Summer Day Camps

Summer Day Camps (Kindergarten to Grade 5)


With a long history of offering exceptional experiential education to students, we are proud to incorporate these principles which build resilience and leadership in our camp program. 

Students in Grades 1-8 will have the opportunity to brush up on academic skills, engage in fun activities with other students and experience life on both our main campus and our outdoor education site while following physical distancing protocols. 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.

A fresh and nutritious lunch is provided daily for campers. 

Note: Safety is our highest priority and we will follow all Ministry of Health recommendations with regards to COVID-19. Should the site be closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, families will be given full refunds.
