Summer Art Camps for kids sparks the imagination

Give your kids a creative, artistic, and amazing school vacation this summer with the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s Summer Art Camps for Kids. Break that summer boredom with the fun, and flexible classes that offer an exciting range of artistic activities, sure to inspire young imaginations.

Running from July 10 to Aug.18, and filled with arts and crafts to clay, dance, music, and performance classes, the Summer Art Camps are the perfect fit for all kinds of young artists. Children who enjoy bringing things to life in clay, or just love getting their hands dirty, can take an exciting adventure into the world of ceramics. The young musicians in your life can have an opportunity to pick up an instrument, and learn the basic chords and melodies, while those crafty kids have the perfect creative opportunity to try printmaking, sewing, origami, and even sculpting. With lots of different classes to pick and choose from, your kids not only have the chance to try new things, but to also explore and learn more about the activities they’re already interested in.

With the simple class schedule, the Summer Art Camps are an easy way to relieve the stress of busy parents. They will make your kids’ summer break something truly special, as they explore their creative side.

The camps will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. with supervised breaks, Monday to Friday, for five weeks between July 10 and August 18. Each day is split into six blocks of 65 minute sessions, with four different classes running in each time slot. Choose one class per time slot and your child will take part in that activity at that time for the full week. Sign up for a single class, two per day, or for a full week of fun and creativity!

Each class costs $37.50. Registering for a class means your child will participate in that activity at that time from Monday to Friday, meaning you get five and creative sessions for $37.50.

The Centre’s Summer Art Camps are available for kids age 5–11, and with sessions broken into categories for 5 – 7 and 8 – 11-year-olds, your kid will get the perfect art experience catered to their age.

The brochure for Summer Art Camps is now available.
