About the program

2023 Summer Camp Memories!

Summer camp is a chance for kids to explore and connect, to learn about themselves and others, and to have free time to focus on their passions.

Camp provides many opportunities: making friends and memories, singing songs, playing sports and games, climbing trees, swimming, and creating, to name a few. In my youth, I looked forward to camp for all these reasons.

Most importantly, camp was a place I always felt I belonged.

Since 1983, thousands of children have attended Upper Canada Child Care (UCCC) licensed day camps. Our camps focus on building positive relationships and our programming reflects campers’ interests. We’re outdoors as much as possible at local parks, green spaces, and splash pads, building forts, scavenger hunts, art in the park and sports. We also go on a weekly field trip to beaches, conservation areas, and major GTA attractions.

We hope you’ll join us!
