I’ve written previously about needing to find summer activities for my three sons, and the great ESQ program at the University of Waterloo. Another terrific option for us has been the summer programming offered at the Waterloo Community Arts Centre (WCAC), otherwise known as the Button Factory. Each summer’s sessions are built on a particular arts-related theme. This summer the theme has been Raiders of the Lost Art, and my two oldest sons have thoroughly enjoyed their hands-on view into art throughout history.
There are many other events and activities at WCAC during the year, but it’s these summer day camps that my family enjoys the most.
In short, fun and learning while making stuff, and it’s walking distance from our home! That really can’t be beat.
