We Create Great Summer Memories That Last a Lifetime

Welcome to Manotick Arts Camp

Summer Performance Arts Programs

Founded in 2000, the Manotick Arts Camp has provided summer performance arts programs to youth in Manotick and the surrounding aresa. Kids ages 6-17 have benefited from our programs designed to encourage creativity and instill confidence. We explore many branches of the arts including Drama, Dance, Instrumental and Vocal Music, and Visual Art, and our programs are taught by professional artists with years of pedagogical experience. The Manotick Arts Camp offers something for all. Whether you are exploring the arts for the first time, or simply looking to improve your skills, our team of teachers and counselors are dedicated to making our programs a great experience for you.

The goal of the summer program is to showcase the creativity of our students in a performance that is held at the end of the day camp. As well as learning new skills and techniques in all areas of the arts, MAC students will enjoy the mentorship of counselors and teachers who foster leadership and team building skills. Most of our students return every summer and it is always a great honor to see them again and catch up on what they have been doing over the past year. Many students of the Manotick Arts Camp are accepted into Arts programs at Canterbury and De La Salle High School. In addition, some of our former students are now pursuing various arts-related studies at university and return to spend their summers teaching at the camp. The Manotick Arts Camp is located in the beautiful historical setting of the village of Manotick close to Dickinson Square. Each day we actually walk past Watson's Mill on our way to Chris Bracken Field. We welcome all students ages 6-17. Whether you are a closet, budding or seasoned young artist, we encourage you to try out our latest programs. You will not regret it!

This program is for students who are looking for a creative challenge! Bring your performing arts skills and we’ll weave them into the fabric of the work that will be created by you! We will accept 13 students into the program. Over two weeks, mentored by artists, the Manotick Arts Camp Performance Troupe will be guided through a number of creationist techniques in Drama, Music and Movement to mount an integrated arts theatrical work to be performed at the end of the two weeks. The emphasis will be to polish existing skills and to exercise creativity while improving self confidence. The work created during these two weeks will become the core material for the Ottawa Fringe Festival the following year.


 

Ottawa Fringe Festival 2017!

Manotick Arts Camp Performance Troupe will be attending

We invite you to exercise your creativity to create a work of drama, music and movement to be performed at the Ottawa Fringe Festival this spring!

Students will be elaborating and adding to a work created by a core of Manotick Arts Camp Summer Performance Troupe students last summer. The emphasis will be on exploring a variety of creation techniques as well as working on drama and performance skills , establishing proper techniques for singing and developing core musicianship skills. The goal is to mount a show that is, at its heart, drawn from the ideas of the youth performing it.

Preference will be given to former Manotick Arts Camp students but please message us if you are interested in participating in the project and you have not previously attended the Manotick Arts Camp. We’d love to hear from you!
