Our camps give pride of place to inquiry, which helps to build critical thinking skills. Campers should expect to play and have fun, while also thinking and engaging with ideas.

Aart Vaarks emphasizes and explores all the different ways that we learn, and puts those to the test through various artistic media.

Clay model the community and think about what makes you who you are; strum metaphors with plants, trees and park benches to curate all of your environments; write a fairy-tale from the antagonist's perspective, drawing your way to truths; or, dance, walk, skip or jump your way to creation and destruction.

Aart Vaarks takes inspiration from VARK testing, the idea that we learn in different 'modes' (Visual, Aural, Read/write, Kinesthetic sensory), to provide campers the opportunity to create, explore, engage and be artistic with themselves, others, and the environment. Maximum of 24 campers per week.
