MARCH BREAK

2022 ACTIVITIES

MARCH 14-18, 2022- SPACES AVAILABLE!
We are looking forward to a  fabulous week at Ross Creek’s March Break Arts Camp for children and teens. There is something great for everyone aged 4-16 thanks to the great volunteers, artist faculty, staff, chef and of course kids and their families!  

At Ross Creek we provide an amazing art day taught by professional artists and a great camp experience for kids on our 178 acres of field and forest, led by our fabulous counsellors. Whether searching for the Creekster, creating a masterpiece or making new friends, our camps have something for every kid! We offer programs in dance, theatre, music and art. Kids can come for a day or for the whole week of adventure and art.

Please note, we do take 4 year olds if they seem ready for a full day and are close to turning 5. 

2022 Camper Kits will be sent out to those who register/posted here soon!

All March Break Day Camps run from 9:00-5:00 and include snacks and a homemade lunch.
$75 per day or $335 for all 5 days of fun. For more info about bursaries and financial assistance please email Ian at: education@artscentre.ca .
