Manga is a popular genre of illustration in the world of comics, originating in Japan. Manga Summer Day Camp is a fun-filled week of Japanese culture and arts with a special focus on MANGA!

We have an exciting week of activities to immerse your child in Japanese Canadian arts and culture. They will experience a lineup of fantastic workshops by local Vancouver comic artists who will share their knowledge of illustration, storytelling, and design. Manga Camp kids will design and create their very own Manga and will take home a copy of their compilation comic including stories designed by their day camp tomodachi (friends)! The manga component will be complemented by various cultural activities by local teachers and masters of the Japanese arts, to inspire our budding artists with learning to draw forms, movement and themes, that we know the day campers are going to love.

The program will run in English. Artists and volunteers will have varying degrees of Japanese language competency, from fluent to beginner. Lunch is not provided.

Spring Break Manga Camp is designed for beginner to intermediate level Manga enthusiasts.

Ages 9 to 12 years. 

The program is limited to 20 children under the supervision of staff, artist instructors, and volunteers.  

* Please note that we cannot provide personal care, administer medication, or provide one-to-one assistance on an ongoing basis.
