2020 Summer Camps: Application Deadlines and Information

February 20, 2020

Kids and counsellors enjoying JMCC summer camps

Even though there is still a chill in the air, summer vacation is just around the corner and it is important to start thinking about summer programming for your children and youth. We have compiled a list of important dates and information on summer camps for children and youth of varying abilities.

JMCC Summer Camp
The summer camp at the John McGivney Children’s Centre (JMCC) is for clients of the Centre who present with a physical disability and who are unable to attend community programs due to their high physical and medical needs.

Below are the tentative dates that the camp will run this summer (subject to our successful funding application, for which we will not receive confirmation until mid-May, unfortunately). We are hoping to have applications for this camp out earlier this year to allow parents to plan their summer schedules earlier.

Tentative 2020 Camp Dates 

Camp 1 July 6 - July 16
Camp 2 * July 20 - July 30
Camp 3 August 4 - August 13
* Camp 2 will have nursing for campers that require tube feeding.
