ABOUT OUR CAMPS
All our art instructors and camp super-visors are experienced educators who encourage creativity, self-expression and development in the arts.
Your children will have the opportunity to create original art in a friendly, respectful environment where they are at the center of the learning process.
Our staff are certified to provide first aid and CPR and to adapt to your children’s learning style and needs. Camp assistants may not always be fluent in French.
