Overview 

This Pottery and Sculpture Camp offers a creative and interactive outlet that all children need. Campers will experience what it’s like to be a real pottery creator and get their hands dirty as they spin a real pottery wheel. Campers can use their creative and artistic skills to paint their pots and bowls or other pieces of art they create before they are put into a kiln for the final step. Finally, after several hours, the pots are ready for flower displays, holding fruit, or whatever else you may use them for. Each day, campers will get to create something magnificent to bring home with them.

Why is this camp beneficial for my child?

Open your child’s eyes to the world of creative pottery making and decoration. Allow them to see the creativity involved in one of today’s most exciting hobbies. Spark a new interest in this interesting art and bring their creativity to light in the process. Campers will work with teachers and receive close monitoring and guidance, as pottery making is messy but fun.

Campers will also benefit from Rideau’s facilities and participate in a variety of physical activities including trampoline, tumbling and stretching.

Rideau Gymnastics Update

Dear Rideau Families,

Following the request made by all levels of government, all recreational and competitive training has been suspended until further notice.

We hope everyone is coping with the new, but hopefully short-lived, lifestyle norms.

To those that were registered to our March Break camp, please note that a credit will be applied to your account.

Furthermore, recreational athletes will be offered make-up training for sessions missed due to our temporary closure, once we reopen.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support during these times.

We will continue to provide updates, as soon as new information is available.

Staying connected in these times is even more important than before, so we encourage everyone to keep in touch through the various online communication means that we are fortunate to have at our disposal.

Your Rideau Team
