They’re convenient

With more than 80 facilities citywide, including pools, arenas and community centres, chances are there is a March Break class or camp happening near you.

They come in all shapes and sizes

Many camps last all week, and others are only one two or three days. So, whatever your schedule allows, there will be something that’s a perfect fit.

They’re sporty

Hockey. Basketball. Skating. Gymnastics, Running and more.

They’re artsy

Watercolours, Animation, Dance, Theatre, Sculpture and more.

There’s variety

Take a look at the wide variety of camps and themes. It’s not just one dance class. It’s theatre, hip-hop and a variety of dance styles. It’s not just one computer camp, but a choice between Animation, Robotics, Minecraft and Pokémon.

They’re cool

Learn how to make a movie, build a robot, or simply learn all the hottest dance moves.

They’re practical
