Day 1 - Urban planning

As Windsor is a big city with a large industrial and factory influence our first day of our Urban Explorer camp will be working on our understanding of what it takes to plan a city, a bridge, a building.

Day 2 - Sculpture garden

Today is the day to get your creativity moving along with your feet and hands. Join us for the walk along the river looking at the sculpture gardens taking time to create a likeness of statues that catch an eye.

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 around Windsor

Join us for a day of exploration of local fauna and flora seen on the walls of downtown Windsor. In this camp we will take a walking tour* to see the different public arts discussing what we think of them and how they help tell the story of Windsor, Ontario.

*If the weather does not permit we shall do a virtual tour of the public art works.

Day 5 - Nature

While we have explored the urban aspects of Windsor let us now explore some of the more "nature" aspects. We will take time today to look at nature and the outdoors and find our connection to it.
