Brampton families have a wide choice of local summer camps to choose from! Is your little camper looking for an outdoor adventure? Or some indoor fun with arts, crafts or dance? There is something for everyone!
When choosing a camp, questions you may want to ask include:
- What is the ratio of instructors to campers?
- What activities does the camp offer? Are there special field trips? Camp themes?
- What are the drop-off/pick-up times? Are there extended care options? Is there an additional fee?
- What should you send with your camper? It’s common to send nut-free snacks and lunch, water and juice, a refillable water bottle, and sunscreen (for outdoor play) but ask ahead to be sure.
- Is busing available? Is there an additional fee for this service?
- Is there a discount for two or more siblings?
You may also want to start your search early. Many camps offer early bird discounts, and a lot sell out well before summer. I’ll be updating this page with camp information as I find it, so please continue to check back!
