Whatever you and your child are looking for, chances are there is a kids camp out there offering the perfect summer program for your child.

Many camps in Canada cater to a broad range of ages, from four years old to teenagers. Some summer camp activities for kids have structured programming that will evolve with the interests and needs of your child, so your kids can "grow up" at their camp. Youth camps offer a distinctive culture and embrace a certain set of values, which is why many tend to hire former "kid campers" as counsellors. These camps are special summer communities.
