March Break Day Camp
Ages 12-16 : explore themes through science, drama, music and art!
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.
Receive an introduction to the dark-room and get inspired by some of the great photographers from around the world! Develop your own creative vision through learning about composition, and shooting techniques through the lens of digital cameras (learn how to use your own, or borrow one of ours). Campers will experiment with traditional and contemporary photography techniques as they explore the inspiring visual surroundings Ross Creek has to offer.
