Transitions Day Camps

Transitions is a fun and action packed summer day camp program that offers children a chance to gain the “extra” tools they need to be independent and responsible. The program is organized into two age categories.

City of Ottawa Subsidies are available

  • Junior Site – 5 to 7 years old
  • Senior Site – 8 to 12 years old

The hallmark of Transitions is that the children have ownership of the program. Under the guidance of qualified counselors, each group receives a small weekly allowance and bus tickets for outings they organize and plan themselves. They make their own rules, plan their time, and manage all aspects of the program. In Transitions, children are encouraged to be the “Boss”. The end result is a sense of empowerment, faith in their abilities, and a ton of recreational fun.The program operates in numerous communities across the City of Ottawa. All of our counselors are screened and have High Five and First Aid Training.Transitions is a small group program with 8 children per group. All groups are supervised by a mature Counselor and an Assistant Counselor. Emphasis is on organizing off-site activities.

In Transitions, your child can learn:

  • to develop self-confidence, independence, and responsibility
  • to develop healthy co-operative social and working relationships with other children and adults
  • time and money management
  • to make decisions, plan, and organize all aspects of desired activities
  • to explore and utilize the resources within the Ottawa area and to be healthy and contributing members of the
    community
