Why Capital Camps?
We will deliver the best day camp experience that you can find in Ottawa through our awesome staff and fun activities!
We are camp professionals
Capital Camps Owner/Director Aaron Shaughnessy has been running summer camps for 27 years and Capital Camps for 20 years!
We have the best camp staff
Capital Camps staff are highly qualified to work with your child. We have 6 times more teachers working for us than any other camp in Ottawa. All of our program directors are teachers, not to mention that 75% of our staff returns to camp year after year!
Over the past 18 years we have had more than 14,500 happy campers come through our doors. How do we know they are happy? Over 85% return every summer!
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!
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.
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.
Capital Camps has been a summer staple for many kids and parents in the Orleans area for the past 20 years. Just ask any camper or parent who has had the Capital Camps experience!
