Canada Traditional Summer Camps

Canada Traditional Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Canada traditional summer camps introduce kids and teens to a variety of different sports, arts, enrichment, and special events activities in a safe, friendly, and inviting environment. Whether it's creating friendship bracelets at arts and crafts, scoring goals on the hockey rink, or waterskiing on one of the Great Lakes, campers can do it all at Canada traditional summer camps. Canada summer camps are staffed by teachers, educators, and coaches who provide quality instruction and supervision as campers travel to various activities.

There are many subtle differences that distinguish Canada traditional summer camps from each other. Some camps allow campers to choose their own schedule (these camps are called "free choice" programs), while others offer a structured program preselected by the camp. Some Canada traditional camps offer religious programs, while others are nondenominational. When it comes to competition, some camps are strictly non-competitive, while others encourage healthy competition to help campers improve. Regardless of the program that families choose, traditional summer camps help boys, girls, and teens make friends, build confidence, and enjoy an incredible summer experience in the great outdoors!

Choosing the Best Canada Traditional Summer Camp

There are many important questions your family should consider when choosing a Canada traditional summer camp. Does the program offer a variety of activities, or do they concentrate on just a few specialties? Does the camp encourage competition, and if so, at what level? Do campers choose their own schedule, or does the camp provide one for them? What is the average age of the staff? What is the camp's staff and camper annual return rate? What values does the camp look to instill by the end of the summer? Knowing which program elements will suite your children best is essential to choosing a great Canada traditional summer camp.
