Day camp


The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Day Camp Is Back!

Your child has a boundless imagination, and likes to paint, draw or craft? The Museum is just the place for them!

Parent guidelines

Daycampers will get the chance to thoroughly explore the Museum through fun and exciting tours aimed at stimulating their imagination and creativity. They will see the summer’s major exhibition, Portable Universe: Thought and Splendour of Indigenous Colombia and will immerse themselves in projects based on what inspires them.

In this unique day camp, the children will travel across time and styles as they discover the myriad artists and works in the MMFA’s collections. Back in the studio, they will be encouraged to express themselves using a variety of creative techniques, themes and methods. They will also carry our two- and three-dimensional projects using all sorts of materials in a relaxed atmosphere. At the end of the week, the children will present their artwork to their friends and family in an exhibition that they mount themselves. An experience that promises lifelong memories and new friendships!

The Merlin Fund and Lethbridge Fund were established to give children from low-income families an opportunity to develop their artistic talents. The financial support received from these funds enables children aged 6 to 14 who are referred by our partner community organizations to attend the Museum Day Camp for free.

The Montreal Montreal of Fine Arts thanks the Fondation de la Chenelière for its financial support of the Museum’s educational and cultural activities.
