The highlight of my summers growing up would be that one week I’d spend over at camp on the Sunshine Coast. It was just seven days out of ninety but the experience will be with me always. While there are still full-on summer camp adventures available throughout the province, the next best thing (close to home) is a day camp program.
I saw a tweet this morning from @TroutLakeCC about their day camp programs so it has inspired me to put together the following list:
