Chilliwack Cultural Centre offering new Summer Art Camp classes for older kids

Art journaling, children’s choir and circus camp open to kids age 11 to 15 this summer

The Chilliwack Cultural Centre has added a handful of new classes to give teenagers and pre-teens a break from summer boredom.

New to the Cultural Centre’s Summer Art Camps are two classes being offered for kids aged 11 to 13: Art Journaling, where students will learn many mixed media techniques to fill their journal; and Children’s Choir, where they will get to sing as part of a choir.

For those ages 11 to 15, Circus Camp is also opening the world of performance up with Circus West, where they will focus on juggling, acrobatics, human pyramids, the tight wire and unicycling.

Children’s Choir for kids aged 11 to 13 runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the fourth week (July 29 to Aug. 2). In week six, Art Journaling for 11- to 13-year-olds runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Aug. 12 to 16). These classes are $112.50 for each week.

Circus Camps for 13- to 15-year-olds runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and for those 11 to 13, it runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 12 to 16. This week-long class is $225.
