Day camp at the Conservatoire by Sonart
We are pleased to partner for the fourth consecutive year with the Conservatoire de musique de Gatineau. With a course curriculum based on the Conservatoire’s program and approved by that institution, this is our most music-intensive camp.
The Conservatoire and Sonart proudly share a commitment to personal excellence and self-realization. These values are conveyed to the campers in a safe, motivating setting and in an appealing way. This unique experience is an ideal way to encourage the optimal development of your child’s musical potential.
Easily accessible by public transit (STO network), the Sonart day camp at the Conservatoire also includes outdoor activities in a large, secure green space.
DATES AND FEES
The Conservatoire will not be able to host the Sonart Camp for the summer of 2020 due to COVID-19.
The premises of the Conservatoire do not meet the physical distancing measures requested by the government. This is why Sonart made the decision to move its camp from the Conservatoire to Collège Saint-Alexandre.
Collège Saint-Alexandre becomes the ideal location for summer camps because of its large classrooms, large outdoor spaces and its ability to accommodate a number of campers to meet the government’s physical and health distancing measures.
The same weeks will be offered.

‘’I thought the whole camp was run very professionally and friendly and efficiently.’’
‘’This year my kid did 4 camps, and tried this one for the first time. We loved this camp!! The concert was amazing, and you can tell the kids were at times nervous but were putting so much effort. Beautiful video showcasing the activities of the week, and the binder with their work was a nice souvenir. We found it to be the most educative, stimulating, and best organized. We’ll definitely plan to repeat the experience.’’
