Summer Day Camp

Summer day camps are offered for children ages 5-13 years and for youth ages 14-17 years.

We offer French and English programs for all 9 weeks of the summer. The French programs are offered in the new classrooms for weeks 1 to 5 and the English programs are offered in the existing classrooms. Then the locations of the French and English programs are switched for weeks 6 to 9. These programs run simultaneously and independently of each other. The only time we anticipate the campers from each program to mix is when using shared space in the hallways and washrooms.
 
Programs

The Magnetic Hill Zoo offers week long fun and educational day camp experiences for children ages 5-13 years and include activities such as games, crafts, visiting and feeding the animals, pony rides, and more; as well as a day at the Magic Mountain water park for older campers.

Keeper Camp is a program for youth ages 14-17 years which is designed to teach participants about the world of zookeeping and then experience it through hands on, real life zookeeper work. Up to five campers can register per week!
