They even have a few original fighting manuals available to see in our Museum.

Their five-day Knight Camp for youth centres on the skills of becoming of a knight – from martial arts of the longsword and sword and shield – to the practice of knightly virtues such as courage and integrity. Students at Knight Camp learn about history, leadership, heraldry, archery, medieval games and more.

When young people connect with the arts, they gain self-confidence, develop self-discipline, and discover creative expression—skills they’ll carry with them for life. Art comes in many forms, so Arts Umbrella inspires creativity through painting, drawing, music, photography, theatre, dance, architecture, animation, technology, media arts, and more. We base our classes on arts education principles, hire practicing artists to provide innovative instruction, and use top-notch studio supplies.

At four facilities across metro Vancouver, Arts Umbrella enrolls children, youth, and teens in over 1,000 classes every year.

Each year, more than 22,000 children experience the arts at Arts Umbrella, with two-thirds participating at little to no cost to families. Our mission is to be Canada’s leader in arts education for young people, a place that builds community and delivers profound life experiences through our commitment to innovation, excellence, and inclusivity.
