Do you want your kids to dive into creativity? Are they looking for exciting new adventures? Campers are encouraged to interact with art in fun and playful ways as they share their thoughts, and express their ideas through art. We will get hands on with some messy and imaginative art making activities that will truly inspire all budding artists. Spaces are limited.

Here’s how March Break Camp will look this year:

  • The RMG will remain closed to public on Mondays – only camp participants onsite
  • Drop-off between 8:45am and 9am
  • Small camp cohorts
  • Mask friendly camp for staff, volunteers and participants
  • Rigorous cleaning throughout the day
  • Pick-up at 4pm

COVID -19 protocols and guidelines

  • We will continue to follow COVID -19 protocols and guidelines outlined by the Durham Region Health Department and the Province’s Chief Medical Officer. Our goal is to ensure the health and safety of staff and participants, and create an enjoyable experience.
  • If we must cancel camp due to public health restrictions, we will issue full refunds. Cancellations by participants will be subject to our cancellation policy.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have questions or concerns that aren’t addressed here, please feel free to contact the Learning Department. More detailed information about camp will be sent to registered families prior to the first day of camp.

I see that you do online registrations, can I register in-person or over the phone?

While we prefer online registrations, we do accept in-person (cash, debit, VISA and Mastercard) and phone registrations (VISA and Mastercard). There is a mandatory registration form that needs to be completed fully for each camper at the time of payment. These forms are reviewed by staff and documented in order to ensure we are aware of pertinent information. We may reach out to families if we have follow-up questions prior to camp.

Families who choose to make payment over the phone will be emailed a copy of the registration form. The form must be filled out and sent back by the first day of camp.

What is your maximum capacity?

15 campers maximum per camp.

What if I have a child that is outside the age range, can they still join?

All of our camps are geared specifically for children within the designated ages. In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, participants must fall within the indicated age range.

Are pre- and post-care available?

No, unfortunately, we are not able to offer this service.

Can I register for one or two days instead of the whole week?

Unfortunately, we ask families to commit to the full week as often our art making fun requires multiple days to complete (many requiring time to dry before paint or adding final details).

What type of activities have you planned, are campers outside at all?

Campers will be spending equal time in the Lookout and the Studio. The camp will have in-gallery interactive visits including looking activities, games, and sketching. Campers in the Studio and Lookout will have opportunities to create with a variety of mediums! We have a fully fenced in backyard, and if weather permits we will be spending lunch and snack breaks outside.

Do you provide snacks/lunch?

Parents are asked to pack a water bottle, peanut free snacks and lunch daily. There are two snack breaks and lunch is from 12-1pm.

What else might my child need to bring?

If you believe your child may need a change of clothes please provide that.  The Studio has fluctuating temperatures, and dressing in layers is suggested to account for this. Please ensure your child wears art friendly clothing and comfortable footwear.

What is the staff to camper ratio?

We aim for a minimum of 1 to 7 ratio.

Do you provide a “kiss and ride”?

Drop-off takes place from 8:45am – 9:00am. On the first day, we ask campers are signed in with a staff member in the front lobby. Families can choose to escort their camper to their “homeroom” or a camp staff member can ensure your child gets to their room.

Families may choose to do a “kiss and ride” drop off in the mornings at the front of the building Tuesday to Friday starting at 8:45am. 

We require all families to pick up their camper at the end of each day at 4pm. Only authorized adults will be allowed to sign out campers.
