Summer Camp 2024 – Registration starts March 11 2024 at 9 am

Fine Arts Day Camp • 6-12 year olds

Join us this summer for another creative and inspiring artistic journey! Our 2024 theme is: In Motion!! Delve into a wide range of artistic techniques, experiment creatively, and make new friends in a warm and friendly atmosphere. At the VAC day camp, each morning starts with conversation to get to know each other, as well as some body movement, then we move on to an art class given by a professional art teacher. The afternoons include time outdoors, either at the park or at the swimming pool, followed by a collaborative art workshop.

Our students are placed in small, bilingual groups, according to their age. This ensures that each child receives individual attention and can be encouraged to advance at their own pace. Activities take place in our fully equipped and air-conditioned studios as well as at Westmount or Prince Albert Park, where outdoor games and physical activity complement the afternoon programme.

Registration fees are for one week of day camp, students may be registered for multiple weeks. New projects are introduced each week.

Special needs

We want to welcome each participant and ensure a harmonious integration of campers with special needs, therefore, your collaboration is very important. If your child has special needs, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss them with our staff so that we can best accommodate your child.


Each year, the Visual Arts Centre (VAC) offers subsidies to defray day camp fees. We accept applications through CLSC workers or Batshaw Youth and Family Centers, but we invite other local organizations working with youth or families to contact us if they wish to discuss the possibility of participating in this subsidy program at the VAC day camp.
