Many parents in Canada like to keep the kids entertained in the summer holidays which usually run for 2 or 3 months and start at the end of June. Summer programs provide the perfect opportunity for kids to make new friends while getting out and about, having fun and learning new things.
There are many different types of programs, with some focusing on sports including baseball and football and others offering creative art classes and music programs.
Kids can also expand their minds by going to math, science and technology camps.
Kids can just spend the days at the camps from around 8:30am until 5pm, or they can sleep over at the camps where meals are all provided and organised activities are supervised throughout the night.

This facility also encourages the creative-minded to join in on the fun with video and photography programs, as well as art, culture and drama lessons.
