Camps for Kids

McGill runs a variety of day camps including the following:

  • Computer Science: If developing a software program or designing a robotic mission is your teen’s idea of a good time, this program is ideal. This week-long camp is designed to expose students aged 15 to 17 to computer science in all its endless fascination. It immerses them in real-life applications, research groups and team competitions.
  • Conservatory: McGill’s Conservatory Camp is perfect for musically inclined kids aged 5 to 15. In addition to daily doses of choir, dance, percussion, drama and arts and crafts, it offers specialized video, garage band, orchestra and DJ camps. No musical background is required, but musical enjoyment is guaranteed.
  • Explorations: What began as a summer school for gifted students is now an activity-filled enriching program that offers children aged 4 to 18 everything from origami to a smorgasbord of science.
  • Sports: Junior jocks aged 6 to 15 have the run of the University’s state-of-the-art athletic facilities, seasoned instructors and lush green spaces. This activity-filled program is divided into sports, creative activities and aquatics, and the emphasis is on summertime fun, not competition.
  • McCord Museum: Children aged 5 to 12 have fun with history, enjoy nearby city parks and play games while visiting hidden gems around Montreal. This fully bilingual (French/English) day camp offers two themed programs with something of interest to everyone.
