Looking for a camp in Nova Scotia? Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is a great educational camp offering the perfect combination of creativity, challenge, and fun.

Ross Creek camp has been the most amazing and supportive environment for my son Joey the last three summers. This camp allows him to be an individual and express his creative and imaginative side with no pressure to do it exactly like everyone else.

HalifaxNova Scotia

The province is home to a wide variety of camps like this, ranging from sailing camps to kids' fishing camps. Along the shoreline are camps that allow kids to explore marine wildlife in depth, including whales, dolphins and more.

There are a lot of arts options as well. This is, after all, the most famous seat of traditional music in the country, thanks to the communities on Cape Breton, though there are theatre and fine arts options as well. 

Day camp or overnight camp?

Kids day camps throughout the province, from Halifax to Cape Breton, make a wide variety of appeals to children and teens. These are ideally suited for local families, of course, but can be a great option for families taking an extended vacation in the area.

Nova Scotia overnight camps give kids and teens the full immersion in the Canadian camp experience. Kids meet others from out of their usual circle of friends and engage in typical kids' camp activities like canoeing, building a campfire, and outdoor games such as three-legged races and the like.

These camps also have a special appeal to kids and families from out of the province. Camps play host to kids from across Canada, but also American and other international kids and teens make Nova Scotia a destination for overnight camp. It's the perfect way to vacation in the province, have some time away from parents and explore the beauty of Canada's east coast. If you are interested in these types of camps both in Nova Scotia and elsewhere, you can explore fuller lists of day camps and overnight camps.
