Message from the Mayor

Everyone looks forward to the return of warm breezes, green grass and longer days of spring and summer. What better way to celebrate the spring thaw than to get outside and enjoy it with some classes and camps.

There is a wide range of outdoor activities to choose from; things we've been waiting all winter to get out and do. I invite everyone to look through this guide and find something you can do for a week, a few weeks or book an entire summer with camps.

The camps are for kids, but there are still many opportunities for grownups to learn new activities, play new sports and develop new hobbies. Or, spend your time exploring the skills you already have.

Of course, if the great outdoors aren't for you, there are plenty of great indoor classes offered at recreation facilities year round.

City of Ottawa classes are affordable, convenient and offer a variety of options second to none. Inside or outside, rain or shine, something is going on in your neighbourhood. Check it out!

Mayor Jim Watson
