The new year may have just started, but it’s already time to start making plans for March Break, scheduled for March 13-17. You can explore March Break programs and camps starting next Monday, January 9 on the City’s new registration system register.ottawa.ca. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to create your account before online registration opens on Wednesday, January 25 at 9 pm.

March Break camps include a wide variety of activities, offered in English and French for children aged 4-14 years old. You can choose from both in-person and virtual camp options where children can learn new or enhance existing skills in activities such as skating, swimming, basketball, hockey, painting, drawing, junior science, cooking and babysitting.

With City of Ottawa Camp Energy and Camp Adventure, kids can get creative with crafts, sing songs, play interactive games and make new friends. Inclusive programming for all ages is also available. Through the new registration system, you can explore these camps and more by using filters for activity, time and day, age group, and location.

To create a new account, you will be asked to submit your email address and create a password. Fill in the form with your information and add other family members to your account. Saving your credit card information (Visa, Mastercard or American Express) in advance will also save you valuable time.

When preparing for registration day, it’s a good idea to browse and bookmark more than one of your preferred activities by creating a wish list for easy retrieval during registration. If your first choice is full, you can quickly get to your second or third choices.

A reminder that if you have an active membership (fitness, swimming, sport, etc.) or had 2022 Ottawa Hand in Hand financial assistance, your account was transferred and you will need to recover your password. Select “Forgot your password?” on the sign in page and request a password reset to receive a reset link in your email inbox.

The new registration system will continue to evolve and improve. Your comments and ideas are welcome as we continue our path forward to enhance your customer experience and keep you and your family active and engaged.
