All t-shirts hats will be labelled with your child's name and they will be yours to keep at the end of the child’s stay at Huron Superfriends summer camp.
We spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer, so children are
required to bring a hat every day.
All SCHOOL AGE children will be participating in swimming lessons, every Tuesday and Friday morning. The swimming lessons are held at St. Alban's Boys and Girls Club, located on Palmerston Avenue. Children and camp staff will walk to St. Alban's, where we will enjoy swimming again this summer.

During the day the children will have 2 to 3 free choice play times. Unlike other camps we provide times for the children to choose their activities: play board games with friends, dodgeball, 4-square, drawing, playing tag, read a book on the bean bags, legos, computer games. Moments to relax, make new friends, and enjoy their summertime!
