Blue Skies Arts Camp 2018: July 23th-July 27th
Registration starts April 1st, 2018
Magical, creative, collaborative, and joyful, Blue Skies Arts Camp is for children, 7 – 13 years old, who thrive in arts-based environments. Under the direction of Jenn Ayer and Janine DeVries, fifty children will participate in five days of workshops and activities which focus on vocal and instrumental music, material and visual arts, dance, campcraft and drama. All campers participate each day in three workshops which are led by experienced instructors who skillfully adapt their work to the Blue Skies outdoor site. For further information on the workshops that are offered this year, please select Arts Camp tab above and select Workshops 2018. Workshops will be announced early 2018.
We provide leadership training along with valuable work experience for our Counsellors, Counsellors-In-Training (CITs) and student volunteers. The full-day camp takes place daily from July 23th to July 27th on the site of the Blue Skies Music Festival in Clarendon, north of Sharbot Lake, Ontario. If you have never been there, it is beautiful!
Cost: $ 250.00 per child

Accessibility and Blue Skies Arts Camp
We want as many children as possible to experience the magic of Blue Skies Arts Camp. We ask that parents and guardians take into account the physical geography of the camp site. Camp takes place on a very rugged piece of Ontario wilderness. The ground is hilly and uneven and the facilities are rustic. Both water and electricity are seriously limited (outhouses, no hot water and no electricity for personal use).
If your child has special needs, please contact Jenn and Janine for further information.
