SUMMER IS A TIME TO IMAGINE, CREATE AND COLLECT

From July 4 to August 26, 2016
The McCord Museum day camp excels at providing children with what they need on vacation: play, movement, the outdoors, excursions, and above all, fun. A bilingual day camp for children ages 5 to 10, is A.C.Q. certified and includes a daycare service. This summer, two themes will allow children to develop their know-how.

TWO EXCITING THEMES

Young Collectors
Cabinets of curiosities excite the imagination and speak to us through obsolete, unusual and ancient objects that are placed or piled one on top of the other. Inspired by the McCord Museum’s permanent exhibitions, the treasures of the Redpath Museum and the Stewart Museum’s summer exhibition, children use recycled materials to create imaginary animals. On Friday, parents will attend a presentation of these creations.

Techno Geeks and Fashion

For this day camp, children will build a homemade robot and imagine a futuristic fashion inspired by the star exhibition of summer 2016 at the McCord Museum: ELEGANZA: Italian Fashion, From 1945 to Today. This exhibition will introduce visitors to the richness and originality of the suits and colourful dresses created by the most renowned Italian designers. These festive colours and unique designs will serve as a launch pad from which the children will dream up fashion designs… for robots! At the end of the week of activities, merging the idealized future with the facts of science, the children will present the fruits of their inventiveness in a fashion show for their new creations.
