Camp

Summer camp is available in July and August. We provide an outdoor, well-rounded, early camp experience for young children within a safe, fun, and supportive environment. This exceptional first camp experience nurtures children’s independence, confidence and adventurous nature while developing their physical, creative & social skills.

 

Our camps provide a ratio of one counsellor to every five campers to ensure lots of individual attention. In case of rainy days, our fully equipped facilities include large indoor gymnasiums, classrooms and kitchens for cooking and science experiments.

 

Camps include Full day, ¾ day and ½ day options.

 

Camp activities take place in a fully fenced outdoor playground and beautiful garden. Counselors are selected from our R.E.C.E staff, experienced camp counselors, university teaching and athlete/kinesiology students and early childhood education students.

Space Voyages

Chemists

Scientists grow crystals and experiment with chemical reactions in a completely safe though explosive way, using science materials, tools and the fundamentals of – air, water, earth, fire, life, matter, and energy. Much fun is had recreating volcanoes, geysers, tornadoes, and eruptions.

Engineers

Explore using pulleys, gears and gadgets. What is on the inside, how does it work and what else can be made? They create optical illusions and magic with lights, colours, optics, prisms, barometers, wind chimes, sundials, and weather vanes.

Planting and Nature

Naturalists investigate the essentials of planting outdoors: soil, earthworms, parts of plants, honeybees and weather. Naturalists plant flowers, create sand candles, build bird feeders and make paper from scratch. Children will take their plant, candle and bird feeders home to transplant in their own home garden oasis.

Cooking

Junior Chefs bake pineapple upside-down cake, pizza, make jam, bake bread and other delectable creations in a fully equipped kitchen for everyone to enjoy.

Sports and Physical Education

In our enclosed outdoor playground, children exercise both their imagination and motor skills; developing self-reliance and body awareness. Multi-sport skill development programs introduce young children to the concepts and skills involved in sports. Instructors focus on practicing sports skills and playing games in a fun, creative, highly active, non-competitive and often in water wet environment. The program focuses on teamwork rather than the importance of winning. Children alternate between structured gym/ sports activities and active free play. Sports skills are implemented in a cooperative, skill-based play environment for soccer, basketball, water baseball, water volleyball and hockey.
