Camps run from July 17 to July 22

Mighty Monsters - Ages 5-7
Did someone say “MONSTERS?” Don’t worry! We don’t have any scary monsters at Ross Creek. We’ve only got the friendly kind around these parts, and junior campers will spend the week learning about the best kind of friendly monsters and creating new ones! Through art, myths, theatre and visual arts, campers will create their own masterpieces. Coupled with our amazing traditional summer camp atmosphere it is going to be an amazing week for all! At the end of the week, there will be a camp wide art show for family and camp.

Brave Beowulf - Ages 8-10
This is our multidisciplinary camp, exploring theatre, puppetry, music, visual arts and more all around the story of Beowulf! This warrior, hero and slayer of monsters and dragons is a great subject for a camp that explores all the arts. Intermediate campers will spend this week exploring the myth and mystery of this great hero and even get to see the play and meet the designers of the Two Planks and a Passion Theatre production of Beowulf as adapted by Rick Chafe. The week will accumulate with a performance. Combined with our great traditional summer camp atmosphere this week will be a keeper!

Frame 2 Fame - Ages 8-10
Come join us for the week and ANIMATE! Learn how to make an object appear to move on its own. You will explore stop motion and claymation techniques and create some cool video animation. Alongside our great traditional summer camp atmosphere this week will get you talking for years to come! Kids who have animated before will learn new techniques and beginners will get all the guidance they need. At the end of the week there will be a premiere for family and camp.

Passion Theatre - Ages 11+
The Ross Creek Centre for the Arts and Two Planks & a Passion Theatre proudly bring you Passion Theatre! Taught by theatre professionals, this is a great chance to become the actor you knew you could be. Senior campers will get the best instruction in improv skills, script work, collective collaboration and auditioning techniques. Combined with our great traditional summer camp atmosphere this week will put you on the right road to becoming an actor someday, or at least having a hilarious and fabulous time. At the end of the week there will be a showing for family and camp.

Graphic Designer - Ages 11+
For all our new designers that want to explore art through computers this is a great program that will immerse Senior campers into the cool world of design. With our professional designer at the Creek, campers will explore computer-based graphic design and how to use it while also examining work of the world's great designers. Alongside our great traditional summer camp atmosphere this is going to be a great week with lots of new skills learned!
