Camp 2019 is just around the corner and we are excited about all the things we have planned!
Upper Canada Child Care (UCCC) has a long and strong history providing day camps in the GTA for more than 30 years. However, we are not only relying on our experience; we are continually seeking ways to improve the camp experience for our clients.
A cornerstone of our day camp experience is our day trips. Twice a week, we pile onto a school bus, sing camps songs until we are hoarse and have a great day exploring a variety of venues. We could be having a scavenger hunt at Petticoat Creek Conservation Area, experiencing an adventure at Tree Top Trekking, or having a splashing good time at Wet ’n’ Wild water park. We foster a sense of belonging as we experience these venues as a team. We build self-esteem as we push ourselves outside our comfort zones trying new things and interacting with nature. We are so excited to take our campers on these fun trips.
The fun doesn’t stop there. We value getting outside to play. Outdoors, our voices can be loud, our movements can be big and our imaginations can soar. Games, sports, water-play, and investigating local parks and trails are favourite activities.
Finding a balance between planned activities and providing time for the children to unwind and pursue their own interests is of key importance. Part of that balance is strong leadership and we have developed a new training program this spring to further strengthen our experienced camp leads. The expertise provided by certified staff in the area of child development, can make a good camp experience even better!
Thank you for your interest in camp at Upper Canada Child Care and together we can make 2019 the greatest summer adventure!
