There are both summer and winter camps in Manitoba.There are also day and overnight (or residential) options. These camps offer numerous sports programs, including soccer, tennis, sailing, waterskiing, swimming, baseball and taekwondo. They also offer arts programs, such as dance, drama, and music. And some have educational programs, like computer, debate and public speaking, science, and math.
Some of these camps are traditional camps which offer a wide variety of activities for your child to participate in. Others are specialty camps which have a more narrow focus. These camps allow your child to learn and develop a specific ability, skill, or trait, such as dance or martial arts.
