Calgary Camps

Summer camp programs throughout the city

The city of Calgary is home to a variety of exciting summer camps, ranging from day camps for sports, to educational, to artistic pursuits, and everything in between. Attending summer camp is an ideal way for kids to break up the summer months, to extend their education, and to make new friends who share their interests. Camp helps kids grow intellectually during the summer months so they stay active away from the discipline of school. Kids camp has been shown to have many long-term benefits for personal development. 

Both parents and children may have trepidation about attending summer camp, but it is so much better for kids to be spending time in a camp than remaining at home. It's precisely the "breaking out of your comfort zone" that makes camp so valuable. As Rick Mercer says, at camp, "you do things you never thought you would ever do." The whole point of attending a summer camp in Calgary is to grow in ways you can't when you're sitting at home in front of the computer or the TV.

When searching for a camp, you should consider whether it is accredited by the Alberta Camping Association (ACA). This provincial organization visits camps regularly (at least once every three years) and checks compliance with standards in all areas ranging from finances to safety to environmental standards. That said, many great camps are not members of the ACA, offering well-run, safe programs.
