Calgary's Child Parent's Choice Award for Best Children's Camp!

Summer is just around the corner, and if you're a parent in Calgary, you're probably already thinking about how to keep your kids entertained and engaged during those long, sunny days. Well, look no further than Summit Summer, the sister program to the award-winning Summit Kids program, which has recently won the coveted Parent's Choice Award for Best Children's Camp in Calgary!

A Summer of Unforgettable Fun

As a parent myself, I know how important it is to find a summer camp that not only keeps my kids busy but also provides them with a safe, nurturing environment where they can learn, grow, and make lasting memories. That's exactly what Summit Summer promises to deliver.

From the moment I dropped my kids off on the first day, I could tell they were in for a treat. The enthusiastic staff greeted them with warm smiles and infectious energy, instantly putting them at ease. And as the day unfolded, I could see the excitement on their faces as they participated in a whirlwind of activities, from arts and crafts to sports and outdoor adventures.

One of the things that really stood out to me was the camp's emphasis on fostering a sense of community and friendship among the campers. My kids came home each day buzzing with stories about the new friends they'd made and the hilarious antics they'd gotten up to. It was heartwarming to see them so engaged and happy, and I knew they were creating memories that would last a lifetime.

A Well-Rounded Experience

But Summit Summer isn't just about fun and games – it's also about learning and personal growth. The camp's diverse range of activities ensures that every child has the opportunity to explore their interests and discover new passions. Whether it's conducting science experiments, tackling DIY projects, or participating in team-building exercises, there's something for everyone.

I was particularly impressed by the camp's focus on outdoor activities and environmental education. In a world where kids are increasingly glued to screens, it's refreshing to see a program that encourages them to disconnect and appreciate the great outdoors. My kids came home with a newfound appreciation for nature and a desire to protect the environment – a valuable lesson that will serve them well in the years to come.

A Safe and Nurturing Environment

Of course, as a parent, safety is always a top priority. That's why I was relieved to learn that Summit Summer takes a comprehensive approach to ensuring the well-being of its campers. From stringent background checks on staff to strict safety protocols during activities, no stone is left unturned.

But beyond just physical safety, Summit Summer also prioritizes emotional and social well-being. The staff is trained to create an inclusive and supportive environment where every child feels valued and respected. This nurturing atmosphere allows kids to step out of their comfort zones, try new things, and develop confidence and resilience – skills that will serve them well in all aspects of life.

Making Child Care Accessible

One of the things that truly sets Summit Summer apart is its commitment to making high-quality childcare accessible to families from all economic backgrounds. Thanks to the "Revised Affordability Grant" and subsidy program, many parents in Calgary are now able to enroll their children in Summit Summer at a significantly reduced cost. This groundbreaking initiative is a game-changer for families who might have previously been priced out of such enriching summer experiences. By removing financial barriers, Summit Summer is ensuring that every child has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive, regardless of their family's circumstances. It's a powerful testament to the program's values of inclusivity and diversity, and a shining example of how Child Care should be a right, not a privilege. As a parent, it's incredibly reassuring to know that my children have access to such a high-quality program without breaking the bank.

The Verdict

As the summer draws to a close, I can't help but feel grateful for the incredible experience my kids had at Summit Summer. They've come home tired but happy, with a renewed zest for life and a treasure trove of memories that will stay with them forever.

If you're a Calgary parent looking for a top-notch summer camp experience for your kids, I can't recommend Summit Summer highly enough. With its winning combination of fun, learning, and personal growth, it's no wonder it's been awarded the Parent's Choice Award for Best Children's Camp. Trust me, your kids will thank you for it!
