General Program Description of 2012 Summer Day Camp

The Lambda summer camp is intended for students aged 4.5 and up. The goal is to provide learners a summer of fun and artistic education through an immersion in the arts.

Campers will be exposed to an array of music and fine arts disciplines where they can explore their artistic niche.

Upon completion of the camp, children will have explored an array of music and fine arts disciplines, and hence can continue to take lessons in greater depth in their areas of their chosen interest.


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

Piano Program

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.


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.



Harp –  Annabelle Renzo

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.  



Guitar –  Alexandre Ethier

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.



Broadway Musicals, Singing  - Anick Pelletier

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.



Graphics arts and Manga Drawing

This program provides children with an especially rich and full experience of the graphic arts. They will learn basic techniques in drawing 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 drawing through exposure to a range of subjects including landscape, faces, chibis,  animals, everyday objects, and favorite animated characters. At the end of the session, students will also be shown the digital graphics processing procedures and techniques to create a comic series.

The goal of this program is to help children explore the joys of artistic expression through drawing.



Digital Photography, Videography, Music Appreciation - Angela Chan

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.

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.



Lambda Summer Camp food

Our buffet lunch menu will focus on nutrition and variety while taking into account taste and appearance, which usually dominate children’s preferences.
** The lunch program is offered as an option, but will not be available to students with food allergies.
