Posted on January 16, 2015 by Erin McLaughlin

http---www.ourkids.net-campexpo-media-ourkids-campexpo-300x250What does camp mean to you? Maybe it’s a week of fun in the sun, arts and crafts, and canoeing. Perhaps it’s a couple weeks of dipping toes in the water, finding a place at the chow table, feeling confident about mastering a new activity, and endless campfire stories and giggles.

To your child, a camp experience is all of that and more. At camp, your child is able to play and learn, take chances and try something new, and build friendships that last a lifetime. It’s an opportunity to foster important life skills such as problem solving, leadership and self-confidence. Most importantly, camp is where your children can feel free to be themselves.

Every child deserves to go to camp and the Our Kids Camp Expo can help you find an amazing summer camp by introducing you to directors and staff from many different types of camps across Ontario and Quebec all in one day. Explore day and overnight camps that specialize in a range of programs including arts, sports, technology, special needs or an overall traditional experience.

The Camp Expo is the perfect place to discover your adventure and get your questions answered. Learn all about the benefits of camp, how to pay, how to prepare, what to pack, how camps deal with safety and homesickness, and more.

Be sure to bring the whole family to see live animal shows and participate in camp activities, games and crafts. There will be lots of prizes to be won, plus $2,500 in camp scholarships, and each attending family will receive a free 2015 OUR KIDS Camp Guide featuring 230+ programs to choose from.

In support of the Kids in Camp charity, which seeks to send underprivileged kids to camp, Our Kids will donate $1.00 on behalf of each attending person.

Discover Your Adventure at the Our Kids Camp Expo

Posted on February 2, 2014 by Erin McLaughlin

Our Kids Camp Expo Toronto 2014It’s almost that time again – summer camp time! When families think of camp they usually just think ‘fun’, but a camp experience for a child is so much more than that. Camp is a life campus. It helps kids build lifelong skills, like problem solving, leadership and confidence. In a world full of iPhones and iPads, camp alleviates nature deficit disorder and teaches kids the value of unstructured playtime as well as the importance of staying active. It also encourages young minds to learn outside of the classroom and provides a unique opportunity for kids to simply be themselves.

The Our Kids Camp Expo can help you find an amazing summer camp for your child with the chance to speak one on one with many different types of camps all in one day. This festive event will allow you to explore day and overnight camps and after school programs that specialize in a range of programs including arts, sports, technology, special needs or an overall traditional experience.

Whether you’re looking for a gender specific camp or your child has a particular interest you want to help them develop, the Expo is the perfect place to check out the options and get your questions answered. Learn all about the benefits of camp, how to pay, how to prepare, what to pack, and how camps deal with safety and homesickness.

If your family is interested finding out what the camp experience is all about, the Expo will have camp staff and current campers on hand to talk about their day to day activities, what they continue to learn and what they love most about camp. Be sure to bring the whole family to see the live animal shows and participate in camp activities, games and crafts! Plus, in support of the Kids in Camp charity, which seeks to send underprivileged kids to camp, Our Kids will donate $1 on behalf of each attending family.
