TLAC

Where the Arts come alive

Since 2005, thousands of Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) students from Grades 7 to 12 have come together for five days each spring to celebrate the Arts and receive specialized instruction from exceptional professionals at the Trillium Lakelands Art Camp, otherwise known as TLAC!

TLAC 2022

We are planning TLAC 2022 to be held as a traditional camp experience, taking place on May 22 to 27, 2022 at Camp White Pine in Haliburton.

TLAC offers specialized instruction for instrumental and vocal music, drama, musical theatre, dance, and visual arts within an exciting overnight camp experience.

This arts camp is set up with four periods throughout the day. There are evening concerts, featuring performances from major artists, a presentation from local visual artists, and an art display. This enriched arts experience is enhanced by the summer camp atmosphere.

What do I need to bring to camp?

  • Cabins contain beds with only mattresses provided. Campers must supply their own sleeping gear.
  • Your clothes and washbag! The weather can be chilly in May, so campers are expected to dress accordingly with lots of layers and extra blankets for sleeping.
  • If the weather looks rainy, you may want to include a 2nd pair of shoes in case the 1st pair gets wet.
  • Any materials specified in the programs you signed up for.
  • Something to sit on (small cushion or a 2nd pillow case for your pillow) that you don’t mind getting dirty. Campers sit on the floor at the Pantages Theatre for the evening programs.

History of TLAC

In June 2002, 20 TLDSB students attended the Durham Integrated Arts Camp at Camp White Pine in Haliburton, Ontario. The purpose of this was to provide an opportunity for music students from Grades 7 to 12 to enhance their skills in an enriched environment while enjoying the camp experience. Durham’s camp had approximately 350 students at this time.

The following year, 2003, TLDSB students attended once again. At this time it was proposed that TLDSB consider developing a camp based on the Durham model. 400 students attended TLAC in 2013.
