Summercamps - A week at the Red Deer Musesum

We are working on updating this information for Summer 2021.

Check back soon for 2021 camp dates!


Camps for kids - ages 6-8 & 9-12

These week-long summer camps offer your child a fun way to meet new friends and experience hands-on activities in a museum / gallery setting while maintaining safe social distancing.Students will create numerous artworks, learn to explore artifacts, experience our Log School House, and more – all within our COVID-19 protocols.

Each week, we will have a guest artist for the day to expand campers' artmaking skills and creativity. Artworks created at the camp will be virtually exhibited following each camp for families to enjoy.

We have a special offering this summer: virtual artist talks with professional artists in their studio!

These talks are accessible to all summer camp students registered on any date.

These virtual camps are a ‘safe and convenient way’ to offer our programs to Red Deer and Central Alberta's teen community!
