SCHOOL OF MODERN DANCE welcomes students back in classes for both locations!

At SMD Sleepaway Summer Camp we believe the magic of the camp experience starts with a shared community, helping campers develop new skills and build self-esteem - all while enjoying the wonders of nature - a truly incredible Summer Vacation!
We believe that our Camp can be a refuge from the incessant buzz of technology - a safe place where kids can be kids, play fun games, dance, develop creativity, personal growth and make unforgettable memories.
The camp is only 40 minutes from downtown Ottawa, with camp grounds located on a beautiful lake Newcombe and surrounded by serene nature.
We have 2 large well-ventilated (heated, if needed) sleeping cabins, indoor flush toilets and showers, large kitchen and gathering areas, dance studio/ party room, stage, beach, volleyball court and more.
Our cook will be making delicious and healthy meals for everyone: breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks daily. SMD team will not only teach multiple dance styles, but will also focus on communication, community bonding,  and fun. Every evening we will host an event to summarize the day and create spectacular memories- from bonfire under the stars to dance parties.





School Of Modern Dance

This will be more than just a regular vacation- it's all about the moments- the ones that make up the memories of your life. It can be big, like sleeping away from home for the first time and it's the little moments too, like two friends sitting on the dock and discussing their day or it's a shy child that just went out of her comfort zone and made that step which brought her confidence. It's these moments that make your children into the adults they're on their way to becoming and we will do our best to help them grow happy, smart, creative and healthy.
