Centauri Summer Arts Camp is an overnight summer camp that offers all the traditional magic of residential camp... but with a focus on the arts!
Located in the Niagara Region, within easy driving distance of Toronto and close to the US border, Centauri Summer Arts Camp welcomes boys and girls aged 8-18 for a summer of arts activities, creative inspiration, personal growth and summer fun. We have a 30-acre central campus surrounded by 170 acres of forest, fields and meadows. We have excellent accommodations: three dorm buildings with indoor washrooms and recreation rooms; a lovely dining hall, sports facilities, a wellness centre and a small pool. Arts facilities include indoor and outdoor theatres, music rooms, art studio, graphic arts lab, dance studio with sprung floor, writing room, film studios and rehearsal rooms.
At Centauri Summer Camp for the Arts, you can choose from 40 different arts camp programs, all taught by experienced and enthusiastic instructors. Are you an aspiring young writer? Then try writing camps which focus on Playwriting, Screenwriting, Poetry or Fiction. Want to hone your skills as an actor? We have acting camps in Film Acting, Theatre Camps, Musical Theatre, Improvisation, Stage Combat camps and more. Is Fine Art your thing? Our visual art camps include Painting, Digital Photography, Digital Art, Comic Creation, Sculpture, Animation and Design. Would you like to learn about Film-Making, Singing, Songwriting, Music or Dance? We have camps for all those, too! Immerse yourself in the arts camp of your choice and create films, readings, performances and exhibitions to share with your audience on the final day.
A Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program is also available. Centauri's Leadership program is a demanding exploration of the role of leadership – in society, careers, the arts, summer camps and in the world of teaching. By working towards our leadership certification, campers discover more about themselves and their place within the world.
