Summer Camp

For kids who have completed JK to age 12

Our Summer Camp program offers weekly sessions in July and August, welcoming current RisingOaks' families and other children in the community.

What does a typical day look like?
We have a balance of indoor and outdoor play, special guests, field trips and cooking experiences. Some program elements may change or be eliminated based on COVID-19 requirements.

Spending as much time as possible outdoors, your child has the opportunity for rich learning experiences and plenty of fresh air and sunshine. Group games, water activities, walks are just a few adventures your children will experience.
 
Inside, kids do creative activities focused on their interests; this includes project work. There is lots of opportunity for socializing.
 
Our hours are 6:30 am - 6:00 pm and you choose the time of drop off and pick up.
(Note: Hours may vary by centre)

Adjustments due to COVID-19

  • Registration will continue as usual and our temporary COVID-19 cancellation policy remains in effect for the 2022 season.
  • If we need to cancel your space or the program does not operate, a full refund will be provided.
  • Field trips for Sr. Camp will be reduced to one (1) per week and be specific to outdoor parks and conservation areas where physical distancing and cohorting are easier to maintain.
  • Jr. Camp will have a weekly special guest.
  • We will advise later on if mandatory screening is still in affect.
