Montréal offers some 150 municipal day camps (run by the city or partner organizations) spread out among the city’s 19 boroughs. More than 15,000 youth ages three to 17 attend Montréal’s day camps each year.
Camps offer activities over a seven- to eight-week period, from the time schools close for the summer through the last week of August. Parents can sign up their children for one week or longer.
The day camp program includes one field trip each week, either within Montréal or outside the city. Most day camps offer a variety of activities, but some specialize in sports, arts, science, cooking, languages, etc.
Rates, activities, schedules and programs differ from one camp to another. A number of camps offer family rates and day care service in the morning and late afternoon. Teenagers can gain experience in supervising children by working as volunteer camp monitors.
As well, many camps are especially for children with physical or mental disabilities and offer personalized supervision.
