    2. Signs will be installed on premises to remind staff, campers and parents of the regulations and procedures in place.

    3. Group will adhere to a 1:5 counsellor to camper ratio (1:4 for Juniors) and will have no more than 10 campers total at any time in any area.

    4. Laurus administration is currently coming up with programming in accordance with the guidelines for camps and the childcare sector provided by the government of Quebec, the ACQ and CNESST. This programming takes into consideration distancing, sanitization standards, ratio directives, logistics of applying regulations and procedures such as scheduled hand washing, distancing, limiting common supplies, PPE for all staff members, lower counsellor to camper ratios, scheduled disinfecting times, etc.

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Laurus Summer Camp

    our take

    The directors of Laurus are go getters, to be sure, which in itself is part of the program. It’s about mentorship, getting people together who are enthusiastic about living active, engaged lifestyles, and who can broadcast their enthusiasm effectively to young people. Founder Philip Cutler, at age 25, became the youngest councillor ever elected in Westmount, and he hasn’t slowed down since. He and cofounder Gabriel D'Amico-Mazza exemplify what it means to live a life engaged with the community that they live within, from physical fitness to philanthropy. Instructors are chosen with those attributes in mind, including experience in education. The activities are varied and broad, from yoga to guest speakers. Participants come away having had fun, though also jazzed about the entire experience, including the people they’ve met and the environments that they’ve experienced.

    A camp that is safe and fun!
    Jennifer Bento (Parent)

    We sent our 7 year old for two weeks to Laurus downtown campus this summer. With the pandemic, this was the first activity and time spent away from home. I was impressed by the COVID-19 protocols put in place and the protocols were followed closely by staff. It felt reassuring to know we were leaving our child somewhere safe, and fun! Our daughter came home the first day asking if camp continued on the weekends:-) she loved the activities, the themes, made new friends and really connected with counsellors Evie, Rainbow and Peaches. Thank you for the positive experience ... Read More

    A fun summer during an abnormal time
    Joyce Holeihel (Parent)

    We sent our son to the downtown camp and he had an amazing time! The staff was very professional and they really handled the covid situation well! Communication was great, responded on time and everything was very clear. They made an abnormal summer into a fun summer and we are so thankful that we had this opportunity. He LOVED science and all the counselors (im still hearing about Mango, Zed, Pancake, Robin, and many more..) Would recommend the camp to anyone and looking forward to the coming years ... Read More

    "Looking forward to seeing you all in 2019"
    Vicki Ajmo (Parent)

    Our girls have been part of the Laurus family for the past five summers. Every June, they walk through those doors and feel at home. I can’t wait to pick them up and hear the hilarious stories of kids just being kids and the camp allowing them to truly be themselves. The administration and counselors are amazing... always accommodating, friendly, warm and fun! Looking forward to seeing you all in 2019 ... Read More

    "Memories to Treasure!"
    Andrea Martin (Parent)

    My children have been attending Laurus for the past 4 summers and have had wonderful experiences there. The staff are attentive, warm and know how to engage the kids and make sure they have a great time. The number one rule of Laurus Summer Camp is after all to have fun and the team at Laurus really knows how to make this happen! Thanks to the whole team for giving our kids such great experiences and memories to treasure ... Read More

    "The professionalism from the camp..."
    Sean Roseman (Parent)

    Laurus summer day camp was a great time for our daughter. The professionalism from the camp organizers to staff was great. They made my wife and I feel very comfortable signing up our daughter. It was our daughters first time at a day camp and she had a blast all summer. We originally only signed her up for a few weeks and then we kept adding on weeks for her as she loved it and ended up there all summer. Thank you again Laurus camp and see you next summer ...

    Thankful for this amazing camp experience
    Kimberly Brown (Parent)

    Day 1 at this camp and my youngest couldn't even let me finish asking question before excitedly saying "I loved it". We're on the 2nd week and my girls still love it! Given the pandemic, we're thankful that they were able to bring some joy to our girls' lives ... Read More

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Alexandra Hiscox, Director of Camp Operations

    Dear Parents,

    At Laurus, we are constantly adapting to improve our impact on the youth that we cater to in our communities. Our motivation stems from the significance of combining education with unforgettable aspects of the summer camp lifestyle. Our main goal is to ensure that children who attend our camp are learning throughout the summer and improving essential skills in creative and dynamic ways!

    What distinguishes Laurus from most camps is our unique Specific Training Program that allows you and your child to choose what skills they want to immerse themselves in and improve on. For 75 minutes each day, your child will be learning in a fun and stimulating environment on the specific subject of their choice. Everyday our STA’s are different and every week follows a different theme so your child may stick to what they love all summer or can feel free to try new things by joining a different STA each week. You can customize your learning experience. Our categories for our Specific Training Areas include: Arts (dance, drama, cooking, art), academics (math, science, english, french, robotics and coding) and sports (soccer, basketball, fitness).

    Our goal throughout the summer is to help children discover what they love to do and learn more about what they love. For our youngest campers (our juniors), this means giving them an opportunity to practice the essential skills they will need as they continue to grow! For our older campers (our leadership group), we’ve created a unique program where our younger teens can explore their skills and learn more about what they can do to make their communities a better place. With our #KIDSCAN entrepreneurship program, each of our camp locations takes the initiative to raise funds for local charity of their choice.

    Our purpose at Laurus is to implement a healthy lifestyle in everything that we do. The motivation behind our daily smoothies, our zumba and yoga classes is to show our future leaders a lifestyle that is good for you inside and out and is most of all fun!

    We hope that our LSC family continues to grow and that our dream of sparking discovery in the hearts and minds of all the campers we interact with every day continues to be our reality.

    Best,

    Alexandra Hiscox

    Director of Camp Operations

    • Parent Testimonial

      For the past 3 years, our boys, 10 and 13, have been attending Laurus Summer Camp for the entire summer. From the various activities - fundraising for causes, sports, and cooking to the phenomenal counsellors - their summers are filled with joy. This camp inspires children to reach their full potential, it builds their confidence, and gets them thinking about the environment. I guarantee your children will skip out of bed to get to LSC camp!

    • Parent Testimonial

      I can certainly understand why we cannot convince our son to attend any other summer camp, even after 4 years.  Laurus Summer Camp is by far his favorite place to spend his summer holidays!  The instructors are awesome, each one is so attentive to the campers and incredibly dynamic.  The STA program is so diverse, allowing the kids to explore several different activities although our son prefers their sports, sports and more sports!  The lunch program is really helpful and the drop off location is so convenient for parents.  We are so grateful to have stumbled onto Laurus Summer Camp over 4 years ago and we leave our son at the camp 5-7 weeks per summer with peace of mind knowing that Ava and crew are really looking after him and that he’s so happy to be there.  Thank you Laurus team, keep up the amazing job!  See you in 6 months!

    • Parent Testimonial

      This summer was our first at Laurus Summer Camp. What really makes Laurus stand out to me? The counsellors! They are friendly and energetic while having the maturity to deal with high energy kids. My son came home happy and excited to tell me about his day - EVERY DAY.  We haven't experienced this with the other day camps he previously attended.  He enjoyed ordering lunches several times a week, and ending his day with a refreshing smoothie.  I loved that his days were well-rounded, filled with sports, crafts, science, and charity projects. We are already looking forward to next summer!  

    • Parent Testimonial
