Care Camp is proud to offer a fun-filled onsite summer camp experience for children ages 3 to 12 years old. We provide our campers with a prepared environment that aids our campers learning process with confidence to master valuable developmental skills. Spontaneous and self-directed learning is fostered in this non-competitive environment. We focus on developing healthy, confident, and independent kids. Our activities for kids ages 4-10 feature innovative teaching methods, small classes, and incredible instructors!
Through the use of a few core values, our summer camp staff works hard to ensure that each camper is provided with the environment necessary for individual growth. Care Camp’s unique camp experience combines both educational and physical activities that promotes academic growth, fine motor and fitness development. Each week, campers will be placed in groups with children of similar ages. These groups will be well supervised by our dedicated staff for each session. Students will be provided with constant support and supervision as they endeavour through their various activities including Math, English, Art, Science experiments, sports, co-operative games and much more!
ALL THIS WITH THE FLEXIBILITY THAT FAMILIES NEED…
With many families, both parents work. In other cases, families consist of one parent and the challenges associated with balancing work life with opportunities for their children can be difficult. We will go to every effort to provide a camp experience that assists families with balancing a busy schedule by offering a variety of programs and service options that are all close to home.

Care Camp Onsite Camp program will be taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure that students are protected. We will be making certain that all toys and equipment are cleaned and disinfected frequently. Students will be encouraged to perform frequent, proper hand hygiene and we will also be incorporating additional hand hygiene opportunities into the daily schedule. Physical distancing of at least 2 meters between camp participants, parents/guardians and staff will also be encouraged by spreading out activity areas, using visual cues, and alternating lunchtime and outdoor playtime. We will also be operating programs in consistent cohorts of no more than 10 individuals including both staff and camp participants. Students will stay within their designated cohort. Cohorts will not mix with other cohorts or be within in the same room/space at the same time. Personal belongings brought to camp will be minimized and kept in an area designated for the individual’s cohort and will not be handled by individuals from other cohorts. Lastly, the pick-up and drop-off of camp participants will happen outside the school and the procedures will support physical distancing. All individuals will be screened including daily temperature checks upon arrival and will be monitored for atypical symptoms and signs of COVID-19. Protocols are in place should participants show symptoms of COVID-19 while in camp.
