Oil Painting Camp
July 5 to July 7
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

 

The Imagination Studio, Ashley Green  

SUMMER OIL PAINTING WITH ASHLEY IS A SERIES OF NATURE-BASED PAINTING CLASSES. KINDA LIKE THE GROUP OF SEVEN FOR KIDS

Mornings feel magical as we ground into our easel space, close our eyes and notice the sounds of nature all around us. Together in our painting community, we will learn [real deal] painting techniques, colour theory, self-expression and all the fancy artsy things that will help unlock your child’s creative potential. Each day we will create an entirely new painting, starting fresh each morning. Students will be guided through specific painting compositions and bit by bit we will transform a blank canvas/board into beautiful expressions of landscape/nature inspired paintings. Art that lasts a lifetime. And yes! Your kids will create beautiful oil paintings in these classes!
Three day camps are awesome because it gives families total weekend and long weekend flexibility without missing a day of camp!

Big Canoe Project, Tom Thwaits

Get set for a week of adventure, history, beaches and wildlife! Campers have the opportunity to hop aboard the big canoe for waterfront tours of Meaford and the surrounding areas. We'll be taking water quality readings to help out with citizen science initiatives, learning how to turn a big canoe on a dime and discovering why they're the perfect craft for the Bay. Daily float plans will be available and customized daily to take into account wind and weather. All adventures meet at the Meaford Harbour Pavilion (unless there is inclement weather) and will further afield as the week progresses and paddlers' skills improve.

Camp will meet at Beautiful Joe Park when conditions render us unable to navigate on Georgian Bay.  Alternate activities will be provided.

All guides are certified with the Ontario Recreational Canoe & Kayak Association (ORCKA), First Aid, CPR & the operation of VHF radio.

Ledge Leadership, Melri & Mike Wright

If you are a youth aged 15-18 and you have questions about what you want to do after high school, this camp is for you!

This experience will help you: 
 - Discover your natural abilities
 - Gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, challenges, and interests
 - Develop a language to describe your abilities
 - Use your abilities to help you at school now
 - Explore education and work opportunities after high school
 - Connect with other youth who are also thinking about the future

You’ll leave camp with a written report about your abilities, a clearer idea about next steps for school & career, and a certificate of completion. The camp will run for half days, Monday to Thursday, giving you the chance to work and also get an early start to the weekend. 

On Monday, you will complete the Highlands Ability Assessment, a series of online work samples that will give you objective information about yourself, including how you naturally solve problems, connect with others, and communicate. This first day of camp will be a little longer to give you time to complete all of the online work.

On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, you will be part of workshops to help you understand your natural abilities report and explore how your abilities relate to your future. These workshops include activities, discussion, and times to reflect. 

Participants will need to bring a laptop and headphones on Monday. If you don’t have access to a laptop, don’t worry, we’re meeting at the library so you can borrow a computer there. Please let us know at the time of registration if you need a computer and/or headphones.
