Summer Volunteers

Each summer, we recruit many summer camp volunteers for our Summer Fun! and ArtReach programs. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience working with children in a fun and energetic art camp setting.

About Summer Fun! and ArtReach

Our Summer Fun! program runs for six weeks in July and August and offers a variety of music, dance, drama and visual arts classes for students ages 5 to 14. Our ArtReach program runs for one week in August. It is a free camp for children in Coquitlam who face barriers to arts education.
