City of Ottawa - Summer Programming

Make a Splash this Summer!

Great Leaders Make the Difference in Your City's Summer Camps!

Our leaders are multi-talented and well trained, so parents can have confidence that their camper will have a rewarding experience.  Our leaders have often been campers themselves and bring their unique expertise to the programs. Happy parents report: 'My son had another amazing year and thoroughly enjoyed his experience. He met friends, learned new ideas and skills, experienced a variety of activities and just plain old had a fun time.'

Get Water Wise – Save Lives

As temperatures rise, we look forward to our favourite summer activity, swimming. Whether it's in the pool, at the beach or cottage, or getting wet at the local wading pool, we think about the fun, but not always the safety. From June to September, at least one person will drown every two weeks within Canada. The Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition is committed to raising public awareness of water safety with drowning prevention tips for parents and caregivers. Remember, adult supervision is essential no matter how well your child swims. Now is a good time to learn to swim. We have swimming lessons for all ages.

From Carp to Cumberland, over 80,000 visitors will explore some of the city's most interesting places, and you're invited! If you're interested in the downtown sites, take a ride in the Free Ottawa Citizen Doors Open Ottawa shuttle bus.
