SPFX kids is for Children & Tweens.

SPFX kids is a brand new, specialty summer camp launching in July 2018! Our week long workshops teach children ages 9 -13 the trade and art of special effects make-up. If your child is inspired by science fiction, horror, fantasy and the creatures they see in the movies or on television, this camp will teach them what we in the industry refer to as “Out Of Kit” special effects.

overview our camp territory

SPFX KIDS Camp is centrally located at Artscape Youngplace in Downtown Toronto’s West Queen West Area. We welcome campers from all of Toronto and the GTA and are easily accessible by bike, public Transit or Car.


Artscape Youngplace nurtures creation, learning and collaboration through innovative programs, experiences and events in an inspiring, social environment in order to strengthen and grow our community.

Part ideas laboratory, part creativity workshop, Artscape Youngplace is a community cultural hub located in Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood, with 75,000 square feet of space devoted to artistic inspiration, learning, growth and expression.

The facility opened in 2013 after a major renovation and community consultation process. Artscape’s $17 million transformation of the building, a former school, was completed just before the centenary of its construction in 1914. Artscape Youngplace is named in recognition of a generous lead gift from The Michael Young Family Foundation.

The artists and organizations inside the building represent a vibrant mix of art forms and cultural mandates and provide many programs and events to enjoy. The surrounding neighbourhood is one of the country’s most creative, and is a major centre for contemporary art in Canada.
