Summer Camps at Dal

2020 SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION WILL OPEN FEB 10!

Dalhousie day camps provide parents with the opportunity to choose from a variety of sport and recreational summer camp options, all designed to educate, challenge, and inspire children ages 5-17. Our camps feature low instructor-to-student ratios and foster skill development and recreational development, while teaching the importance of cooperation, teamwork and fair play.  

A Typical Day at Camp

  • Drop off begins at 8:15am.
  • Camp begins at 9:00am. Mornings may include games, sport-specific skill development, swimming, and other physical activities. Activities may take place in specific camp locations or in other campus locations.
  • Lunch starts around 12:00pm and is included in most on-campus camps. Lunch takes place in one of Dalhousie University's Residence dinning halls to which campers will walk with camp staff.
  • Afternoon activities will include games, sport-specific skill development, free swim, and other activities. Activities may take place in specific camp location or other parts of campus.
  • Pick-up begins at 4:15pm and continues until 5:00pm.
  • NEW THIS YEAR! Early drop off and late pick-up are available, however pre-registration is required and additional fees apply.
  • Camp-specific itineraries are emailed to participants the week before camp begins.
