Here's what parents are saying:

"Your camps are THE BEST in the city!! Our daughter has gone to all sorts of camps, but comes home from yours so happy and fulfilled…All the instructors make it very evident that they enjoy children and take a genuine interest." - Jane Kidney-Hermelin

"My daughter is usually such a sound sleeper. She falls asleep before her head hits the pillow most nights. She was so excited with her Steal the Stage Design Works Camp after the first day that she couldn't get to sleep for hours!" - Val Reeves

If you are running late or your child will not be attending camp a certain day, please call and let us know at 506-453-4623. If a child does not arrive for camp, we will try to contact parents/guardians.


Pick-up time for children is between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

To ensure the security of your child, you will need to sign for your child upon leaving camp.

If there is any reason why you need to drop your child off earlier or pick them up later, WE MUST BE NOTIFIED BEFOREHAND and we will try to make arrangements.
