Outstanding variety & a central location

Dovercourt offers one of the largest 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 certified 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.


As a High Five® accredited organization, Dovercourt is committed to developing and delivering programs that are child-centred and reflect our values of respect, diversity and inclusion. All of our program staff are trained and certified in High Five: Healthy Child Development and our programs are evaluated regularly to ensure a high standard of quality. To learn more visit
