Why choose a monthly membership?
As a licensed summer camp Summit Summer is able to accept Child Care Subsidy and Affordability Grant to supplement payments. With these government supports, rates are drastically reduced. Got 2 kids or more? We also offer an extra 10% discount for additional siblings enrolled. Even if you have long weekends away and extra vacation weeks planned the cost is so low that you can do it all and still have the comfort of reliable childcare all summer long.
At Summit Summer, your child will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities such as sports, arts and crafts, and educational games. Our amazing staff also take the time to find out what your kids are into and adjust activities to ensure that their personal interests are part of the fun!
Our programming will include swimming, outings, and field trips! Our certified professional staff are trained to provide a safe and supportive environment for children to grow and learn. Your child will develop important life skills such as independence, teamwork, and problem-solving, which will help them succeed in school and later in life.
No suprise that swimming is one of our most popular activities and is perfect for children who love to be in the water. Your child will have the opportunity to improve their swimming skills and gain confidence in the water. For those younger kiddos we’ll be visiting the splash park regularly to cool off and have fun in the sun.
Our outings and field trips will provide your child with the opportunity to explore and learn about the world around them. We have carefully selected destinations that are both educational and fun, such as local interest spots, nature reserves, and more. Your child will have the chance to experience different situations and environments, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
At Summit Summer, kids will also have the opportunity to socialize with peers and make new friends. Our camp provides a welcoming and inclusive environment that fosters positive social interactions and personal growth. Our experienced staff are trained to provide support and guidance to help children develop important social skills such as communication and empathy.
Our mission at Summit Kids is to make a better world, one child at a time.
How does Summit achieve this?
Building on how children think, learn and behave and supporting them to develop friendships that foster a sense of connection, security, and build self-confidence.
