Piano Program - minimally two lessons per week. All students will acquire the basic skills to playing the piano by the end of the camp

The piano is the kind of all musical instruments. It is important for students to acquire the basic skills of playing the piano, from which they can easily extrapolate these skills (including motor skills, co-ordination, and reading of musical notation) to other instruments of their choice.  In our summer camps, all students will have minimally two group piano classes per week. They will learn the basic skills to playing the piano by the end of the camp session.

Children will learn the basics of keyboard technique—including healthy posture, hand positions, and fluidity of movement. Basic concepts of music notation and rhythm will also be introduced. They will also participate in group ensembles where keyboard technique is cultivated in a musical atmosphere of joy and excitement.

Children will be guided through demonstrations, thematic improvisations, duo performances, and playing with ensembles. Along the way, the children will learn familiar masterpieces.


Flute - Sylvia N.

Learners will be introduced to flute as a woodwind instrument, and also learn about how sounds are made. Students will experience a performance of the instrument, as well as getting hands on experience on this beautiful instrument.


Violin & Cello

Learners are introduced to the violin as an important stringed instrument as both a solo and ensemble instrument. Campers will have hands on experience with a violin, and learn about the special characteristic of the instrument.



To introduce campers to the Celtic harp, and to acquire hands on experience on the instrument.  Discover this beautiful instrument with a history of more than 5 thousand years.



To cultivate in learners a sense of the guitar, and also explore the possibilities of using it as a solo and ensemble instrument. Students with previous experience in guitar will be able to advance their skills by learning new repertoire and new techniques.


Clarinet & Saxophone  / Trumpet

The global sense of musical exploration is encouraged by exposing students to a diversity of instruments, including the guitar, clarinet and saxophone.

Through exposure to high calibre concert artists, our campers can be inspired by quality music performances as well as develop a deep appreciation for the arts.


* NEW:  Introduction to other Exotic Musical Instruments

We also introduce children to a variety of exotic instruments of the world including bagpipe, pan-flute, theremin / Ondes Martenot.


Broadway Musicals, Singing

Students participate in an innovative program of singing, acting and dance that will introduce them to the variety and excitement of Broadway theatre. Activities include choral singing for musical theater, acting and movement through dance. Children will learn choreography and develop story telling in ensemble groups.

The program will foster in the children a sense of community through inspiring, interesting, fun and educational activities. They will learn techniques that will help them develop concentration, coordination, listening, as well as the ability to hear harmonies, read music and play creatively.



Dance, as a universal language, cuts across all cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Dance creates a platform that allows stories, feelings and emotions to be exchanged freely without the limitations of words. In the summer program, children will explore different styles within dance including jazz, salsa, ballet, hip hop, contemporary, and others. The goal is to expose children to the different qualities and flavors of each dance style. By experiencing a large variety of dance styles, the children will expand their vocabulary of physical expression and discover for themselves which styles they most personally identify with.



This program provides children with an especially rich and full experience of the graphic arts. They will learn basic techniques in drawing and in manipulating paint, brushes and tools as a medium for self-expression. The hands-on activities are specially designed to be age appropriate. The students will discover their favorite themes for painting through exposure to a range of subjects including land and seascapes, still life and flowers. They will learn about color theory, composition, drawing with pencil, painting with watercolors and water-based oil paints.
The goal of this program is to help children develop a deep understanding for the rich varieties of expression that are possible through the graphic arts and to give them confidence to create in this medium.


Cartoon Drawing

Student learn the basics of cartoon drawing, and create their own stories. Young students develop the skills of learning about relative proportions, scale, and portraying expression through simple shapes.


Digital Photography & Videography 

Connections are made in the world of visual arts and music through digital photography and music appreciation. Through linking up the sense (auditory and visual), students develop greater acuity of perception in their environment. In digital photography classes, students will learn about basic concepts of photography such as composition, perspective, as well as develop skills necessary for day to day photography needs.


Music Appreciation

In music appreciation, students will learn about the intangibles of music - from how to enjoy music more through listening to different aspects of music (melody, harmonies, colors, rhythm, interpretation), to actually exploring the inner workings of the grand piano and other instruments.


Culinary Arts 

Students will learn to prepare basic foods with the help of our camp counsellors. Campers learn about basic hygiene and safety in the process of food preparation, procedural planning, knowledge about basic nutrition for various food groups, concepts of being "green" in disposal of left overs, as well as experience  the joy of sharing foods.


Arts and Crafts / Origami

Origami is a three-dimensional art of paper folding. This helps children develop co-ordination and spatial and visualization skills. It is also a creative way for children to develop patience and dexterity. Children learn to fold paper animals (such as frogs, birds, fox), latterns, and three-dimensional structures with the assistance of our instructors.



Yoga offers a safe and moderate level of exercise for children. It offers stretching and movement activities that are gradual and are not likely to cause stress and strain to young bodies. It is also a fun class for students to develop a level of physical awareness towards their bodily movements, which is essential for development of high order co-ordination skills.


At the end of each two-week session camp (for summer camp) there will be selected presentations of class work for an invited audience.



Our buffet lunch menu will focus on nutrition and variety while taking into account taste and appearance, which usually dominate children’s preferences.
