Montreal March Break Camps 2019
This is the first year in forever that I can remember not having to search for march break camps for my kids. This is the year we get to escape to a hot, sandy beach.
It’ll be our first tropical vacation as a family of five and our first all-inclusive since 2013. I can’t wait. But I’m not trying to make anyone envious. I know all too well the guilt that goes along with sending my kids off to camp while they’re supposed to be on spring break. The reality for many people, like myself in previous years, is that we have to work. Luckily, there are so many great Montreal march break camps that our kids are sure to be entertained for the week.
Last year I rounded up some of my favourites here that are still running in 2019 but I’ve also discovered some new programs worth checking out this year:
Jabberwocky Studio Art Zoo
If you don’t know this NDG indoor play space, read more about it here. The studio is hosting its first edition of spring break camp with three day ($175) and five day ($285) options. The camp is appropriate for kids ages 5-8 and will consist of exploring different animals and their habitats through art. The prices include snacks, lunch and taxes.
Peek a Boo Art/Robotics Camp
This art studio for kids on Decarie is hosting a one week camp. Daily programming includes a robotics activity and art project in the morning followed by outdoor play and nearby trips in the afternoon (ie. local library). The camp is for kids ages 4-12 and costs $30/half day and $50/full day.
CEPSUM March Break Camps
I never heard of CEPSUM until a group of NDG parents expressed their approval of this march break camp. Run by and located at Université de Montreal, kids at this camp will have access to many different facilities including a swimming pool, gymnasium, trampolines and more. The camp is divided into different age groups (5-14) and the cost is $54 per day.
Healthy Living Day Camp by Guided Fitness
My kids jump at the opportunity to get into a gym so I know this Montreal West camp would be right up their alley. Children will learn why it is so important to move throughout the day, and what benefits exercise offers them. They will participate in a range of activities from karate to discussing peer pressure to learning how to read nutritional labels. The camp is for kids ages 6-13 and costs $175 for the week.
Creative Video March Break Camp
Located at Concordia’s Loyola campus, campers get to bring their stories to life by creating and starring in their own short movies, which are later presented on the big screen at the Creative Video Film Festival! This camp is a truly creative experience for kids between the ages of 6 and 13 and costs $295 for the week.
