Summer Camps In Ottawa

Starting to think about what the kidlets will do everyday this summer (other than drive you crazy)? We’ve got a few really great ideas for camps in the Ottawa area.

Though the weather these days might be near frightful, our thoughts are turning to summer (yes, summer!)…and to summer camps (yes, summer camps!) for our kidlets. We like to send our kids to camp every summer as a part of developing their independence (and to recover our own). They love it for the activities, the experiences and the enjoyment; we love it for the quiet house we have while they’re gone, and of course the amazing experiences they have and skills they develop.

If you’re looking for camps this summer, we have the inside scoop on where to get information. If you have never sent your child to camp, here’s a great article on five things to know about summer day camps. For those interested in overnight camps, here is an informative article on preparing your child for overnight camp.

Capital Wave
Do your wee ones want to try water polo this summer? Ottawa’s Capital Wave Water Polo Club offers programs for fun and fitness for all boys and girls aged 6 and up. In the Initiation and Development programs, athletes learn the rules of the game and basic skills such as swimming strokes and ball handling. They also improve their swimming skills and participate in local scrimmages. Check out the summer program and catch the WAVE!

Andrea S Photography
Andrea L Sedgwick Photography Studio’s Summer Camps, located in Stittsville, are offering a unique opportunity for children and teens to learn about photography and editing in a fun, hands-on environment.

Camp Awakening
This special camp is a registered charity providing an integrated summer camp with outdoor recreation & leadership programs for youth with physical disabilities. Their traditional summer camp programs for boys and girls operates out of two mainstream camps in Ontario – Kilcoo Camp for boys near Minden and Camp Oconto for girls north of Kingston. Campers enjoy wilderness adventures through their canoe-tripping program, and traditional in-camp activities such as swimming, sailing, kayaking, land sports, ropes course, climbing tower, horseback riding, archery and handicrafts.

If you’re looking for more traditional camps, try Golden Lake Camp, Camp Nominingue (boys only), Red Pine Camp, Arrowhead Camp, the City of Ottawa Summer Camps and Dovercourt Day Camps.

If a special-interest camp is something your child might like, you might want to check out Pawsitively Pets, Mad Science, Queenswood Stables, Carleton Sports Camp or the camps at The Canada Science and Technology Museum.
