TO Live, one of Canada’s largest multi-arts organizations and operator of three iconic venues in Toronto — Meridian Arts Centre, Meridian Hall, and St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts — invites kids to join their Summer Camp that includes two weeks of non-stop creative fun! Whether kids love theatre, visual art, music or dance, they can engage with the arts through education, creation, and movement. In these action-packed day camps, you can inspire your child’s creativity in a vibrant and supportive environment!

For only two weeks in August, you can choose from two programs: Theatre and Visual Art in Week 1 or Music and Dance in Week 2. Of course, if your child loves all forms of creative expression, they can join both camps! Both programs take place at the Meridian Arts Centre, a versatile, modern, and expansive venue in the heart of North York. There, the kids get a real feel of Toronto’s vibrant artistic community by being in close contact with the theatrical professionals.
