Welcome to the Mount’s Summer Day Camp Programs, where fun and safety are always our top priorities! Our Summer, In-service and March Break Day Camps offer a wide range of energetic and exciting activities for children in elementary school.
Since 1983, we have become a leader in offering unique and meaningful active day camp experiences for children in Halifax and surrounding areas. From athletic and recreational games in the gymnasium, to art activities and crafts, to outdoor adventures and scavenger hunts around our beautiful campus and weekly swim trips at the Canada Games Centre, we ensure a fun-filled, safe, and active experience for your child! Our camp Leaders and Coordinators are qualified, experienced Mount students, with many aspiring to teach or work with children through our Child & Youth Studies program or Bachelor of Education program.
Our programs are structured to engage the whole child and create a lasting impression of fun, friends, and memorable experiences. Take a look at our many day camps coming up and other children’s programs offered through the Mount Fitness Centre.
We are recreational theme based day camp. Structured Recreational Programming, based on weekly themes, allows our campers to be kids! Our activities include a variety of games, crafts, outdoor adventure, swim trips, etc. Campers will enhance their imagination, learn through movement/play and be physically active!
The Mount’s Summer Day Camps are for children entering grades PR-6 in September
