Home & Summer Camp

Children's Aid summer camps are designed to combat summer learning loss by ensuring that children are engaged in learning all year round. Each summer, we implement a theme-based program, which encompasses project-based learning, the arts and cultural outings, sports and fitness, healthy living, and career exploration, which occur throughout the city.

  • Combating summer weight gain:  Due to increased sedentary time and opportunities to overeat high caloric foods, children are susceptible to gaining weight during the summer months. Children's Aid combats this trend by engaging children in rigorous fitness activities and cooking and gardening programs that promote healthy eating.
  • Expressive arts:  Children's Aid places high value on the arts and as with all forms of learning, we want to ensure that children have opportunities to discover talents, foster creative thinking and build self-esteem all year long. Summer arts include drama, dance and arts and crafts.
  • Promoting awareness through exploration: Youth have the opportunity to venture into the larger city, participating in fun, educational field trips that complement the summer camp theme, promote academic progress and foster positive social and emotional development.

Camp hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with extended hours available from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
