Summer Art and Drama Camps at MERA!

Art Camp at MERA is always a hit. This year’s theme is The Wonderful World of Colour and Design. Children will explore all the beautiful colours and combination of colours in our own unique designs. We will create projects involving how we each interpret the wonderful world surrounding us.

Projects such as dioramas, landscapes and abstract designs will come alive with colours created by paints, markers, oil pastels and colour transfers with tissue paper.

Once again the camp will be lead by 3 generations of experienced artists. Jan Griffiths, her daughter Heather Vriends and daughter /granddaughter Finnlee Vriends are returning to help your child enter a world of wonder and creativity.

We offer 2 weeks of Art Camp. The first week is for ages 5-9 July 10-14. The second week is for ages 9-14 August 7-11.

Please Note: The July 10-14 camp is now full.

Registration is filling up quickly so please sign your child up soon.

Drama Camp at MERA will continue this summer the week of August 21-25 for ages 10-14. This year, come and celebrate your unique, weird and wacky selves at Circus Camp! This camp is lead by a passionate team of performance artists. Children will have the opportunity to delve into the worlds of their creativity as they create their own personas through the art of clown with Alexis Scott. They will also learn circus tricks through hoop dance with Meghan Robinson. This multimedia camp will touch on performance skills as well as crafting and making props for the performance at the end of camp.

The camp fees are $200 per child for MERA members or $220 per child for non- members. Please note: grandchildren of MERA members are entitled to members’ rate.
