The Day Camp experience at the Boys and Girls Club is hard to beat!
The Boys and Girls Club of Niagara offers fun and exciting day camps during the Winter Holiday, March Break week, and Summer Holiday. Activities include a variety of arts, crafts, indoor and outdoor recreational sports, cooperative games, out trips, and guest speakers with a focus on developing confidence, resiliency, social skills, physical literacy, and friendship building (please note: some activities may not be available due to COVID-19/public health restrictions).
Our camp leaders are experienced and trained in education, child and youth care, and recreation. All of our staff have first aid and CPR training and have completed criminal record checks. Staff-to-child ratios are set to the Ministry’s recommendations to provide high-quality supervision and greater individual attention to each child.
