Half term

February Half Term at Camp Canary

Camp Canary returns with an ‘Into the Orient’ themed Half Term 18th– 22nd February 2019. Each Monday and Friday is special at Camp Canary and this February half term is no exception.  On Monday a tutor from Goldsmiths Confucius Institute for Dance and Performance will lead a morning of Fan and Handkerchief Dance workshops for all ages. Liz Walters from Mugenkyo (the UK’s first and only full time Professional Taiko Group) will teach an afternoon of unforgettable Taiko Drumming workshops to the Junior group. They’ll get to play real Taiko drums! Taiko will help them develop team work, care and consideration all while learning how to coordinate some powerful rhythms.

On Friday, a duo from Whitecrane Martial Arts club, specialising in Kung Fu and oriental dance will teach traditional martial arts moves and perform an authentic Lion Dance with the children.

Along with all of these incredible experiences for little people, the children will be busy with themed crafts and sporting activities!

Hannah Forster, a qualified Primary School teacher with over 10 years of experience was inspired to start Camp Canary for her love of art, music and sport. Every day there are two sport lessons and two art lessons. The activities are designed for age appropriate groups Camp Kidz for ages 4-6 and Juniors for ages 6+ but there are also opportunities for siblings to spend time together. 4 year olds, ‘Little Canaries’ can come along for a half day of fun joining the Camp Kidz too!
