The HCA Summer Camps are a great way for children and youth to get an enriching experience in the arts. We offer summer camps that give students experience in musical theatre, drama, visual arts, dancing, and music. Each camp week has a different theme, so students enrolling in multiple weeks of camp will always be working on new projects!

 

Kinder Arts Exploration: Dramatize stories, create artworks, and respond to music through movement and song.

Children’s Arts Exploration: Be creative with painting and printmaking, make music, jam with drums, play characters, tell stories, and dance.

Triple Threat: Children receive the enriching and inviting experience of learning how to sing, act and dance! With a new theme each session, students will work with a dedicated team of artist educators to learn new skills, grow in confidence and discover new passions.  (An introductory program is available for students in Gr. 1-3)

New! Dance, Dance, Dance! (Entering Gr. 1-3)
Campers will spend a week exploring various forms of dance and creative movement with the support of skilled Dance instructors. Improve confidence, coordination and make new friends along the journey.
 
New! Intensive Dance: (Entering Gr. 4-5, 6-7, 8-12)
Working with skilled dance instructors, this specialist camp offers the opportunity for more experienced dancers to improve skills and move beyond the basic technique of dance. *Prerequisite: students must be enrolled in dance a minimum of two years in a technique class of ballet, jazz or modern.

NEW! HCA Teen Creation Collective. Create. Act. Perform. Explore acting and devised theatre with two artist educators who are also professional actors/theatre-makers. Over the course of this summer intensive program, students will finesse creation and acting techniques by working together to co-create and perform a piece of devised theatre with fellow classmates and instructors. The intensive will culminate with a 10-day run of the developed piece as part of the Hamilton Fringe Festival.
