    Types of programming offered

    Winter break camps, like March break camps, tend have very flexible scheduling and hours. Many have both full- and part-day programs. And many also have other convenient options, such as booking two, three, or any other number of days per week.

    Winter break camps have a wide variety of programming for your child. Like other winter camps, they offer both indoor and outdoor activities. This includes sports programs, like swimming, skating, and taekwondo. It also includes educational programs, like debate, computers, and science, and arts programs, like dance (including ballroom, hip hop, ballet, breakdancing, and jazz) and music.  

    Benefits of these camps

    The winter or holiday break is usually at least two weeks. If your family isn’t going on an exotic vacation, a camp or program can be a great option for your child. Whether your child enrolls in a full- or half-day camp, or whether they attend for a full week (or two) or a few days a week, these camps can be a great way to “break up” the winter break.

    Search our list of winter break camps in Canada, above. This includes camps in TorontoWindsorOntarioMontrealQuebec, and across Canada. Most of these are specialized camps focusing on a specific activity, such as gymnastics. Others, though, offer a wider range of activities.
