The Y is offering a new arts camp in collaboration with Concordia University

YMCAs of Québec - March 15 2019

The YMCAs of Québec are happy to partner with Concordia University to launch a new arts camp in downtown Montréal!

This new camp combines Concordia’s Fine Arts expertise with the YMCAs of Québec’s long camp tradition to allow kids to immerse themselves in the arts and discover new modes of expression and creation.

Young participants will enjoy at least 20 hours of artistic exploration per week in the famous university’s ultramodern facilities as well as lots of beloved Y camp games and activities. Online registration starts March 25 — visit our website again to register your future artists!

Six programming options are available:

Introduction to Visual Arts for ages 5-6 and 7-8

Children in this program will get an opportunity to experiment with different forms of visual expression: painting, drawing, collage, clay, etc.

Theatrical Exploration for ages 9-12

This program is a great way for young dreamers to have fun while exploring theatrical creation, the basics of character creation and staging.

Theatrical Creation for ages 13 and older

Participants in this program will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in the creation of a collective work by developing characters, scripts and staging, while also exploring more technical aspects in a range of theatre workshops.

Dance for ages 9-12 and 13 and older
