Summer camps and other camps

Summer camps

At this time, spring and summer programs, including camps, are still running as planned. Spring programs will be adjusted once we confirm the reopening date of our facilities and programs. We encourage you to register your children as you normally would. Rest assured that should there be any cancellations due to COVID-19, that you will be refunded without penalty.

We will continue to update this page with new information, as the situation evolves.

Please note: Registration for summer camps for the week of August 31 to September 4 has been postponed until May 15 at 9 pm.

This registration delay is to avoid inconveniencing clients, given the high-probability that children will return to school this week. The City of Ottawa anticipates that the Ministry of Education will confirm school start dates in early May.

March break camps

March break camps have been canceled due to facility closures from COVID-19. Registration for camps have been closed. Refunds will be granted for those who registered.

Winter holiday camps


Winter break camps will be offered over the winter holidays. Registration barcodes for these programs will become available online July 20.
