March Break is just around the corner and if you haven’t had time to secure spots in a dynamic camp don’t worry! We have great March Break camp options in the Ottawa area for you that still have spots.

Depending on your location in the National Capital Region (NCR) you may find your March Break starts the week of March 6th or March 13th. If your child attends a private school March Breaks are generally two weeks in length starting March 10th. No matter when your March Break is there is lots of fun to be had throughout the entire NCR!
