Schedule

Day 1 - City Planners

Windsor is a big city! For the first day of our Urban Explorer camp, we will become urban planners and construct our own city using found materials. Campers are encouraged to bring recycled materials from home.

Day 2 - Sculptures

Today is the day to get your creativity moving along with your feet and hands! Explore the Windsor Sculpture Garden to gather inspiration for your very own abstract sculpture. What will you create?

Day 3 - Street Photography

Calling all street photographers! Explore downtown Windsor through your camera and see the city through a whole new lens. Young photographers will learn to compose the perfect image and experiment to find their own, unique style.

Day 4 - Public Art

From graffiti to murals, and sculptures, you can find a lot of public art in our city! How do they help tell the story of our city? Campers will create their own mural and public art installations with found materials.

Day 5 - You’re a natural!

While we have explored many built environments, today we’ll explore natural spaces in our city. We will take time today to slow down and find inspiration from the great outdoors!
