Arts Camps for Kids and Teens

Camp programs and activities celebrating the arts


Does your child enjoy drama, acting, fashion, music, dance, game design or other types of performing arts? An arts camp may be the perfect solution!

What are arts camps?

Arts camps give your son or daughter the freedom to discover and nurture their interests with a range of artistic endeavors. Many facilities provide an extremely integrated approach to their programs to fully immerse campers in an imaginative environment that will inspire and develop their creative passions.

Why attend an arts camp?

Children of all ages can benefit from time spent at this type of camp whether they have a specific area of interest or want to try something new in another area of the arts. Day or overnight camp, your child will gain important life skills while thriving in a highly artistic atmosphere.

Find the right arts camp

To narrow down the search for the right arts camp for your child, begin by deciding what’s most important – location, cost, programs, special needs, etc. – and take those factors into consideration as you filter through your list of camps. Visit the camp’s website for an information kit or FAQ section and don’t be afraid to contact camps directly with specific questions about their regulations, staff qualifications, schedules and any other concerns.

Some additional questions you may want to consider, depending on the type of arts camp, include:

  • Will my child be doing their chosen activity the entire time or will they alternate between activities?
  • Does my child need experience in the arts to attend? If so, how much experience?
  • Are campers grouped by age, arts skill or integrated?
  • What is the ratio of consellors to campers?
  • What are the qualifications of the counsellors?
  • If professionals visit the camp, how often do they visit and stay to interact with the campers?
