Smart, Messy...and a little different this year!

We are excited to announce Summer Camp is back at the RMG!

While we intend to recreate the magic of our past camps we will also be mindful of the current COVID situation.  We will be making necessary adjustments and doing our utmost to ensure health and safety of participants and staff. We will be carefully monitoring the situation and following protocols and guidelines outlined by the Durham Region Health Department and the Province’s Chief Medical Officer. Should we be unable to offer onsite camps, we will do our best to offer alternative options to keep your child busy with art making experiences this summer. If we must cancel summer camps, full refunds will be issued.

Camps will run weekly from July 12 to August 27 from 9am to 4pm.

Cost: $180 Members/$190 Non-Members
