Summer Camp

Looking Forward to the 2022 Summer Camps

Enjoy your 2021 summer!

Due to many outstanding uncertainties around summer camps and indoor activities in the summer of 2021, Guelph Dance will not be offering the popular Arts Explosion Camps this season. We thank our camp families and campers for their understanding as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Guelph Dance looks forward to the return of March Break and Summer Camps in 2022.
