    COVID-19 Response 

    As we all find ourselves in unprecedented circumstances, we acknowledge that our programming is going to look a little bit different this summer than usual. However, we are committed to offering fun and engaging programming, while also keeping you and your families safe.

    Our in-person programs are still running this summer, with additional hand-washing and sanitizing protocols, and reduced capacity for both staff and children.

    We are also offering virtual programming for the first time, in addition to our usual programming with some fantastic guest instructors.

    Please rest assured that should any in person or virtual program be cancelled for any reason due to COVID-19, you will be offered a full refund for all programs affected.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We're looking forward to spending an engaging, albeit unique summer with you!

    Kids are not bored!
    Angela Hoenikker (Parent)

    My children attended summer camps this summer. Activities are well planned and unique. The outdoor science class and leadership class are my daughter's favourites. Staff is kind and prices are reasonable because of all the different activities they do like parkour and going to the beach. Kids are not bored! Staff is very friendly and helpful! Thank you ...

    Block is like family
    Ivy Olamit (Parent)

    Our kid has been with Block 8 Acadamy for 3 years for before/after school care and camps. They are likea family to us and has been a great influence on our kid. Their programs and the Block 8 team are also great in keeping the kids active and at the same time learn new things whether it's arts, outdoor activities, and group presentation. Additionally, their programs teaches the kids the sense of community whether it through play or helping out in the community. We are really thankful for Ms. Cindy, she is an amazing mentor very passionate about the kids. Danita and the admin staff are also prompt in responding to any inquiry and communications which really works well for us. Thanks so much, Block 8 ... Read More

    Block 8 is awesome!
    Sarah Thompson (Parent)

    My daughter attends Block 8 Academy and I cannot sing their praises enough. From the moment she began it has been like becoming a member of their family. She has been encouraged and supported in all aspects of her development, and comes home with a smile on her face every day - sometimes I am even asked on the weekend can she go!! :) Especially during the difficult times of this year, they have been there to advise, to mentor, to support, to provide information... (the list seems endless). There is a huge variety of free time, and structured time, both indoors and outdoors. I highly recommend Block 8 - they are awesome ... Read More

    Absolutely recommended!
    Gaby Raymond (Parent)

    Block 8 Academy is a caring and outstanding daycare. The children are kept entertained from free play time (which they need) to organized activities that involve acquiring life knowledge (which they truly enjoy). Limits are clear, kids know what to expect. Awesome! During our time there and even after my child aged out, the staff at Block 8 Academy shared their love and kindness with our family. We’ll be forever thankful to them! I absolutely recommend this daycare. ... Read More

    Happy Campers
    Nicole Hayes (Parent)

    Today my children enjoyed their first day of summer camp at Block 8 Academy. Kids came home raving it was "one of the best days ever" and asking to please go there for another week. Great activities scheduled and run by wonderful facilitators who clearly care and connect with kids. Thank you ... Read More

    Thanks Block 8
    Gaby Raymond (Parent)

    My child was at Block 8 for grade 4 and 5. She always brought back happy stories of the projects they were doing, songs they were singing and playing, where they went hiking, tobogganing on snowy days, fundraising, leadership and so much more. Every morning when I dropped her off, my heart was at peace because she happily stayed. Every evening as I picked her up, I heard, "I don't want to leave yet!" because she enjoyed being there so much. Thanks Block 8 Academy Staff for your loving care, enthusiasm and key participation in making of my kid a better citizen of the world. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the love you shared with us ... Read More

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Cindy and Danita Sepp, Program Directors
    Bachelor of Education - Elementary, BComm

    Hello Parents and Campers,

    We made some great memories this past, summer, with our third summer of running camps for all 10 weeks of the break!  We will do that again, and are set to add some more great memories to the stack this year. 

    At Block 8, we strive to give our campers a well rounded experience, combining physical, artistic, musical and lifeskill development.  The focus is on fun, with a highly active program always planned.  We provide our campers with opportunities to explore nature as well as indoor activities such as parkour, gymnastics, and chef school.  Children are encouraged to form lasting bonds with their fellow campers and instructors.  And I am available if you want to discuss your child's successes or challenges, or if you want to set up specific plans to accommodate your child.  

    We operate as a registered daycare, so families with support or subsidies can apply them to our camps.  

    Looking forward to a stellar year!

    Cindy and Danita
