YAK Camps:

Art Camp

Art Camp is a fantastic place for young people to come and explore a wide variety of creative mediums in an environment steeped in the joy of Fine Arts. Clay, pottery, ceramic painting, acrylic painting on canvas, water colours, sculpture, mixed media projects, printmaking, screening, craft projects, fabric painting, fantastic face painting, inflatables, 25 Plasma Cars for the gymnasium and of course our famous environmentally friendly multi-media projects which change every year ie: worm composter, Mason Bee Houses, community sharing boxes, cool garden projects, tile trays etc. We are currently inventing this year's project.
 

There is an art show every Friday from 3:30-4:30 of all the kids' projects that they worked on all week. 
 

This is our longest running camp. We have been doing Art Camp for 25 summers now and many of the campers that came to these camps when they were young are now leading them with the help of C.I.T.'s who are also former Y.A.K. Campers. Also this summer we have three education graduates from McArthur College working for us that have degrees in the arts, music degree and fine arts degrees as well this summer Carrie Whalen will be be working full time at the St. Johns Anglican Church location

Carrie Whalen, the founder of Y.A.K. and a fine arts and fashion design graduate, plans the projects, directs, and oversees all of the camps at both spaces along with her husband Jonathan Morin.

We will be sending out what to bring to camp lists closer to the time of camp, approximately two weeks before camp starts and it will also detail any other covid regulations that may come into effect.

Lego Robotics 

Here at Lego Robotics we have two different models of Mindstorms: The EV3 and the NXT kits which offer many possibilities for robotic fun! We have roughly 20 kits of mindstorm robots just waiting to be built!

 

The combination of Robots and Lego is genius! During this week of camp kids will get to build several different robots that do all kinds of silly nutty things. Each day a different robot is constructed and children learn how to program Lego creations using computers. Upon completion they have their robots compete, play, and execute various challenging missions.

Lego Robotics is now a group for 8 years and up. We have decided to run one group of Lego robotics this year. We will assess each child and group them by ability.

There will be limited enrolment for the 2022 Summer camp season in each session of Lego Robotics.
