About Our Camps

With a unique combination of spectacular grounds overlooking the Humber River Valley and a world-famous art collection, the McMichael provides an unmatched backdrop for children’s art camps. Driven by the talent of the best young artists and art instructors in the GTA, each camp involves gallery viewing, outdoor activities, and in-studio artmaking to allow campers to discover their own creative power, and meet new friends while exploring The Art of Canada*.
