Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have very limited spaces available. We will try and spend as much time as possible outside (weather allowing) we will encourage more hand washing and ensure that kids are keeping safe distancing when sharing sensory bins. Our sensory bins will consist of only antibacterial materials like shaving cream, soap, and water, etc.  (don't worry we are very creative with our sensory bins!) Our cleaning procedures were always impeccable (who else washes walls!) but we have switched our cleaning to all antiseptic products to ensure a more sanitized environment.

Reserve your spot now and we will contact you closer to the date for a health screening questionnaire that must be completed before campers are welcomed on the first day.

Art Classes

We help children gain key art skills, increase self-esteem as they build new skills, and deepen connections to their talent and technique. Each week will cover a different theme; for example a famous artist, space, fairy tales, fantasy characters, and more.

Book a private art class in a safe space for your children to continue their learning experience and add art to their curriculum. Students involved in the arts have tremendous academic benefits compared to students without exposure to the arts. Art inspires kids to excel, increases motivation, improves attitudes, reduces anxiety and improves overall academic performance.


We cater to each individual child based on their age, skill, and attention span. We encourage free creativity while teaching techniques in a structured environment, we give older kids more challenging art levels and responsibility, we encourage the little ones to seek help from the older kids creating a community and cooperative space. 

All Ages | $125 for 5 kids. +$25/participant with a maximum of 8 kids

Book your private class for a 60 min art session with half an hour of creative time and an hour of structured art class.  A perfect class to add some colour and creativity to your their learning experience.
