Summer Camp

For kids who have completed JK to Grade 2
(born in 2016 to 2019)

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

* Summer camp programs will run for 8 weeks. There will be no summer camp program offered the last week of August.

What does a typical day look like?
We have a balance of indoor and outdoor play, special guests, field trips and cooking experiences. 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)
We will provide an afternoon snack daily and a pizza lunch one day a week. Please send your child with a morning snack daily and lunch 4 days per week. See Bag Lunch Policy Here
