Blue Skies Kids Arts Camp – COVID-19 UPDATE 2021

Dear Blue Skies Kids Arts Camp enthusiasts and devoted fans;

Once again, due to the continued Covid-19 situation, Blue Skies in the Community has made the decision to cancel the Blue Skies Arts Camp held on the festival site. As the directors of the camp, we fully support this decision – the safety of everyone involved to run the camp as well as our precious campers themselves, takes priority in these uncertain times.

On a happier note – we want to keep the magic of the camp alive and will be offering a special virtual one-day event!  We will confirm the date with you soon. The day will be open to all camp enthusiasts – past, present and future! Stay tuned for more information on our first ever
Blue Skies Camp Virtual event.

Warmest Regards 

Jenn and Janine

Under the direction of Jenn Ayer and Janine DeVries, fifty children will participate in five days of workshops and activities which are led by experienced instructors who skillfully adapt their work to the beautiful Blue Skies Festival outdoor site. This Day Camp is located North of Sharbot Lake, ON. near the small village of Clarendon.

Accessibility and Blue Skies Kids Arts Camp

We want as many children as possible to experience the magic of Blue Skies Kids 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 (blueskiescamp@gmail.com) for further information.
