For more than 40 years, Kanata Camps at Kanata Montessori has been offering day camp programs to our local community.
Our hiring and internal development program is a year long process, facilitated in a professional educational setting. This ensures that we have staff members who you can trust and who will serve as positive role models and play leaders for your child.
All of our staff and volunteers are certified in Standard First Aid & CPR. As well, 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 delivering specialty programs are leaders in their field with whom we work closely to ensure all our programs meet our high standards of safety and professionalism.
The Camp Day
These are the times for our camps, staff will not be available before or after these times.
Sign In: 8:30 am – 9:00 am
Sign Out: 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Each day starts and ends at one of Kanata Montessori's 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. It's possible to park at one location to drop one child off and walk to the other to drop another 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. Some are outdoor spaces, and most are within walking distance. For specialized activities (rafting, etc), campers will be transported on a school bus.
If arriving at 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.
