If you are searching for something for your child to do this summer after the novelty of not having school has worn off, there are many great summer camps on the Island that offer a variety of exciting activities. Here are some of them!
Bricks 4 Kidz Summer Camps
From an informative email:
Our camps are high-energy, fast paced settings where kids explore the world of engineering, architecture and mechanics using LEGO® Bricks. Our camp themes and activities are specifically designed for children ages 5 -12. All camp materials are supplied, and in some cases, allow students access to specialized and hard to find LEGO® products and software they might not otherwise be exposed to. In addition to our proprietary motorized model builds, all of our camps include creative free play time with our giant bags of LEGO® Bricks, LEGO-based games and challenges and other small daily take-homes.
THEMES: Mining & Crafting (Minecraft® based LEGO® activities), Angry Birdies & Bad Piggies, CHI Challenge, Stop Motion Movie Making (age 9+), Ninjago, Bricks 4 Girlz, Super Heroes Academy and Extreme Expedition
COST: Camps are $150/week for either mornings or afternoons ($175 for movie making). FREE lunchtime supervision is provided when you register your child in the morning and afternoon camp at the same location. Alternatively, students can attend the Holland College Canes camp in Charlottetown for the other half of the day for an extra $15/day.
LOCATIONS: Camps will be located at Holland College campuses in Charlottetown and Summerside.

Emmanuel Bible Camp
From the website:
“Our aim at EBC is to provide campers of all ages with an unforgettable, life-changing experience in an atmosphere that’s fun, active, and Christ-honouring. Our mission is to encourage each camper to not only enter into and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but to help them develop Christian character as well. We want to give each one who comes to Emmanuel a chance to learn more about how God personally wants to be involved in their lives!
This all takes place on our beautiful 80 acre campground in Upton, Prince Edward Island, where the camp has been successfully running for sixty years. Campers are well fed with delicious, home-cooked meals. Our caring, experienced staff strive to create an atmosphere that’s enthusiastic and fun through a variety of games, challenges, and day-to-day activities. Emmanuel is the place to bask in the beauty of God’s creation, learn about Jesus Christ, make new friends and memories that will last a lifetime!”
