Help your child’s knowledge take flight as they learn all about the local birds. This summer camp focuses on understanding and appreciating the life cycles, behaviour and beauty of our native feathered friends. Campers can observe them in their natural habitat via the birding routes/houses on Leighton Art Centre property. In addition they will make crafts dedicated to these amazing animals by getting creative with feathers, twigs and clay. Come spread your artistic wings with us!

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
