Kanata Montessori School offers dynamic camp programming for children aged 3 – 12 years during March Break and throughout the summer. Both camps are available to the public as well as our own students. Summer and March Break camps offer many activities including field trips, swimming, games, crafts, songs, stories, baking, weekly themes, special events and visitors. We have a large playground, gymnasium, soccer field and forested area to enjoy.
We pride ourselves on our diverse programming which enables the children to experience much of what the Ottawa region has to offer. A detailed trip and event schedule is available in advance to help you select the days to attend. Elementary camp (for ages 6-9) is designed with adventure in mind. Most days are spent off-site participating in fun and engaging activities. We also offer a Senior Elementary camp (for ages 9-12) for two weeks of the summer, please see our website for the dates. The Casa Summer Camp (for ages 3-5) offers two field trips per week plus an afternoon outing to a city splash pad or wading pool.
Q) Can I register for some camp days now and add additional days later or register for additional days last minute?
A) Yes you may register for additional days at a later date and last minute as long as there are spaces available. Simply log in to your account and select the additional days. If you would like to register in person or for the current day you will need to call the camp coordinator directly.
Q) Can I change camp days that I have already registered for?
A) Yes you may change or switch registered dates without penalty at the coordinator’s discretion. Changes may only be done with a minimum of 24 hours notice and must be done in person or over the phone. Once you have paid for your registrations online, the system will not allow changes - they must be done in person or by phone.
Q) What is your staff to child ratio during camp?
A) For the Casa camps, we use a 1:8 ratio when we are on site and we use a 1:5 ratio for field trips. This ratio does not include any volunteers or junior counselors – any volunteers are extra helpers and are not included in the ratio. The Elementary camp uses a 1:10 ratio.
Q) When I register online, do I have to use PayPal?
A) No, you will have the option when you are finished registering to pay online or to reserve a space for your child and “Print Payment Page”. Please print this page and send it with your payment to the school. Payment by cash or cheque must then be made within 5 days of your online registration. Payments may be brought to the school during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) before camp begins or given directly to the camp coordinator after this date.
Q) Who do I contact to make changes to my camp registration?
A) Please contact the camp coordinator directly to make any changes:
