Camp Creative Overview 2022

399 Seymour River Pl, North Vancouver, BC V7H 1S6
7 weeks of Camps in July and August
North Van Arts strives to create ‘more than just a kids camp‘ We ask our young artists to think beyond the walls of our camp venue to discover, learn and wonder about how art can shape our future.

We have continued to explore themes such as; Eco-art, environmental stewardship, public art, nature, surface design, landscapes, set design, upcycling, tie-dye, Community, using a variety of mediums such as; storytelling, drama, music, foraged nature, clay, paint, fabric, textiles, felting, homemade inks, drawing, collage, stencil.

No two camps are the same, so pick one, pick two or join us for the whole summer!

All our camps are located at MapleWood House – 399 Seymour River Pl, North Vancouver, BC V7H 1S6
