As the snow has melted and spring has fully sprung it is that time again – SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION.
It’s tricky because you know as soon as registration opens, camps fill up VERY quickly.
Let’s take a look at some of the Day Camps that come top rated from my kiddos for yours.
Starting off strong with camps offered at the Museum of Nature. Bringing back camps for the first time in nearly 10 years, the museum is offering a bilingual summer camp program designed to enrich the lives of children aged 5-12 years through memorable, nature-centered activities.
The camps will run from June 26 to August 26, 2023, with 2 locations available.
The Museum Explorers summer camps, run by Kinéactif, offer three weekly options from June 26th to August 4th: Enviro-bike, Artist at the Museum, and Brick by Brick camps, all designed for 7-to-12 year olds who want to have fun, learn, and make lasting memories.
My 8 year old daughter is most excited for Artist at the Museum, allowing children to create nature-inspired art projects. Both kids want to be signed up for Brick by Brick, allowing children to build wonders inspired by nature and museum architecture with LEGO™ blocks.
The Nature Play summer camp will take place weekly in partnership with Out to Play from July 24 to August 26. Children ages 5 to 12 can connect with nature through outdoor play and engage in hands-on activities led by expert instructors.
Registration is open now, visit the museum’s website, nature.ca.
We love our amazing local camps. Susan Whitelock School of Dancehas been a long-standing favourite for my littles. This year they offer full-day camps for children 5 and up with opportunities for your older children to gain volunteer experience helping out at the camps.
With rotating themes every week of the summer, your children are sure to have the best time ever.
Theatre Kids Camp is a camp after my own heart, with both half-day and full-day camp options depending on the age of your children.
Hosted by Ottawa Valley Theatre Kids we have a camp offering a balanced combination of arts education and well-rounded recreation. Children will have a chance to explore drama topics and theatre production more in-depth while keeping fun and friendship at the center.
Both camps are full-day camps run through the Town of Arnprior for children ages 4-12. What is great about Museum Experimentation Station Camp is the option for drop-in days for children not requiring full-week camps.
Camp Wango offers various themes each week and each Friday participants get to explore a new area of town. What an excellent way for your child to experience their community in a new light.
Summertime is about having fun and making memories with friends new and old. Camps are a great way to experience new things, work on skills, and be a carefree kid in the sunshine.
Maybe one day we will reach overnight camp status, but for now, we are just going to embrace all the fun these amazing camp options have to offer.
