So you forgot to register your kids for summer camp. Big deal. Sloth is not a sin.
Happily, UrbanArts still has a few spots available in their day camps.
Between July 26 and August 6, kids from 8–14 can attend the Community Arts Experience camp. Lennox Cadore, the program manager, says that the first week of the camp will be devoted to environmental leadership. “We’re integrating the environment with the arts”.
From August 9 to August 20, UrbanArts will be running a visual arts camp called the “Legacy Arts Explore Camp”. They will have field trips and fun daily workshops led by professionals and emerging artists.
All the programs are free; the money has come from the United Way, the City of Toronto, and an anonymous private donor.
Cadore says that UrbanArts is running the programs for free “to provide an opportunity for young people in the area. We’re creating an opportunity too for parents to leave their kids in a highly-supervised environment.”
He says the program is “open to everybody. We get a real mix of backgrounds. We have people from both sides of Weston’s tracks.”
You can register for the programs by contacting UrbanArts at (416) 241-5124.
