Intermediate and Senior Programs

Exciting Activities to Challenge Yourself

For this summer, we have divided our Intermediate Program to create better learning experiences for our summer camp participants. Campers entering Grade 4 to Grade 6 in September will continue to join our Intermediate Program, whereas campers entering Secondary I to Secondary III will join the Senior Program. Campers in both sections will choose one of four available streams for each session. These streams will help maintain camper safety by improving physical distancing. Each stream is carefully designed to provide a variety of different types of activities that fit the campers’ interests.

What's in a day?

The Intermediate and Senior camper’s day is divided into three separate periods (two 1.5 hour periods and one 3 hour period) which are in turn punctuated by recreation and social time breaks. If you are registering your child for our Explorations Intermediate or Senior Program, you are invited to select a stream, which will last for the entire Session. If you are registering for both sessions, you will choose another stream for Session 2. Each stream contains three distinct activities that work together to create a balanced camp day.
