Empower your child with a better understanding of environmental issues with this eco-friendly themed summer camp. Reduce, reuse and recycle is the name of the game, as campers learn about the importance of sustainability and how to apply these principles to their artwork by repurposing materials and reducing waste. A fantastic opportunity to teach future generations about the benefits of going green – while enjoying the stunning scenery of the Foothills.

About Summer Camp at Leighton Art Centre

Art & Nature Summer Camps, for kids aged 6*-14, offer campers a hands-on connection to art, nature and Alberta’s heritage. Each week during July and August, our campers are inspired to create in a wide variety of art forms while exploring our natural setting through nature hikes and outdoor games and activities.

Our historic Education Centre is set on 80 acres of breathtaking rural scenery 20 minutes from south Calgary. Working with small groups of campers, our skilled instructors will present daily activities that encourage creativity, exploration, learning and fun.

* campers must turn 6 by July 1, 2023 to participate in 2023
