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

Far more than an ordinary camp, Ross Creek gives your child all the advantages of an amazing art program with the rec and atmosphere of a camp all on an incredible site overlooking the Bay of Fundy.

​With organic gardens and professional artist studios, for city kids from around the world or country kids from down the road, Ross Creek provides an unrivaled program.

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 exploring the world of making, or make-believe, drumming or dancing, making movies, or making monsters on paper,  our camps have something for every kid! Kids get outside each day, and explore our gorgeous landscape as part of their program. 

Our Intermediate campers have a choice of continuing with thematic weeks or beginning to explore a particular art form in more depth, learning from our professional artists and gaining new skills while still focussed on the creative exploration of the world, through the arts.

We’ll spend the day focusing on the idea of home, looking at architecture of homes around the world and throughout history, and then design our own, building a model by the end of the day!
