Day Camps

The Town of Canmore is pleased to provide quality day camps for children and youth in our community.

Our commitment is to ensure your child has a safe, rewarding and memorable day camp experience. Through carefully planned itineraries, we will provide meaningful and age-appropriate activities that take into consideration Canmore and our local resources.

OUR STAFF

Our day camp leaders know how to create fun in an environment that is safe, and fosters learning and growth! We understand the importance of building positive relationships between staff and participants. Each day camp leader has an RCMP Security Clearance, current first aid certification and takes part in pre-camp training sessions.
