Alpha’s Discovery Club camp programs in Mississauga offer a variety of fun and intellectually stimulating activities for children aged 3-9 years old. The Camp programs include a balance of physical, social and intellectual activities to stimulate the whole child. Each week, a new theme is introduced and all activities are focused on that theme.

Weekly Field Trips (Summer Camp only)
Each week, children will go on one full-day field trip. The field trips will coincide with the weekly themes and include the following:
Reptilia, Casa Loma, Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario Science Centre, Provincial Park Conservation Areas, Centre Island
Children will spend the majority of their non-field trip days participating in Drama, Sports, Science and Art/Craft workshops. Children will be exposed to and learn new sports, participate in the drama adventure of the day and make creative art/craft projects. In addition to daily workshops, the children will learn and play co-operative games that focus on building social skills and co-operation.
Alpha’s Discovery Club summer camp is unique, not only because of the weekly adventure themes, but because of its educated and enthusiastic staff. Camp Leaders are chosen based on their ability to work effectively with children of different ages and their commitment to making children their career focus. Our camp leaders have experience working with and leading children at our facility every day.
The ratio of Camp Leaders to children is 10:1 which allows children to receive more one-on-one attention. Summer Field trip ratios are increased based on the age of the children and venue.
The cost of the camp program outlined above covers all activities, including admission for summer field trips. Children are expected to bring their own snacks, drinks and lunch (no nuts allowed) every day. An optional pizza lunch program will be provided on Fridays at an additional cost.
Parents will receive tax receipts that can be used for tax returns.
We are currently accepting registration for all 2017 Mississauga camp programs. A $75 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration. Early bird discounts are offered for summer camp registration that is completed by May 31st.
