Summer Day Camps

SUMMER CAMPS 2021

Due to our reality with COVID-19, Mid-Sun Summer Day Camps will be going on a new adventure with weekly themed camps boasting extra crafts, games, and community activities. Each week, campers will be immersed in experiences that embody space, nature, the ocean, sports, the local and global community, science, and superheroes. Crafts, games, and activities will connect to our themes and enrich campers’ interests in these themed areas. Of course, Mid-Sun Summer Day Camps would not be the same without our camp favorites such as “Snakes in the Grass” and “tie-dye headbands”, so each week will be a blend of themed activities and the staples that make Summer Day Camps special. Please explore the weekly themes below and get excited for the best summer yet!

Our camp coordinators, Gabriel and Kendra, are now in the building and can be reached via phone at (403) 254-8058 Ext. 225 from 9:00am-1:00pm Monday to Friday and via email at daycamps@midsun.org, 9:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday. The new and updated 2021 Camp Guide can be found and downloaded below. We can’t wait to get the fun started!

MEET OUR NEW DAY CAMP COORDINATORS!

Please help us welcome our new Day Camp Coordinators, Gabe (left) and Kendra (right) – or as our campers might know them as, Wallaby and Nemo!  Both have been working with Mid-Sun’s Day Camps for 3+ years as Junior, then Senior Leaders.  They are excited to bring new ideas to the team to make every week even more fun and special for our campers.  Kendra is a familiar face for most as she works in our Out of School Care program too!  Gabe is currently completing his education degree and Kendra is just finishing up her education degree practicum placement!  Future teachers with a passion for working with children – how lucky are we at Mid-Sun!

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Registration Day: Thursday, April 1 – 7:00AM ONLINE ONLY

We are strongly encouraging online registration as it is quick, easy, and safe for our customers.  If you cannot pay online with a credit card, please email Vanessa, our Facility Coordinator (bookings@midsun.org), so we can try to make alternate arrangements for you.  Camp policies and frequently asked questions can be found below.

During our shutdown, we transitioned to a brand-new recreation registration system!  If you have registered in our programs in the past, you will already have an account with us. Please email bookings@midsun.org to request your new login name and password. If you are an Out of School Care parent, you do not have to create a new account as you’ve most likely already gained access to your online account within the last few weeks.

We suggest you log into your online account as soon as possible.  With new technology, comes new challenges.  We want to ensure your accounts are ready to go for registration day.  If you receive any kind of error message, please reach out to Vanessa immediately so we can resolve your account issues prior to April 1.
