Summer Day Camps for Kids in Ottawa


Even though it feels early in the year, we all know that the key to securing your child’s favourite summer camp is early planning. Summer camp registration is beginning across Ottawa and now is the time to sign  your child up for their favourite sport camp, music camp, art camp or other. We’ve rounded up some exciting and unique day camps for kids across Ottawa if you still aren’t sure where to send them for a week of fun.

Ottawa Humane Society Off Leash Camp

Animal-loving kids aged 6 through 10 will love the Ottawa Humane Society’s Off Leash Camp. They’ll learn about small animals, dog walking, enjoy crafts and presentations. The camp is available throughout the summer.

Music and Aviation Camp

Music will fly at the Canada Space and Aviation Museum and their Music and Aviation camp this summer in collaboration with Sonart Music School. Each day, children will enjoy music lessons, aerodynamic demonstrations, outside time and at the end of their week, they’ll perform in a concert!

Archery Camp

Your child can channel their inner Katniss Everdeen or Merida at Archery Camp offered by the RA Centre. Campers will receive instructions on basic archery shots and will even have a chance to build a bow to take home. Half the day is spent learning about and practicing archery and the other half is spent with the day camp.

Golf Camp

Take a swing into golf camp with the Ottawa Athletic Club. We love how the camp is offered for a wide range of ages. Kids aged 5 to 14 can improve their golf skill and learn golfing fundamentals. The camp is offered at Falcon Ridge Golf Club.

Summer Camp at the Farm

This is a very popular camp each year and while most sessions are already full, there is still space for the Junior Farmer’s Camp for kids aged 12-14. Campers will help care for the farm animals and gain hands-on experience as farmers right here in Ottawa.

Neighbourhood camp with the YMCA

At your local YMCA, kids will experience a variety of day camp activities like swimming and playing in the gymnasiums. Camps are available for kids as young as age 4 and up to aged 16. The YMCA provides neighbourhood day camps with fun themes like weird science and food fiasco, but also outdoor day camps where kids can be bused to a camping experience in the great outdoors.

Engineering and Science Camps at the University of Ottawa

Reach new heights when it comes to STEM with the University of Ottawa engineering and science day camp. They are offered on campus at the University, and at various satellite locations across the City – Orleans, Barrhaven and Kanata locations will be confirmed in May. Camps include engineering, science camps, and medicine camp where kids can learn about medicine, the human body and the role of doctors.

Ottawa Senators Hockey Camp

Your rising hockey star can shoot and score all summer long at the Ottawa Senators Hockey Camp. This development camp is offered at three different locations (with multiple camps happening all summer long) and will help your child improve their game, and most importantly, their love of the game.

Canoe Club Camp

The Canoe Club Camp will introduce campers to a variety of paddle sports including kayaking and canoeing and will also provide campers the opportunity to swim and play field sports. Life jackets are provided, although campers can bring their own. The week-long camp takes place at the Rideau Canoe Club and is available all summer long for kids aged 7-12.

Pottery and Dance

If your child isn’t sure what type of camp they want – something hands on and creative, or an active camp full of movement – why not combine them both at the Shenkman Arts Centre Pottery and Dance camp! This camp is offered weekly and split into two aged groups; 6-8 and 9-12.
