The broad range of camps and programs available across Canada means there's a camp or program to suit every interest, strength and need—but how do you make the right choice for your child?
Kids who are mature enough may enjoy overnight camps, which can lead to meaningful and lifelong friendships in a safe setting that promotes independence and co-operation.
If you'd like to provide the excitement and rewards of camp, but your child isn't ready for an overnight camp, then don't worry—you have other options. Perhaps a day camp would be a better choice. There are plenty of different types of camps for parents to choose from; you just have to consider your child's needs and interests.
Some day and overnight camps are general, offering a range of different activities. Specialty camps, meanwhile, focus on a particular activity or skill, such as sports, computers, arts, language or adventure. Among these specialty camps are those geared towards kids with special needs, enabling them to experience the joys and excitement of camp like every other child.
