​We’re gearing up for a fantastic summer full of all the arts. SummerArts Camp at Ross Creek is dedicated to fully engaging your child and giving them amazing new skills.

At Ross Creek, we provide an amazing art week 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. Our youngest campers explore the theme of the week through a variety of arts, outdoor adventures, and skill development. Play and creative exploration are the hallmarks of our junior program, setting them up for a lifetime of magic and wonder. 

SummerArts day camps are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm; Campers ages 7+ can add Thursday overnight as an option. Limited bussing is available on a first come basis.
