Passion for Art
They say there’s an artist in every child and we’re gonna help bring out the artist in yours.
At our Passion for Art camp, we’re hot on not just creating art but understanding it too. The history, appreciation and different techniques.
Don’t be surprised when your kids come home talking about neolithic, classical, romantic, impressionist and abstract impressionist, pointillist, pop, minimalist art … these are the styles we’ll be talking about. Every day, they’ll create their own piece of art using all kinds of techniques like painting, drawing, printing, recycling and ceramics, to name but a few.
At the end of the week the kids will proudly display their masterpieces with a gallery opening. We’d love you to come along, and we know they would too.

Some stuff you’ll need to know before booking:
These details apply to all camps and both of our campuses.
Camps kick-off at 9am, but we have free drop off from 8.30am where children can join in any of our morning activities.
We have a full time nurse on site for every camp week to manage health checks every morning and administer medication/first aid if it’s needed. All camp staff have up-to-date first aid training.
Lunch and snacks are included in the cost of your camp. If your kid is a vegetarian or doesn’t/can’t eat beef, pork, seafood, dairy or eggs, that’s cool - just tell us beforehand in your child’s details online. If your kid has a nut allergy, don’t worry - Camp Asia has a no nut policy.
We offer a highly convenient, safe, secure and sociable bus service to and from camp, calling at a stop near you. Click here for all the info.
