Summer Arts Camp on Queen is all about experiential learning.
Our goal for each camp week is that youth will KNOW, GROW, and SHOW and, of course have fun participating and discovering more about themselves, art and their community. Each week will focus on a different social justice issue like bullying, racism, homelessness, or gender discrimination. Using the arts, campers will learn more and expand their knowledge of social justice issues. They will grow in understanding of how these issues affect their communities and show how art can bring awareness and change.
The HUB on Queen
All camps will be held at the The HUB at 4333 Queen St. in Niagara Falls provided by The Bridge community a caring, gracious group of people new to the Falls who are all about transforming local communities to be vibrant, supportive, alive, loving places.
The building provides the perfect space for displaying art and having various events throughout the year -- a gathering place in the community where people connect. Located across from city hall, it has access to the hall's green space and a park nearby. The space is warm and inviting with lots of room for your kids to work and play.
The Bridge is a new missional church community that desires to embrace and support the local community of Niagara Falls. The camp is in no way meant to impose religious beliefs, but rather afford a space for creativity and exploration of the arts and concerns of the day right in our own backyards. The Bridge desires to support and encourage healthy families and friendships. For more information on The Bridge go to www.thebridgenf.ca

A Great Opportunity for Your Child
Following with the goal of the Bridge to connect to the community through these camps, we will bring in local artists to instruct on weeks relevant to their art interests and creative ability.
We commit to providing a welcoming and inclusive space for campers to feel free to be themselves. Any bullying, harassment, or violence will not be tolerated and staff and volunteers will intervene into any conflict that arises.
