Sonart Day Camp at the Canadian War Museum
The Canadian War Museum is a unique location that never fails to amaze our campers with what it has to offer! At this camp, children enjoy an unforgettable musical experience while learning more about history and culture.
In addition to daily music lessons, campers participate in strategy games and team-building exercises, both indoors and outdoors. This is a great camp for kids with an analytical turn of mind!
The Sonart camp at the Canadian War Museum is located conveniently close to downtown Hull and Ottawa (handy if you work downtown). The music curriculum is based on the Conservatoire’s program and approved by that institution.
DATES AND FEES
The federal government has yet to issue a reopening date for federal museums. The Canadian War Museum is therefore closed and has no specific reopening date.
Faced with the uncertain situation, Camp Sonart today made the decision to cancel its camp at the Canadian War Museum. We offer you the possibility of joining the College Saint-Alexandre camp which will be held in July as well as the first two weeks of August.
