The Child Experience Canada Summer Camps were created to give children ages 6-12 a fun and active summer. The programs are student led, and student planned. Sports, drama activities, and arts and crafts are the focus of their programs. Campers are encouraged to participate in all three activities every day. Also, the campers take part in games, songs, cheers, and team building exercises.

The main focus of The Child Experience Camps is to provide an affordable summer camp experience. Every day, the campers rotate to different stations several times. The stations include physical activities, arts and crafts, drama, and games. There are scheduled visits to parks, pools, and splash pads within their community on a weekly basis. The camps also have field trips, usually on the second and fourth weeks to a variety of destinations within Toronto. Additionally, inter-camp events occur, where two or three camp locations come together for competitions and activities.

Leadership and team building skills are just some of what the kids come away with. Campers who attend The Child Experience Summer Camps are inspired to be leaders and counselors.
