If you’re struggling to discover something for your creatively minded children to do this summer, check out these summer arts programs and camps for children in Victoria BC.  There are literally hundreds of arts, music and theatre based programs where your children can develop their creative genius.

At 4Cats Art Studio Oak Bay you can register for one of their artist inspired mixed media camps and learn to create works of art in the styles of such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol or Robert Batemen among others.

For those who live in Victoria’s West Shore communities, take a look at the Aspiring Young Artist Camp at Bear Hill Regional Park.  Young artists aged 9-12 can experiment with several different mediums and techniques including printmaking, pastels, watercolours, and outdoor sketching.  Contact West Shore Parks and Recreation for program dates and registration.

The Victoria Youth Musical Theatre Company operates year round, and during the summer months offers summer performance camps for children aged 9-13, or 13-18.

The Victoria Conservatory of Music offers Orff Lessons to children between the ages of 4-12, based on Orff Schulwerk’s holistic approach to music education. Your children can experience many aspects of creative music education involving speech, poems, body percussion, instrumental play, dance and creative movement, improvisation and composition.

Maybe your 10-14 year olds would prefer Rock Band Camp, a program offered through Saanich Recreation at Royal Oak Middle School – Jack Black would approve!

These and many other summer arts programs and camps for children in Victoria BC can be found at ChildsPlay 101, the go-to resource for year round children’s activities.


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
