Summer Day Camps
$450 per week
Students entering Kindergarten – Grade 5 (campers must be 4 years of age at the time of camp) will love our traditional outdoor summer camp, featuring nature activities, games, sports, crafts and challenges. Every week has an exciting theme. Campers will complete weekly STEAM challenges and experience life on both our main campus and our nearby outdoor education site.
All programs will feature key elements of the Pickering College experience such as skills for global leadership, outdoor education, radio broadcasting on our station 102.7 CHOP FM, community engagement, mindfulness, public speaking and prototyping.
With a long history of offering exceptional experiential education to students, your child will have the opportunity to build new skills as well as a fun summer camp experience. A fresh and nutritious lunch is provided daily for campers in our beautiful dining hall.
Space is limited so please register early.
Note to returning families - we are using a new system for camp registration this year.
