• We love Holiday camps!!!

    Our camps are the perfect way to spend the holidays. Our students explore a variety of dynamic themes whilst exploring visual arts activities including mixed media, painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, weaving and more. Now more flexible than ever, each camp can be a full day or half day option, and can be customised for 1-4 days. The camps are designed so that every hour of every day is unique, creative and engaging.

     

    We have both dynamic art camps and 'Immersive Theatrical Camps' that are across between a 4 day breakout room and dinner theatre.

     

    Please note that safe distancing measures will be in place. Children are to bring masks. Please take temperatures before you drop them off for their classes. Do not send them if they have flu or cold symptoms.

  • Check out our camps below... Book them through our customer portal.

    So much fun!!! Our 4 day Holiday Camps are offered as half day (3 hours) for $325 and full day (6.5 hours) for $500
