We have the best camp staff

We build your child's best memories

We organize and plan our programs all year to ensure the week your child spends with us is unforgettable. Just ask any of our campers or watch our camp videos.


Fun is our motto

One of Capital Camps' chief objectives is fun, so we ensure that both our counsellors and atmosphere embody this. This fun environment is apparent when campers don't want to leave at the end of the day! Good luck tearing them away!

We are Ontario Camps Accredited

We are the only day camp in Ottawa accredited by the Ontario Camps Association. This means we have passed all 500 individual safety standards set by the OCA. 


Peace of mind

Due to our highly qualified staff, you can leave our camp in the morning knowing that you can count on the highly trained teachers and coaches to take care of and work with your child. The 8:1  counsellors to camper ratio is a game changer!


Self-esteem booster

We work closely with your child to develop their soft and hard skills.  We teach them to set realistic, achievable goals. Nothing raises a child’s confidence more than knowing they have improved. 


Free extras

We offer many great free extras to both campers and parents! Campers get a camp T-shirt, an action shot picture and an award certificate. Parents benefit from the free extras too! We offer daily before and after care.
