Where the Arts Come Alive
Since 2005, thousands of Trillium Lakelands District School Board students from Grades 7 to 12 have come together for five days each spring to celebrate the Arts and receive specialized instruction from exceptional professionals. The Trillium Lakelands Arts Camp takes place in May each year. It offers specialized instruction for Music, Drama, Music Theatre, Dance, and Visual Art within an exciting camp experience.
In addition to exploring their passions and improving their skills in specific arts areas, students have the opportunity to experience world class performances and learn from the performers and artists themselves.
The arts camp is set up as a typical high school day with four periods per day. Students attending have proficient skills in either instrumental music, concert band, instrumental jazz music, music theatre, dance, or visual arts.
Classes are identified as Junior or Srenior based on the skill level required to participate. These include various classes in the Visual Arts, Theatre Arts, Music, and Health and Fitness.
There is a free-time period following period four when students study, swim, read, play games, etcetera. Three nutritious meals are included each day as well as a snack before bed.
There is a nightly evening concert in the Pinetages Theatre featuring fantastic performances from major artists. Each evening concert begins with an art display and presentation from a local visual artist. This gives the students a chance to appreciate art forms and become familiar with artists within the Trillium Lakelands District School Board.
A supervised study hall is provided every evening from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

In June 2002, 20 Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) students attended the Durham Integrated Arts Camp at Camp White Pine in Haliburton, Ontario. The purpose of this was to provide an opportunity for music students from Grades 7 to 12 to enhance their skills in an enriched environment while enjoying the camp experience. Durham’s camp had approximately 350 students at this time.
The following year, Trillium Lakelands students attended once again. At this time it was proposed that TLDSB consider developing a camp based on the Durham model. 400 students attended TLAC in 2013.
