The Best Summer Day Camps in Ottawa



While there is still snow on the ground and a chill in the air, parents in Ottawa are setting their sights on the summer calendar. School will end in a few months and we want to keep the kids busy on those hot summer days. Ottawa has many summer camp options for kids of all ages—and we’ve rounded up a few of the best ones to make your search that much easier.

In Ottawa East we love the Humane Society’s Off-Leash Camp. Perfect for animal lovers aged 6-10, kids will get a chance to hang out with furry,  four-legged friends and learn about working with animals, grooming, animal rescue, dog walking and more.

In Ottawa South we love the unique camps put on by the Old Ottawa South Community Association. While we know that kids love soccer or art camps, how excited would they be to attend a Star Wars themed camp? Or a week of superhero camp? They’ve got a long list of camps for kids of all ages. Click here to see more of our picks in Ottawa South. 

In Ottawa Centre and Gatineau we love the Ottawa U Science and Engineering Camps. From Minecraft to LEGO, we already know that our kids love engineering (even if they don’t know it yet!). Whether they are all about the 3D printer, circuit boards or making something out of blocks, the STEM activities on offer will hold their interest like no other. Click here to see more of our picks in Ottawa Centre and Gatineau.
