Summer Camp

Laurier Arts Express camp hosts final performance

Waterloo – Wilfrid Laurier University’s Arts Express summer camp for children with special needs will stage the program’s final dance, drama and musical performance Friday, July 10, at 1:30 p.m. in the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall on Laurier’s Waterloo campus. Members of the public are invited to attend.

Arts Express is an inclusive week-long creative arts day camp held each year where children ages six to 14 get to experience art, music, drama and dance in a fun and accepting environment. The campers’ week is themed around experiencing travel throughout the beautiful Canadian countryside.

The camp also serves as a placement for Laurier and University of Waterloo students enrolled in the Community Service-Learning course, "Inclusive Arts for Children," offered by Laurier’s Faculty of Music. Students in this course experience the arts while reviewing theory and practice from creative arts therapies and learning strategies for working with individuals with special needs. During the Arts Express camp, students from Laurier and the University of Waterloo work as camp leaders, putting theory into practice.

“Arts Express allows children to experience the creative process and not worry about perfecting an artistic product,” said camp coordinator Elizabeth Mitchell, a part-time instructor in Laurier’s music therapy program. “As campers engage in art, dance, drama and music, they explore their creativity and discover new ways to express themselves and communicate, which has special relevance for children with diverse needs and abilities.”

Arts Express is co-sponsored by KidsAbility and Laurier’s Faculty of Music, as well as the Carousel Dance Centre, the Early Childhood Education program at Conestoga College and the University of Waterloo.

The performance is open to the public and admission is free.
