Registration for Summer Camps Opens on April 18th!

New this summer: Combine your love of art and curiosity for science.

NSCAD's School of Extended Studies has collaborated with the Discovery Centre to bring you art camps that include a specialized, hands on workshop at the Discovery Centre. The workshops align thematically with our Art camps enhancing the learning experience. The field trips will also include time for free exploration of the New Discovery Centre's state of the art facilities.

Our camps include all materials, lunch supervision, early drop-off (8:30am), and late (5:00pm) pick-up. Students are each given a free NSCAD t-shirt to encourage an uninhibited art practice. Lunchtimes are not only supervised, they offer creative and engaging activities for kids of all skills levels!

Visit the Summer Camp Exhibition,  Port Loggia Gallery, NSCAD University, to see work created by the campers throughout the entire Summer!
