MAKE. LOOK. LEARN. EXPLORE.
Superb summer programs for children and teens in 2020
Given the current public health environment and challenges presented by physical distancing, Queen’s has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person youth camps normally delivered throughout the summer. This includes Agnes Art Academy and Agnes Art Camp. This decision was made with the health and safety of campers and camp staff as the top priority and based on public health guidance. We are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this causes for campers and their parents.
Your full refund will be processed promptly. You may read a full statement from Queen’s.
For the month of July, Agnes will offer weekly virtual camps. This online offering is currently being designed and we will have more information to share with shortly. If you have any questions regarding the cancellation of Agnes Art Camp and Agnes Art Academy or our new virtual camp, please contact the Programs staff at AEACpa@queensu.ca.
