Typical Schedule:
A typical day starts with campers arriving between 8:30-9:30 am, during which time, there is supervised play in the Co-Operator’s Hall. The scheduled arts activities begin at 9:30, typically two activities before lunch and two activities after lunch. Lunch is supervised in the Canada Company Hall and followed by supervised outdoor play. Because we go outside, please ensure your child has adequate clothing for a variety of weather situations. Scheduled arts activities wrap up at 3:30, and campers can be picked up between 3:30-4:30 pm. Those children who are signed up for additional post-camp care can be picked up before 5:30 pm. On Friday, there is a showing in the Co-Operator’s Hall for family and friends, where the campers demonstrate some of the things they have learned during the week. All artwork can be taken home at that time. Check out our video showcasing some camp highlights!

Subsidies: Guelph Dance offers full and partial subsidies for those in need. Please contact Leslie Fisher for more details.

Camps fill up fast, so we recommend early registration!

*Campers will be grouped by age to experience age-appropriate arts activities

What to Bring to Camp

Please ensure your child brings the following items to camp each day:

  • A nut-free lunch & two nut-free snacks
  • A labelled water bottle
  • Loose-fitting clothing that allows for freedom of movement and possible paint stains
  • Weather-appropriate clothing: part of lunch hour will be spent outside, so children may get muddy, snowy or wet – and anything in between.
