Arts & Crafts
For young campers Arts and Crafts focuses on developing artistic skills while having fun. For older campers at Arts and Crafts, children are challenged with more intricate masterpieces.
The Jewellery Shop
At Jewellery Shop campers craft creative designs such as bracelets, necklaces, pins, barrettes and more using plastic lacing, wire, rope and beads. Upon the completion of their fun, fancy jewellery campers are able to bring it home to share with friends and family.
Children are in charge of the entire creative process at Crestwood; they start with raw clay and continue working on it throughout the session until it arrives on your living room coffee table! After molding their clay it is fired in one of our two on-site kilns, at which point campers paint and glaze their work of art. Crestwood is fortunate to have superior instructors that are able to guide our campers to complete creative projects.
This activity includes dress up, improvisation and mime. The oldest campers put on a show at the end of the month, involving singing, dancing and acting. The campers are active in both on- and off-stage activities, such as costuming, set making, and design. The end product is both rewarding and entertaining. The children gain knowledge of all the arts while having fun.
Campers learn all different types of dance all while listening to their favourite songs! This energetic specialty will boost their confidence and encourage fun and fitness while they prepare for performances and learn our 2015 Camp Dance!
Magic Forest is a specialty specifically directed at the younger campers. Travel through a world of black light imagination When children enter the Magic Forest at Crestwood, they are greeted by larger-than-life cutouts of multicoloured trees, castle walls, gates, and bushes. This program combines drama, music and storytelling while using camper’s imaginations in order to give a sense of self-confidence in the arts.
Campers learn the art of puppetry by not only creating their own puppets but by watching education puppet shows. Each fast moving session is packed with hilarious fun with an emphasis on innovation and creativity.
You won’t believe your eyes! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there is definitely more than meets the eye. Play, Practice and Perform! This incredible, interactive programme will inspire, instruct and entertain all of our campers!

This programme also helps improve the development of fun and gross motor skills. From homemade rockets, propelled cars and even flash lights- campers are always working on exciting projects that inspire learning and problem solving!
