7 Sensational Day Camps for Kids

Posted by Treetops on Thursday, 19 June 2014 in Local Amenities


The school year is wrapping up quickly – it’s time to start thinking about summer holidays for the little ones. If you’re thinking about summer camps, we’ve got some great options for you! The Nottawasaga Resort, located next door to Treetops, is offering their weeklong Summer Sensations Day and Golf Camps, which are loaded with a variety of incredible activities for children 6-12 years old.  Your little one can choose from sports, games, ice-skating, nature hikes and more! Check out the full camp schedule here.

We wanted to give you more insight into Summer Sensations Day Camps, so we interviewed Chantelle Keating, the Recreation, Team Building and Programs Manager at the Nottawasaga Resort to get the inside scoop.

What types of camps will you be coordinating and what can you tell us about them?

We’re excited to be offering camp themes that focus on experiential and traditional experiences and games. We pride ourselves on providing quality activities for kids aged 6 – 12 that are safe and relevant to what the new buzz of the year is!  By integrating ideas from movies like Hunger Games and Brave, we are able introducing activities such as archery, slingshot, wilderness survival and more that are popular with today’s youth!  Holidays in the summer will offer everything from Halloween, Easter and you guessed it, another Christmas…two in one year! Five days of camping will offer great activities such as geocaching, singing campfire songs, dodgeball and all kinds of campfire games – all without the mosquitos!  Summer Olympics introduces opening and closing ceremonies, a 6-foot soccer ball and team spirit! Our Little Explorers camp week is really popular with scavenger hunts, Amazing Race and nature hikes too.   That’s just to name a few of our themes!  We also offer full and half-day golf camps, which feature time with a CPGA Golf Pro, for both beginner and intermediate golfers that the budding pro in your home is sure to love.

Which camp program is your favourite and why? 

There’s too many great options to just choose one!  The camp line-up this year is  spectacular and you can’t go wrong by choosing any of our seven themes. Even better, join us for the entire summer and give your kids a lifetime of memories!  We are very excited to showcase all the themes and a line-up of amazing activities this year!

Why would you recommend that Treetops homeowners participate in Summer Sensations day camps?

Not only are our camps a fantastic way to keep your kids entertained (so close to home), it’s also  a great opportunity for homeowners to meet new long time friends!  We’re very fortunate to be surrounded by such an amazing community of wonderful members and campers that return year after year.  Also if Treetops families become a member at the Sports & Leisure Dome, they will receive discounts for camp and swim lesson enrolment!

What do you think the kids look forward to the most about Summer Sensations day camps? 

Making new friends, a sense of independence, participating in new experiences through organized and structure programming and daily swimming in our nice warm indoor pool featuring our 100-foot waterslide! 

Sounds like another exciting summer season at the Nottawasaga Resort!  Summer Sensations Day Camps and Golf Camps start on July 7th, so make sure to register soon! Feel free to let us know which camp you’ve chosen by reaching out to us on the Treetops Facebook page. We love hearing from you! 

As a reminder the Presentation Centre will be closed on Tuesday July 1 for Canada Day and will reopen on Wednesday July 2.  Have a safe and happy Canada Day!
