For more than 40 years, Kanata Camps at Kanata Montessori has been offering day camp programs to our local community. Each year we add new activities, events and camps to keep up to date with current trends, keep things exciting and to provide new opportunities to our local community. Our hiring and internal development program is a year long process facilitated in a professional educational setting, which ensures we have staff members who you can trust and who serve as positive role models and play leaders for your child. All of our staff and volunteers are certified in Standard First Aid & CPR, and all adults have full criminal background checks to ensure the safety of your child. Daily activities are planned and reviewed in advance by senior programming staff and management so you can expect a well-balanced and age-appropriate schedule full of fun and skill-developing activities. Our partners in delivering specialty programs are leaders in their field with whom we work with closely to ensure all our programs meet our high standards of safety and professionalism.
ABOUT OUR CAMPS
Our programs are organized by age groups, as we know from experience that campers like to be with friends with similar interests and abilities. To register you must set up an account. We have provided a link to the ACCOUNT SET UP below.
However, you can still browse all our camps before setting up your account. To look at the camps you can go also search by filtering according to a few different search categories. To browse camps, set up your account and to register we have provided links below.
An important note for our past camp participants. We will no longer be offering single-day drop-in options for specific days of a camp. All camps are week-long and the fee structure and staffing are organized around this model.
Please note we do not offer any camps during the week after the holiday weekend in August. This year there are no camps from August 1 through August 5th, 2022.
Currently, we do not have a published camp brochure, as many details are subject to change through the spring, including activity descriptions. Camps will become visible in our registration system as we enter them, and we will continue to add them over the next number of months as restrictions and capacities change, so please check back often.
REGISTRATION IS ONLINE ONLY.
We encourage you to add your child to the waitlist if camps are full so that you are the first to hear about the increased spaces or additional camps. If you need assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
THE CAMP DAY
These are the times for our camps, staff will not be available before or after these times.
Sign In: 8:30am – 9:00am
Sign Out: 4:00pm – 4:30pm
Please remember to complete the Covid school/child care screening tool prior to arriving.
Each day starts and ends at one of Kanata Montessori Schools two Campuses:
The Main Campus at 355 Michael Cowpland Drive or;
The Ridge Campus at 275 Michael Cowpland Drive.
The location of your camp is specified in the registration details of the camp. The locations are less than a five minute walk apart, so if dropping children off, you can park at one location to drop one child off and walk to the other to drop the second child off. Children cannot walk unsupervised from one location to the other unless they are 12 or over and with a buddy.
Some of the camp groups will depart and spend the majority of the day at other locations including outdoor spaces, most within walking distance. For specialized activities (rafting, etc) campers will be transported on a school bus.
If arriving to camp after 9:15 am, please visit the reception desk at each location or find a member of the management team and we will help direct you to the group. For pick up, campers will be in their designated spots by 3:45 pm. If you need to collect your camper earlier, please call ahead or speak to the staff at drop off.
With COVID it has been a tough few years however we are looking forward to welcoming back the community. We have worked hard to expand our programming and this year Kanata Camps at Kanata Montessori has a summer day camp program for every age group from age 3 to age 15.
On our CAMPS pages we have listed camps as either multi-activity theme camps, or as special interest camps.
