Oh! Canary is so excited to introduce Camp Canary for ages 4- 8! We're hosting Monday through Thursday half- day camps over 5 weeks of summer, from June 25- August 2nd, 2018.
Each week at Camp Canary artists will explore an engaging theme, listed below. Campers will make creations daily using diverse materials to explore and express their ideas. We'll stretch our imaginations, sing silly songs, have dance parties, paint our hands, read great books, and make- make- make!
A healthy snack is included, and we'll walk down the block to Memorial Park daily for lunch, fresh air, and open play daily. 9:00 am drop- off is available, and we offer 10% sibling discount.
Modern Dollhouse Design FULL
During this week artists will build and assemble a modern dollhouse kit crafted by local woodworking organization Maplewoodshop! Once their houses are built, we’ll design an interior blueprint and plan out wall colors and furniture layout. We’ll paint walls and apply wallpaper, build our own mini furniture from an assortment of interesting materials, create mini art work, rugs and of course peg dolls to play with in their new digs. April 9- 12, 2018 10am- 2pm OR June 25- 28, 2018 9:30 am- 1:30 pm. $300 + $30 Dollhouse Kit Fee.
Making with Nature
Summer and nature go hand in hand! There's so many textures, smells, and colors to explore in the wild. During our week together, artists will investigate concepts and projects with an emphasis on how we can use nature to create. We'll spend lots of time outdoors working with the elements. We'll explore light with sun prints and earth with clay and nature installations. We'll dye fabric with botanicals and things will get magical when we create potions with natural florals and fragrances. So much more.! July 9- 12, 2018 9:30am- 1:30 pm. $300.
Rocket Ships & Shooting Stars FULL
During this week at camp we’ll explore the final frontier. We’ll build rocket ships, print constellations, make sun prints, and paper mache a collaborative solar system and mural. It’ll be out of this world! July 16-19, 2018 9:30am- 1:30 pm. $300.
Little Architects FULL
During this camp week, we’ll be checking out a lot of diverse architecture throughout the world. We’ll build clay huts, make our own kid sized teepee, paint and draw skyscrapers from observation, look at work by Gaudi, Buckminster Fuller, Lloyd Wright, Zaha Hadid, and Frank Gehry, and take these works to inspire our own 2d and 3d buildings. July 23- 26, 2018 9:30 am- 1:30 pm. $300.
Things that ZOOM
Does your child love vehicles? It’s a common passion for the younger crowd, and we’ll play a lot with that interest throughout this week of mini- camp. We’ll do lots of painting with tracks, build vehicles from recycled materials, work on collaborative train tracks, and explore the STEAM concepts of force and motion through experiments like painting with marbles, catapulting marshmallows, and creating ramps for our vehicles. July 30- August 2, 2018 9:30-1:30pm. $300.
