It may be hard to believe that we are already into March, but here we are! Many of us are getting excited for some longer, brighter days with Daylight Savings Time and the Spring Equinox but with March Break just ahead, some parents are wondering what to do with the week off school. With kid-friendly activities, interactive galleries and entertaining camps, there will be plenty of things to do to keep the children busy.

Our Kids’ Craft Centre will be in full swing throughout March Break, featuring a different nature craft each day. Colour a bird, butterfly, or dragonfly and add it to our migration tree.

Art Gallery of Windsor


Overlooking the Detroit River, make art inspired by Québec artist Françoise Sullivan from March 16 – 20, 2020.  Camp participants will enjoy the Françoise Sullivan exhibition from the Musée d’art Contemporain in Montreal while exploring art-making in many mediums.  There will be something for everyone, including one-of a-kind portraiture and mixed media sculptural projects.  The art campers will also work collaboratively to produce a dance project inspired by the performances created by Sullivan.  A field trip is also planned during the week.  Recommended for ages 6 – 12 years old.  Daily or weekly rates available.
