Welcome to a world of imagination and

wonder! Theme camps bring stories and

characters to life with experienced, talented

and animated staff who are dedicated to

providing a week of fun and adventure for

all. Weekly themes are further enhanced

with games, crafts, special events, visits

from extraordinary guests and out-trips to

exciting locations. Most days also include a

swim time in the indoor pool. Many theme

camp activities take place at off-site

locations near Dovercourt, including local

schools and parks, but each day starts and

ends at Dovercourt.

*Kindergarten age groups (4-5yr olds)

remain on-site at Dovercourt.


Youth Zone programs are designed

specifically with the need of 10-12yr olds in

mind. Many have outgrown

traditional day camps, but still want the

excitement and fun that only camp

provides. With close attention paid to

what our more experienced campers want

the most, these programs are designed to

ensure a full week of activity

with a focus on creating friendships and

trying new things together. Many camp

activities take place at off-site

locations including day-trips, but drop off

and pick up is always at Dovercourt.


Specialty camps offer campers the opportunity

to try something new and develop their

talents in a fun and friendly environment. At

least half the day is spent on the specialty

and the rest of the day is balanced with

other creative camp activities including

outdoor play, crafts and swimming. Many

camp activities take place at off-site

locations near Dovercourt, but drop off and

pick up is always at Dovercourt.



The belief that each and every child has an

equal right to a happy camp experience is at

the heart of our programming. To bring this

belief into practice, we rely strongly on the

partnership of parents. Please take the time

to make us aware of any medical,

behavioural, or cognitive differences

(diagnosed or undiagnosed) your child may

have at the time of registration. This might

include social anxieties, communication

barriers, the tendency to run or wander

away from the group, or simply requiring

additional “body breaks” or a little bit of

extra attention. Making us aware early on

will help our Inclusion Team to arrange for

any additional supports in order to ensure

that each child has the best possible

experience in camp.

For questions or to discuss your child’s

participation in camp, or arrange a meeting

with our Inclusion staff, please contact us at

sign in with your Camp Director beginning
