Summer Day Camp

Paradise Summer Day Camp is a fun and enjoyable way for children to spend summer. Town Summer Camps are held at the Rotary Paradise Youth and Community Centre (RPYCC) in the Paradise Double Ice Complex and Paradise Elementary School. 

The 2019 program runs from July 2 to August 24, and is offered to families for the entire summer, or on a weekly basis.

This summer we have organized activities that are fun, social and educational. Each camp will have different outings every week including a swimming day and planned theme days, with games, crafts, presentations and more. The Camps include:

  • Camp Caboodle: children attending Grades 1 or 2 in September
  • Camp Wahoo: children attending Grades 3 or 4 in September
  • Camp Excursion: children attending Grades 5, 6 or 7 in September
