Dovercourt Day Camps

Have a look at the video about Dovercourt DayCamps produced by our own Dovercourt Rogers TV camp

Dovercourt DayCamps

Dovercourt offers one of the largest Summer Day Camp programs in Ottawa, with so much variety and lots to choose from. Each year we add new activities, events and camps to stay up to date with current trends and to keep things exciting. We also offer day camps during the Christmas holiday and March Break.

Our hiring and internal development program ensures we have staff members who you can trust and who serve as positive role models and play leaders for your child. All of our staff and volunteers are certiied in Standard First Aid & CPR and High Five: Principles of Healthy Child Development and have completed a police record check. Daily activities are planned and reviewed in advance by senior programming staff and management so you can expect a well-balanced and age-appropriate schedule full of fun and skill-developing activities.

We are excited to partner with Funlanguages Canada again this year to host a number of young students from Spain. They arrive on Canada Day and spend one month in the community learning about life in Canada. Many of them participate in our Leader-In-Training and Counselor-In-Training programs and you may see some of them volunteering in camp programs. Funlanguages is currently looking for home stay families who live close to Dovercourt and those with summer campers, LITs or CITs or camp staff would be a bonus. Families are offered a reimbursement of $800. See the poster for more details

Our Commitment to Children

Mabel's Labels

At the end of summer, there is always a pile of campers belongings left at camp. This is an expensive waste for our campers (and their parents!) As a way to target the problem of lost belongings and a large lost and found closet, we are encouraging our campers to label all belongings.

We have partnered with Mabel's Labels, a company with all types of labels that are colourful, indestructable and fun! With a special 'Camp Pack' available and also a larger “Big Combo”, your camper can label absolutely everything! 

Go to www.dovercourt.mabelslabels.com and then place your order!

We look forward to sending campers home with ALL their belongings!
