If you’re a working parent, PA or Professional Activity days can be inconvenient. Depending on the age of your child, you may need to arrange for your child to be looked after. Luckily, in Canada, there are many PA day camps, including in Toronto, Oakville, EtobicokeLondonMississaugaWindsor, Guelph, Orangeville, Edmonton, and Calgary.

Kinds of PA day camps

There are PA day camps and programs for children of many ages. This includes camps for children just starting out in school (or preschool), to children in middle or high school. Moreover, for your convenience, many of these camps allow you to register your child in advance for all PD days during the school year.

PA or PD day camp


Some PA day camps have a wide variety of activities throughout the day, including games, arts and crafts, cooking, sports, and educational activities. Other camps offer more specialized programming. For instance, they may focus on a sport, such as hockey, soccer, or martial arts, or an artistic activity, such as dance or music, or an intellectual endeavour, such as math, science, debate.

Most of these camps will provide you with a daily schedule of activities. They should also let you know when your child needs to be dropped off and picked up. And, they may also provide some snacks, sometimes meals, for your child (you should inquire about this).

What to expect

PA or PD day camps listed here have a number of important features. These include following:

  • Qualified staff
  • Proper supervision
  • A safe and caring environment
  • A protocol for communicating with parents
  • A daily schedule
  • Interesting and fun activities
