Puppet-making, sculpture and environmental art are just some of the activities that Cowichan Valley kids can enjoy during a series of six Art Fanatics summer camps in July and August.

Exploring a different theme each week with different mediums from wild plants to wood and metal, the groups will develop new skills and show how art expression can have an impact. Kids will look at creating art from materials that are often forgotten. Each day will have a time for outside play and each week there will be a visit to the waterpark.

Age: 6-10 (with the exception of the performing arts camp)
