Mom Im Bored

Ahh, summertime. What’s not to love? Sunshine, warm weather, holidays, weekend road trips, reconnecting with neighbours you haven’t seen all winter, outdoor swimming pools and spray parks…the kids home for six to eight hours a day unsupervised while you’re at work…

The first day of summer is June 20, and shortly thereafter the kids get out of school for summer holidays, and that’s why we’ve researched and put together this extensive list of summer camps and programs to help you keep the kids occupied all day long while you’re at work. Just be sure to register early, great camps like these don’t stay empty for long!

Please visit each group’s website for full programming information, updates, registration, and camp/program prices.
