Since 2005, Collage has offered a fun-filled English summer camp where kids can explore their creativity through an array of exciting and educational hands-on activities, including art, games, music, theatre and movement. Our team of experienced, native English speaking teachers works hand-in-hand with our students to create the perfect English immersion environment.

Collage summer camp is open to both native and non-native English speakers, ranging from 4 to 13 years old. Groups are divided by age, as well as English level, to ensure that all children are comfortable, as well as challenged. Additionally, with a teacher/student ratio of no more than 1:5, Collage offers kids the specialized attention they need to practice their English, explore their creativity, make new friends and most of all… have fun!

This year, the Collage summer camp will be divided into 6 individually themed weeks, chock full of creative, fun ways to explore both the English language and each camper’s curiosity and interests. Prepare your brushes and berets because Week 1 we will be diving into the world of the Great Artists! (And becoming ones ourselves!) On Friday we will inaugurate the Collage Art Gallery with an extra special opening. Week 2 is our Sustainable Fashion+Photography week: 5 days to become designers, photographers and models of wearable art with recycled materials. Come ready to be dazzled and delighted in our Friday Catwalk & Photo Exhibit! Week 3 is our Mystery Theatre week. Pack your spy kit now, because this week will be full of mysteries to solve and clues to create… the big question remains: on Friday will the parents be able to resolve our mystery in time??? Sharpen your pencils and dog-ear your favorite books, because Week 4 is our Little Bookmakers week. A week of Art & Writing, culminating in a Friday Storytelling session at the first Collage Bookshop! Every little author will go home with their very own book fresh off the Collage Press! Ahoy, it’s not over yet! July will wrap up stranded on Pirate Island… Can the campers figure out how to get off the island? Will they want to?? Week 5 is our Pirate Island Puppet week – we can’t divulge any more – you’ll just have to come to our Friday puppet show presentation to see for yourself! (Stay tuned for our September theme!)

Over the course of summer camp at Collage, younger students will soak up new vocabulary while making arts+crafts, dressing up, solving mysteries, listening to stories and hitting the stage for their turn in the spotlight. At the same time, older students will engage in the practical use of English with special guests, field trips and unique projects that challenge their oral and written use of the language. All students will have the chance to collaborate with their teachers and personalize their week to both their interests and language-learning needs.

If you want your children to be active participants in their summer experience, learning what they truly want to be learning, then the Collage summer camp is for you!

*Healthy snacks provided at 10:30am and 5pm
*Children that stay all day should bring a brown bag lunch

Led by artist, educator and photographer, Michael Haas.

Take advantage of your summer to practice your English in a dynamic and creative environment, sharing your passions, learning some hands-on photography skills and telling your story to the world. These weeklong workshops are open to native and non-native English speaking teens.

Monday July 3 – Friday July 7

15h- 18h
Is there a story you want to share with the world? Do you want to practice and hone your English skills while learning more about photography? This week long photography workshop provides the students with an opportunity to chose a topic that they are passionate about and learn how to share their perspective with the world. The students will learn about the technical aspects of photography, such as composition, editing, and building a portfolio. In addition, they will also learn how to talk about what they are passionate about, and how to share their work and opinions with the community at large. The week will culminate in a presentation of their work.

 

Week Two: Art Makers

Monday July 10- Friday July 14

15h- 18h

This course will focus on specific art movements and their role in their corresponding cultural shifts. Students will learn about these art movements, their effectiveness, how successful they were or were not and how they reverberate in today’s society while being encouraged to explore their own artistic abilities by developing an artwork based on each particular movement. The course visits questions such as how has the past impacted the future? How can we build from the past and present to take us into the future? The week will culminate in a presentation of their work.

 

Week Three: Raise Your Voice

raise your voice

 

Monday July 17 – Friday July 21

15h- 18h

This course is design to allow students to take on the role of storyteller, using their own lives as inspiration. Students will be encouraged to dive into their own experiences to understand the uniqueness of their own world and narrative voice and to find the best way to share their story. Looking beyond art and therapy, this workshop focuses on art as language, and the goal is to use language to express oneself and craft a compelling story.
