    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "Based upon UCCC's annual camp satisfaction surveys, camp programs are best known for weekly trips and the friendships that campers enjoy each summer. UCCC Camps are special because of the focus camp staff have on building strong relationships with and between campers, each other, and with families. Camp programs are grounded in the organizational values of safety, trust, support, respect, and professionalism and strive to achieve the vision of "a smile on each child's face...every day." UCCC is proud of the continued loyalty of customers returning year after year and their recommendations to family and friends as well as the high satisfaction scores received at the end of the summer. "

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "UCCC has an Outdoor Education and Camp Coordinator responsible for supporting employees in their programming and training. Camps are supervised and run by experienced and certified (RECE or equivalent such as B Ed or CYW) individuals who attend annual training to support trip safety, programming, and inclusion. All employees hold a valid Vulnerable Sector Check and Standard First Aid and CPR-C certification. All camp staff participate in camp training sessions.
    Camp employees reflect their diverse communities and strive to create a fun, welcoming camp. Jr Camper ratio is 1 staff to 13 children with a max group size of 26 campers; Sr Camper ratio is 1 staff to 15 children and a max group size of 30 campers.

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "UCCC does not have a screening process as all are welcome in our camps. Registration for our programs is limited by our capacity. A wait list is maintained as needed. A registration request form is available on our website (uppercanadachildcare.com) camp page and is forwarded to the supervisor who will confirm available space and send the registration link and payment authorization. Registration is more detailed because UCCC camps operate in licensed child care environments. Full registration can be cancelled up to June 1. After June 1, any deposit made will be forfeited. Supporting camp information and calendars of events are provided to new registrants closer to camp start. "

    The Our Kids review of Upper Canada Child Care Summer Camps

    our take

    One of the best perks of camp is making new lifelong friendships. Upper Canada Child Care (UCCC) Summer Camps is known for the friendships it fosters, along with their weekly day trips. What can be seen as a traditional day camp, UCCC is a little more than that. Kids enjoy all of the fun activities daily, but absolutely can’t wait for the trips they get to do. Some of the best ones have included Wet N’ Wild Waterpark, Tree Top Trekking, and going to beaches and parks. Staff are very friendly and encouraging of kids being social and making many new friends. They are creative and find innovative activities for kids to do, like woodworking or playing with hammers and nails. Smaller class sizes make it easier to supervise the kids and give them the most attention. Their facilities are top-notch at Upper Canada College, and the camps are indicative of the fact that they are run by UCC.

    Paolo (Parent)Review: Saint Veronica Children's Centre Summer Camp

    Following the 2020 spring shut-down of the centre due to the Covid-19 outbreak, I enrolled my child into the SVCC Outdooor Summer Camp Program which was the first time that any of my children had ever been enrolled in an all-day, every-day summer activity. I initially had my concerns and reservations about my child’s re-entry into the building after such a layoff but Nicole and the Summer Camp Team were always personable, honest, lively and showed genuine concern for the well-being of my child and his social development. From the end of his very first day and his first “Outdoors in the Forest” experience my child always knew that he was safe and happy and I felt immeasurably relieved at the same time. ... Read More

    Stephen and Susan (Parent)Review: Prince of Peace Children's Centre : Summer Camp

    We had such a good experience we decided to use Upper Canada for summer camp in 2014 for both our girls (at the time aged 3 and 5). The only issue we had was our girls no longer liked to stay at home and preferred camp! The summer camp is unreal with lots of activities and very cool trips. We then enrolled our eldest daughter Sekora in the after school program and when Selanne joined elementary school she also joined. Similar experience, both loved it. To the point that daddy would get upset sometimes during pick up when the girls did not want to leave ... Read More

    Anonymous (Parent)Summer Camp Survey Feedback - Little Rouge Children's Centre

    We have come to know and love the centre and providers. We were nervous that it would be a weirdly clinical experience for our kids (daycare and camp) due to COVID. However, the staff did a fantastic job of maintaining that warm, welcoming and truly loving experience we’ve come to know and love from little rouge. Our girls both love their providers and both have had excellent experiences that didn’t feel that much different from normal, which we really appreciate. ... Read More

    Sandra (Parent)Reference Letter

    November 5, 2020 To whom it may concern, I am pleased to provide a reference letter in regards to Upper Canada Child Care. Both of my children are attending the before and after care programs at the centre located in St. Veronica and have attended their summer camps as well over the last few years. I have the utmost confidence in their program. The staff is so caring, friendly and well organized. Communication is great and the supervisors always respond to any of my queries in a timely manner. They have implemented the use of Storypark so I get to see pictures and read stories of what my kids participated in that day. Seeing my kids' smiles on their faces in those pictures is so nice. They have revamped their program over the years and have introduced a "nature" element in all of their programs. My kids attend the forest on a weekly basis and they truly enjoy that outdoor time which is very important, especially these days. I know that my children are safe and in great care. My kids truly do enjoy their time there and they have many fun activities planned for the kids all the time. I would highly recommend this child care centre to all families. Yours Truly, Sandra ...

    Anonymous (Parent)Alliston Union Summer Camp Survey Feedback

    My son loved being with the team this year despite restrictions. He loved the special crafts they created which I’m assuming was because of the smaller class sizes and manageability but he loves crafts and thought they were really interesting! ... Read More

    Alicia Gallone (Parent)Dear Upper Canada Child Care Camp

    Thank you for a great summer! The staff were very friendly and communicated with me on a daily basis. When there was an event, I knew well in advance of what I needed to bring and what was planned. The trips the centre picked were fun. My daughter always came home excited and told me all kinds of things about what she did that day. I would bring my daughter again to the Summer Camp program at Upper Canada Child Care. Thank You.

    Director's Message

    Nicole Comrie-Bain, Outdoor Education and Camp Coordinator
    RECE, Forest School Practitioner

    Summer camp is a great opportunity for children to freely explore, dive more deeply into what they love doing, and create lasting memories. 

    In my experience, adults who were fortunate to go to summer camp look back on those experiences with nostalgia and happiness. We remember the friendships we made, the songs we sang, the games we played, the trees we climbed  and our days at the beach swimming in the hot afternoon sun. Camp wasn’t just a way to pass summer break; it was something I looked forward to each year, a place I belonged. 

    Since 1983, Upper Canada Child Care’s licensed day camps have been providing many of those opportunities to thousands of children. 

    UCCC camps strive to build positive relationships with our campers and create programming that reflects our campers’ interests.  Much of the program takes place outdoors; we utilize local parks, green spaces, and splash pads whenever possible. We value all the benefits the outdoors provides. Our outdoor experiences may include large group games, building forts, scavenger hunts, art in the park and sports.  In addition, we go on a weekly field trip to a variety of places including, beaches, conservation areas, and some major attractions in the GTA. These trips allow our campers to experience something new, seek adventure, and most importantly, have fun!

    Come join us this summer!

    • Upper Canada Child Care added a Forest School

      We were so excited to open our first Forest School in September 2021.  It has added so much to our knowledge about children and learning outdoors.  Our Outdoor Education Coordinator  and our Camp Coordinator are both Forest School Certified and have been running our Forest School Program at White Pines from the beginning.  Their knowledge and its impact on our camp programs will be significant.

      We have noticed through the pandemic, that being able to get outdoors has allowed more freedom and less stress caused by COVID-19 protocols.  As a licensed care provider, who also provides camp programs  our protocols are very stringent, so time outdoors has been and will continue to be very important in our programs.  

      Since September it has been our priority to bring our preschool classes and their educators to White Pines Forest School throughout the year to benefit both children and educators. Their adventures in varied weather/seasons foster outdoor education and its implementation in all of our programs.  

      We hope to see you outside!
