Day Camps

The Town of New Tecumseth provides day camp for children aged 5-11 years.

Our vision within Recreation programs is to be a leader and valued partner in building a healthy community.  All day camps are designed to build campers imagination, curiosity, creativity, self-esteem, and confidence.

Camp is such a fun and exciting time. To make the most of your child's camp experience, we have created a Summer Camp Welcome Package  to help best prepare for camp this season. Please look through the package as it will help ease you through the process and answer some common questions.
