We’re excited for another summer at OSCA! Last year will be hard to top, but we’ve been planning lots of fun adventures and activities for you in 2019! We offer weekly themed camps for our little ones such as Everything But the Kitchen Sink for 4-5 year olds and CampQuest for 6-7 year olds. We also offer more specialized camps for campers up to 14 years of age (e.g., Junior Engineering for ages 9-12). We try to make sure there’s a little something for everyone.
Here are some of our OSCA Favourites:
Everything But the Kitchen Sink, CampQuest, Paul Armstrong’s Basketball Camp, Youth Camping Camp at Lac Philippe, H2O, Out & About, Ukulele, Young Explorers, What’s Cookin’, Junior Camping Camp, Gamers, Bike Camp, Dance In The City, Kids Clay, Kinderclay, and Youth Pottery
Here are some of our amazing new camps:
Junior Life In Balance, H2O2, Youth Bake Boss, Steam Aviation’s Junior Island Escape, 3D Game Programmer Jr. with FutureKids, and Chess Camp with the Chess’N Math Association.
We’re going to make the summer of 2019 a fantastic experience for you. We can't wait to meet all of our awesome campers! If you have not been to OSCA camps before, feel free to come visit us or email us if you have any questions. We are always willing to help our campers feel safe and comfortable so their OSCA experience is a positive and fun one.
