Summer Camp 2021 Schedule
For 10 years, Dreams Discovery Centre has been offering exciting camp programming to our community. Each year, we expand our ability to offer our campers a broad range of activities to choose from and a truly unique and adventurous camp experience.
This summer, we will be offering:
lots of fitness and sports,
lots of STEAM activities,
lots of games and puzzles,
lots of exciting workshops,
lots of fun and adventure,
plenty of great food,
and an exceptional team of caring teachers and staff.
Each themed week will have campers exploring a range of creative activities. While weaving the theme into our daily routine, a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) project will highlight the week and provide students with an exciting learning experience. STEAM activities will be adjusted for each age group and build up to an end of week challenge. In addition to the theme of the week, our team will underline key values that have defined our centre, such as growth mindset, fitness, and responsibility.
We will continue to divide our campers into 3 separate groups. We will be following safety protocols as recommended by the ministry of health and in accordance with our own policies. As a result of various restrictions to public places and facilities, we have not scheduled any trip destinations.

- Sample Daily Schedule
This sample schedule offers a glimpse into the first day of camp. Themed activities will take up different amounts of the daily schedule depending on the day of the week. Our goal is to provide our campers with a balance of STEAM activities and plenty of other activities. We specialize in motivating and exciting our campers to get involved, so if a camper is showing reservations about an activity, we will not force him/her to participate. We will offer the camper options and try to win him/her over through encouragement. Our centre has been called a “factory of imagination and creativity” and that applies to our space and our approach.
For anyone new to our program, we invite you to try us out and see for yourself why so many kids love it here. Check out our Facebook Page to view galleries from past summer camps.
