Day Camps (Ages 4 to 12)

Urban Summer Day Camp

Pine’s summer day camps are all about getting kids outside, connecting with nature and having fun. Campers have the chance to explore city parks, play nature games, learn new wilderness and naturalist skills, and connect with their peers.

Registration for our 2021 Summer Day Camps will open on Wednesday, April 14th at 12:00pm (noon)! You can find more registration details below.

Our current camp plans are based on last year’s Covid-19 day camp guidelines, with the understanding that we may need to adapt plans in response to evolving public health guidelines.* These plans include comprehensive Covid-19 safety policies such as daily screenings, physical distancing, masking, small group sizes, and enhanced hygiene and sanitation. Please review this Covid-19 Information document for further details.

Looking for an option for teens? Check out our Teen Urban Summer Program for teens ages 13-15.

*Pine camps will adhere to provincial and municipal public health guidelines as they continue to evolve. We’re continuing to closely monitor for updates and we’re dedicated to communicating any changes to families as quickly as possible. Our Summer Camps Covid-19 webpage will be updated regularly and registered families will be emailed directly.

Summer 2021 Details:
Session Options (Select One):

This is a summer camp lasting one week with daily sessions.

For more information about before and after care, please see our Summer Camp Covid-19 Webpage.

Registering by age: To ensure kids of all ages are able to join us, we’ll be registering campers by age ranges: 4-6yo, 7-9yo, 10-12yo. However, individual camp groups will be created closer to the camp’s start date and will allow for mixing between these age ranges. As always, we will do our best to accommodate friend requests, but we cannot make guarantees.

***Two Week Limit Per Participant***: To ensure access to as many children as possible, we restrict campers to TWO WEEKS of camp.

We update program availability about once a week, but things can change fast! To double check if spots are available in your camp of interest, we recommend heading over to our registration site (click "Register" below). If a camp is full, we strongly encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see quite a bit of movement on our waitlists before camps begin and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.

Bursaries are available through our Bursary Fund.

A $100 deposit is required upon registration. The balance is collected following acceptance. No payment plans will be available through the registration system. If payment in full creates financial hardship for your family, please reach out to our team at info@pineproject.org to discuss a custom payment plan. 

We recognize that navigating this year’s many unknowns is difficult for families. Our cancellation policy is designed to provide flexibility in the coming months – families will receive a full refund, minus a $50 administration fee, for any cancellation made 28 days or more before the start of camp. Please review our full cancellation policy carefully before registering.

Registration for Summer 2021:

We’ll be accepting applications to register for Summer 2021 starting on Wednesday, April 14th at 12:00pm (noon)! To view availability and apply to register after that date, click the Registration button below and complete an application.

*We follow an application to register process – families apply to register a camper and after brief review, we’ll send you an email to confirm your acceptance or follow up with some additional questions.

*Please note: We offer pre-registration to returning campers before this public registration date. We received an unprecedented amount of interest from returning campers this year, and many camps are already full. However, we encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see some turnover before and during camp, and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.
