Summer 'In Person' & Virtual Camp Guide 2020
Summer Camp season is underway and parents are making plans for their children. Some kids will attend day programs, while others will enjoy new online experiences. Some camps offer specialized activities, or include a little bit of everything. Regardless of the exact ingredients, kids will learn the true meaning of what summer camp is all about. Whether your child loves science, sports, drawing, robotics, cooking, theatre — or just having fun, there's a camp option in the city and a bit beyond. Plan the perfect summer adventure for your child! Our Summer Camp Guide will help you find the best programs for kids!
COVID-19 Update: Residential (Overnight) Camps have been cancelled for the season so these have been removed from this Guide. We have added a new section for Virtual Camps as many camps pivot their services to an online platform, giving kids much needed guided activities while parents get at chance to work at home or do other things. The best part? You can attend one of these virtual camps from anywhere! There are also services to provide 'camp at your home'.
We are doing our best to indentify 'in-person' camps that are going ahead under the new safety guidelines (some are still in the process of making decisions), and those who have already cancelled camps for the season. Ultimately, it's best check the camps' websites listed in this guide for final information. Check back often as this guide will be updated daily.
