AGO Art Camp summer 2020 has been cancelled.

For more than 50 years we have run summer programs at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and this summer was shaping up to be our best camp yet. AGO Art Camp is a place and time for kids to be their most creative selves, learn new skills, make friends and lifelong memories, and explore the exceptional artworks at the AGO. It is the highlight of our year, so it is with disappointment that we are announcing the cancellation of AGO Art Camp, summer 2020.

With the first day of camp rapidly approaching, too much is still unknown. Our foremost responsibility will always be the safety and welfare of our campers, staff and volunteers. With that in mind, we cannot operate unless we are confident that we can maintain a safe and healthy (and fun!) environment for everyone. This decision has been made in consideration of the recommendations made by public health officials and the best advice from our fellow camp colleagues and members of the Ontario Camp Association.

Registrants will be receiving a full refund of all camp charges.

What’s next? We are excited to stay connected with our camp families! Stay tuned for new online opportunities to learn, create and engage with the AGO this summer. We also invite you to visit AGO from Home. Check in regularly for artmaking activities, videos and other great content to keep your creativity flowing. Please share your creations with us using the hashtag #AGOmakes, and let us know how we can support your camper while at home.

We are already imagining AGO Art Camp summer 2021 and cannot wait to see campers back in the Gallery School, making art, having fun, cheering on their friends and enjoying camp to its fullest. For now, we are sending our best from everyone at AGO Art Camp and look forward to making art together very soon.

Be part of this innovative day camp that encourages exciting connections between art, culture, and ideas! Our one- and two-week camps for children ages 5-13, emphasize self-expression and allow young artists to discover and play while exploring the AGO's galleries and collections including the exciting exhibition Picasso: Painting the Blue Period. Campers create amazing art projects with our artist instructors, focusing on both contemporary and traditional artmaking practices, while using a wide variety of materials and techniques.

Wrapped around the rich studio experience is a day camp located in the heart of the city, offering diverse recreational and camp activities, supported by our amazing team of counsellors.
