Campers are playing a game of “Stand Up” to learn about team work.

At the start of the day, the kids have the opportunity to mingle all together as they go through their morning circle. They play games that will teach them how to work together as a team and finish their special task. After the circle, kids separate into their own age groups and do an activity together. Whether it be a sport or a game they love, their counsellors make it happen.

Keeping health and safety in mind, the camp makes sure their kids are happy and healthy by providing them with healthy and nutritious snacks. Every week, they also go to different excursions, keeping their summer exciting and fun-filled!

Boys and Girls Club ensures that the kids have learned vital skills they will need in the long run such as teamwork, communication skills, creativity and more. While the kids are with Boys and Girls club, they bring their own passion into play.
