Top Affordable summer camps and programs for 2024/2025

Find budget-friendly kids camps below

There are a wide variety of camps available for kids of different age groups. While many overnight and day camps are expensive, many camps go out of their way to make fees affordable or even cheap for parents with several children or who may just be cash-strapped. Day camps are an affordable option as compared to weekend camps or week-long camps. Campers can enjoy similar activities to those they would experience by going away and the costs are much more within your means. Fewer hours or less days can also help slash costs without taking away from the camp experience. Camps listed on this page have fees starting at $100 or less. Below the listings, read more helpful information, tips, and advice.  Read more

    Other ways to find affordable summer camps

    Many camps are subsidized by arts and education funding. We provide a list of charities and government subsidies to pay all or part of camp fees including Amici Camping Charity and Kids in Camp. You should also note that government subsidies are available for things like learning ESL, for which you may be eligible if you attend an ESL summer camp.

    A large number of summer camps offer discounts for early registration, full-season enrollment or multiple enrollments. Group or family enrollments are particularly beneficial and the large discounts can give you an affordable summer camping experience. There are also tax breaks for children's fitness offered by some provinces, including Ontario. The amount of the credit is based on adjusted gross income and applies to federal taxes only. Transport, meals and accommodation may also be subsidized at many of the reputed summer camps in Canada. Several nonprofit organizations run inexpensive and affordable summer camps each year, allowing kids to have a great camping experience in less money.

    Affordable summer camps and programs

    The benefits of affordable summer camps

    • Many types of camp. Camps that are budget-friendly are not reduced in quality. In fact, many unique, specialised, and traditional camps of the highest standard seek to make themselves accessible to all kids. These include technology, education, arts, and sports camps. For example, at technology camps, activities such as programming, engineering, space exploration, and robotics are available. Affordable tutoring and academic enrichment programs are available as well. Here, kids receive one-on-one instruction from certified educators.  Both struggling and eager students benefit from these continuing education camps. Affordable camps provide the same quality and daily excitement as any camp. 
    • Opens academic and professional opportunities. Camp is a unique growth opportunity for kids and teens, where they acquire skills and traits applicable to both academic and professional work. This includes adaptability, problem solving, leadership, responsibility, and more. Kids who’ve been to camp tend to be more academically successful. In fact, affordable summer camps are held by top universities such as York University in Toronto, Ontario. Other affordable camps specifically include help with postsecondary school applications. These include art camps where kids prepare portfolio material, test-taking camps (for SSATs or SATs), or high school credit camps. Camp offers many ways in which kids gain the skills and experience necessary to pursue academic and career goals.
    • Scholarships, discounts, and awards available. Along with cheaper fees, some camps offer need-based scholarships for families who require further financial support. Often, these scholarships are directed towards underprivileged and under-prioritized youth, including kids who identify as Black, Indigenous, or of colour (BIPOC). Extra funds are also available for families with below-average household incomes. Applying for—and receiving— these scholarships helps you stay on budget and ensure your child has an enjoyable, valuable camp experience. Further financial assistance can be found through a camps’ specific discounts, often attained through early enrollment (though conditions may apply). Consult with camps listed above for more information. We also encourage you to browse our list of financial aid, scholarships, and payment plans available.
    • Develops cognitive, social, and behavioural skills. Camps challenge and excite kids and teens by immersing them in activities that develop their cognitive, social, and behavioral skills. Some specialise in developing these skills, including brain enrichment or cognitive training camps. These help kids develop independence and confidence. These skills are further important for kids and teens with developmental disabilities such as ADHD or autism. In fact, some special education programs exist, where kids and teens with disabilities get the attention they require. Camp leaders work directly with kids to meet their cognitive, social, and behavioral needs.

    Choosing the right affordable summer camp

    Affordable summer camps recognize that you should not have to settle for a camp that fits within your budget. Available to ages 4-18, there are many day and overnight camps that cover a range of focuses. The most popular are traditional, multi-activity camps listed above, which give kids and teens a wide variety of learning fun. Activities like water sports, hiking, archery, and arts and crafts are present at these camps, though some focus on unique activities as varied as STEM, theatre performances, and wilderness training. Leadership skills can be gained from all camps.

    Day camps give kids and teens the opportunity to recharge in the evening and return to camp with a positive spirit daily. Day camp is a great starting-off point, as kids test the waters and grow in confidence. Overnight camps are another great option. Overnight camp packs in many more fun activities for kids and teens, such as movie nights or bonfires. Kids and teens are mixed in the camp lodgings at overnight camps, in an immersive experience. It’s an ideal opportunity for parents who want their child to develop more independence. 

    Lower fees are found in virtual programs or PA day camps. In online programs, kids work from home to complete a set of camp activities. While less involved, these camps do a great job of developing children’s skills, offering both collaboration and independent work. It’s also a more convenient option. Similarly, PA day camps run for a single day and pack in as many fun camp activities as possible. Only a single fee is required for these camps, typically below $100.

    As you search for the right camp for your son or daughter, here are some questions to keep in mind or to ask camp leaders:

    • What scholarships, discounts, or awards are available at this camp? What is the total fee after camp concludes? Are payments made per day, week, or for the total semester?
    • Are there any external awards, promo codes, or scholarships that parents can use for that you will accept?
    • Are camp leaders able to provide an itinerary prior to camp? Are children allowed to withdraw from certain activities?
    • Can camp leaders provide a packing list? If an item goes missing or is forgotten, can children share or use a camp-provided item?
    • At overnight camps, how are kids and teens split between cabins? Are these groups final, or can kids negotiate changes? 
    • What is the camper-to-instructor ratio? 
    • Does this camp provide feedback often? How detailed is it?
    • Does transportation and accommodation cost extra? Are you able to provide a breakdown of the cost of camp?
    • How do camp leaders manage and prevent conflict?
    • Is extra support available for children with special needs? Does this cost extra?
