General information & Camp Guidelines

About Us

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, 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.

General

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, etc. Campers will enhance their imagination, learn through movement/play and be physically active!

Does MSVU Day Camps have dedicated spaces for children who may require additional support to participate?

All registration applications are treated equally. When completing the registration process, you will need to provide details of any medical conditions, allergies, disabilities and any other related needs your child may have in order to actively participate.

MSVU Day Camps may deem it necessary to meet with the child and parent/guardian(s) to work collaboratively to develop a potential accommodation plan, if appropriate. Your position in the registration queue will not be impacted during this process.

If it is determined that a child’s needs can be reasonably accommodated in the MSVU Day Camp by increasing the staff to child ratio (current ratio: 1 leader to less than 10 children), acceptance into the program will be dependent on recruitment of qualified staff.

If, after acceptance to MSVU Day Camps, it is determined that a child has needs beyond those that can be supported within a 1 leader to 10 children ratio, the child’s participation may be suspended until a time it can be determined if reasonable accommodations can be made and when they can be put in place.

Ages

The Mount’s Summer Day Camps are for children ages 5 years up to 12 years old

Camp Guidelines

Check out our printable, Summer Camp Guideline in the Registration Package (PDF). This guideline provides information on what to bring, what not to bring, drop off & pick up procedures, disciplinary code, allergies & medication, etc.
