Welcome to Art In The Park!
Art In The Park is an outdoor, arts-based summer camp for children ages 6-12, located in the heart of Toronto at Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Under shady, one-hundred-year-old elm and maple trees, children make art, create drama productions, garden, sculpt, or play in the largest sandpit in the city. Each week, children participate in a variety of activities which may include sculpture, paper maché, woodworking, visual arts, beading and weaving, jewelry-making, drama, music, dance, gardening, sand and water play, sports, cooperative games, block play and much, much more!
About Art In The Park
Art in the Park began over 25 years ago as the result of a collaborative effort between Trinity Bellwoods Community Children’s Group/CARE and the City of Toronto’s Trinity Community Recreation Centre. The camp is located outdoors in a secure, fenced-in area of Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Art In The Park uses a child-centered approach to provide specialized art-oriented programming for children aged 6-12, meaning campers can move freely from area to area and participate in activities at their own pace.
There are 5-6 outdoor, artist-run stations, in addition to other activity areas set up throughout the day. Some of the artist’s stations we have offered include: woodworking, textiles, music, jewelry-making, drama, dance, sculpture, paper mache, clay and painting. Counsellors and ECE staff supplement the arts programming by running additional activities throughout the day. These activities include sand and water play, sports and games, table tennis, swimming and cooperative games.
