Summer Camps

Camp is an exciting time for a child! A time for fun, friendships, special activities and songs. At Antigonish County Recreation Day Camps, all children are treated with respect, allowed to be who they are, engaged to discover new strengths and skills and encouraged to think about the local and broader world around them.

Your child’s safety and well being are important to us. Antigonish County Recreation’s core values of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility and inclusiveness will guide every aspect of our programming and our interaction with staff, parents and children. We have planned a great summer experience for your child(ren)–get ready for some fun!

 

Information on our 2022 Summer Camps will be posted when finalized.
