Camp in Brantford makes learning fun! Children as young as 5 years old participate in various activities such as sports, arts, or technology activities in order to explore interests.

Overnight camps offer a weeklong immersion in the experience, and you’ll also find kids’ programs listed above.
Brantford day camps help your child explore what they love. With activities packed in from the morning until the late afternoon, day camp fills the day with fun activities, social time, and time outdoors, away from screens. For example, at coding camps, your child learns how to solve problems both independently and collaboratively, using programming languages like Python. Some camps cover truly unique activities such as space exploration or Minecraft.
Day camp is an ideal introduction to camp, especially for introverted kids. They’re able to break away from the social environment during the evening to recharge and return the next morning. Kids can choose to specialise in a specific activity or try out all those that excite them in the list above. Some day camps offer special needs support for children with disabilities such as ADHD or dyslexia.
At all camps, your son or daughter learns how to work alongside a diverse group of kids their age. While some activities are divided by age, others mix kids of different ages together to help older campers lead younger ones. Some camps are multi-disciplinary, which allows kids and teens to try out various activities to find their specific interests.
Choosing the best camp for your son or daughter should begin early, as you get the opportunity to know all the camps available in detail. Of course, you’ll begin with the camp essentials that you, and your child, both believe are important, the camp’s location, price, age range, and listed activities. Make sure to include specific, fixed necessities you may need such as special needs support or before and after care.
After narrowing down your options, here are a few questions you may want to ask camp directors prior to enrollment:
Asking questions specific to your child’s character or learning style is also vital. For example, asking about how collaborative or independent camp work is may be beneficial whether your child is more extroverted or introverted.
