Summer Performance Arts Programs
Founded in 2000, the Manotick Arts Camp has provided summer performance arts programs to youth in Manotick and the surrounding area. 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, visual art, instrumental and vocal music, 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 two-week 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 Mullen Field. We welcome all students 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!
