Join us as we kick back to the basics of good ol’ summer time fun. Spend more time outdoors, taking in the fresh air, warm temperatures and sunny skies!
Toddler – School-Age (2 to 12 years)
Summer camp begins in June
11-week programming, flexible enrolment
Our highly anticipated summer camp is now open for enrolment!
Designed to give families the flexibility to enrol for up to a full 11-week summer season, our program encompasses an exciting array of visual arts, math & science, sports, music and dance activities for school-age children to learn and grow.
Best of all, every week we celebrate our learnings together with a summer-themed event or excursion that is sure to bring a smile from ear to ear!
A summer to remember for everyone
We integrate summer programming into our regular child care programs during the summer months. If your child is enrolled in a child care program, they will also enjoy the summer experience at Smart Kids.
Benefits for Children
- Spend time enjoying the outdoors
- Reduce screen time
- Explore and discover new interests
- Build friendships and share experiences with peers
- Discover nature and learn to respect our planet
- Learn about summer harvest and enjoy tasty treats
- Stay active and have fun!
We infuse nature awareness with enriching learning experiences to our summer programming.
Children will participate in age-appropriate group activities and also enjoy individual play to explore their favourite interests at their own pace.
Outdoor and Nature Play
Summer is a great time for children to connect with nature. Children will have plenty of opportunities to ignite their creativity and imagination as they enjoy adventures outdoors and discover and explore their own neighbourhood.
Savour Earth’s Goodness
Fresh watermelon, snow cones, fruit pops and many other healthy tasty treats to savour. Our educators will create learning experiences with seasonal produce to keep children cool, hydrated and full of energy.
Move & Groove in the Sunshine
Soak up that vitamin D! We provide a variety of physical activities that pique each child’s individual interests and progress. Whether it’s participating in sports, creative arts, science experiments, or learning to fly a kite, it’s a time to be active and take it outside!
Connect with Community
Educators are there alongside the children as they explore and share stories about their community. Engaging in acts of kindness and generosity provide opportunities for children to give back and build healthy habits at a young age.
Celebration and summer go hand in hand! We end each week with a fun-filled summer event, guaranteed to bring joy, laughter and lifelong memories.
2022 Celebration Line-up
Rain or shine, we celebrate each week!
Events may be modified if conditions require us to be indoors.
Summer Camp for school-age children will also participate in weekly off-site excursions.
For our first week of celebration, we kick off our summer series with an appreciation for summer harvest. Children will enjoy a picnic outdoors (at a local park if available), followed by nostalgic summer games and sing-a-longs.
Originating from our San Marcos location, KiddieChella is a musical celebration for the minors! We love a good festival filled with bubbles, glow sticks, flower crowns and tunes that encourage children to sing, dance and express themselves freely.
Around the World
We honor culture and diversity around the world with a day of festivities that include savoury tastings, dancing and cultural celebrations.
Let’s hula! A day of island vibes filled with love, ohana and all things tropical. We celebrate with a Hawaiian luau that is sure to include water activities, hibiscus florals and tasty treats. Shaka!
Concert Under the Sun
Children will learn about the sounds of summer and have an opportunity to follow along with the beats of popular tunes. Musical performances on a big screen give way to skipping that extra beat on the way home from school.
Let the Games Begin
Ready to get moving? From freeze tag to relay races, our exciting lineup of classic children’s games are always a hit for all ages, encouraging healthy competition, self-confidence and good sportsmanship.
Building sand castles, tossing beach balls and water play are what make beachy dreams come true. This summer-themed event is a classic favorite amongst all our children throughout the years.
Glamping in the City
Camp adventures city style! Camping always brings back memories of sitting in a circle toasting marshmallows and making smores. Children will enjoy singing songs and telling stories as they gather together around the ‘campfire’.
Up, Up and Away
Time to look up! How often do we marvel at the sights above us? Children dress up in shades of blue and float like the clouds as they enjoy playful activities outdoors including kite flying, bubbles and paper airplanes.
Time to get in our bathing suits and cool off! Our play areas are set-up with multiple water play areas. Sprinklers, inflatables and water toys will provide children plenty of wet and wild experiences.
As a final adieu to summer, children will wrap the summer season with a carnival in our very own play yard. We celebrate friendship and summer memories enjoying carnival games, snacks and fruity drinks.
“Summertime is always the best of what might be.”
