Feature Stories

Looking for something fun for your kids over the March break that doesn’t involve video games and devices? Registration is now open for the City’s March break camps. Check out the eGuide.

Range of activities

The camps offer a wide variety of activities, in both languages, for children between the ages of 4 and 14. All courses are run by certified instructors who will lead your children through fun, educational and entertaining activities on themes like:

  • Visual arts
  • Animation
  • Cooking
  • Science and technology

For kids who love physical activity, you’ll find sports camps that take them in the pool, on the ice and on the basketball court. Remember, swim camps are very popular and fill up first, so register soon!

New offerings for 2020

This year, we’re offering a bunch of new camps at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre, including:

  • The art of puppetry
  • Bollywood dance
  • Circus arts

You’ll also find single-day camps at South Fallingbrook Community Centre. And for older children, we’re offering certification programs for babysitting and the National Lifeguard Society. Check out the eGuide for any prerequisites.

It’s super easy to register. Just sit down with your child and explore the eGuide for any activities that sparks their passion. Then follow these simple steps:
