March Break Day Camps

March 13-17, 2023

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. 

2023 Camper Kits will be sent out to those who register a week prior to the start of camp!

All March Break Day Camps run from 9:00-5:00 and include morning snack and a homemade lunch.
$75 per day or $375 for all 5 days of fun.
For more info about bursaries and financial assistance please email Ian at: education@artscentre.ca .

The Arts Bus runs during March Break and will travel throughout the Valley to make it easier for parents to get their children to Ross Creek. There are only 6 seats, and they are first come first served. Bus service is an additional $20 a day, or $100/week regardless of whether it’s taken both ways. The Bus fills fast, so please call to check on availability.

​Bursaries and Scholarships
We are pleased to offer full and half bursaries and scholarships for students who need financial aid. Bursary applications require letters of reference, so please apply early. Bursary decisions are made by a committee and are based on need and merit. We regret that we cannot give full bursaries to all students who apply, but try to assist as many children and families as we can  through the generosity of corporations, businesses, individuals and some schools.

​Bursary applications for March Break are available by clicking here. 

If you are in a position to help send a child to camp for March Break, you can make a dedicated donation towards the bursary program.

The deadline for submissions is January 15 for March Break Bursaries
