Summer Day Camps

Summer Day Camps, for children aged 4-10 years, are really popular in Manor Park!  Families select from a variety of themed half-day camps, with the option of a free supervised lunchtime for those attending both morning and afternoon camp.  Extended camp hours (8:00-9:00am and/or 4:00-5:00pm) are offered for an additional fee at time of registration.

Camps take place in and around the Manor Park Community Centre. All camps combine active sports and games, arts & crafts, songs, and time in the splash pad.  Experienced instructors, with the support of high school students and junior leaders create the camp magic.  We have about 20 children per camp.

Campers should bring: a snack and/or lunch which is nut- and peanut-free, a bathing suit, reusable water bottle and towel for the splashpad, and water shoes are recommended. Sunscreen should be applied prior to arriving at camp or provided for the camper to apply themselves.

Please note:

  • Campers must have celebrated their 4th birthday prior to the first day of their camp. 
  • Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, upon completion of the online registration and receipt of full payment. 
  • Families are urged to register early to secure their preferred camp week or theme.
  • Refund Policies
