Day camps provide daily activities where a camper may choose to sign up for one week or an entire summer. Campers are dropped off by parents (or bussed in) each morning and picked up each evening. Some day camps offer inclusion support for campers with special needs.
Check your local Recreation or Leisure Guide for more details including deadlines for applications! These are typically published four times a year and available in your local newspaper, at your local community centre or library, and on-line.
