Have a child in camp this year? Each spring, we publish a new "Camper Parent Guide" to keep parents informed about what to expect. Below is our 2018 version! The countdown begins!
Waegwoltic Day Camp!
Mon – Fri | 8:30am - 4:30pm | ages 5-11
Year after year, we’re inspired by the past successes of our Summer Camp program to continue learning from each season, and creating what we feel is truly the best day camp option around! So, if you haven’t already taken advantage...
Sign your child up for the best that The Waeg has to offer! Our truly unique summer camp experience offers parents the peace of mind that comes with knowing their kids are active, engaged and having a blast in a safe, fun environment. Our young campers spend their day with a mature and caring staff who have a passion for working with children. Drop them off in the morning, pick them up at the end of the day, and we’ll take care of the rest!
We strive to be partners with our parents as we help their children grow and thrive. And, we try to make summer camp convenient for parents, too! Our complimentary early drop-off and late pick-up, in-house lunch plan options, and add-on swimming and tennis lessons are just a few of the perks that make our summer camp programming the best offer in Halifax. We provide children with the opportunity to connect with the great outdoors, to participate in human-powered activites, and to benefit from the personal connections they make with our staff and our campers.
There is a true sense of family and belonging that is fostered through the welcoming, generous nature of our campers and counselors at The Waeg who strive to provide campers opportunities to participate in what they love while taking on experience and challenges. Your child will make the best use of our sprawling facilities, with afternoon dips in the Lido, active games in Fairfield, outdoor crafts, and more!
Each week, there’s a new theme, and they’ll have the chance to make new friends and new memories.

Our summer camp staff are thoughtfully selected and thoroughly trained. All of our staff are certified in both Standard First Aid and CPR-C. In addition, all camp staff are High Five® certified. High Five® is a nationally recognized organization that has created a quality standard for recreation facilities across Canada. High Five® training highlights five principles that support healthy child development:
1) A Caring Adult;
2) The opportunity to make Friends;
3) The opportunity to Play;
4) The opportunity to Master Skills; and
5) The opportunity to Participate.
Furthermore, all of our staff are supervised by two Camp Coordinators who report directly to Katelyn Matheson, our senior administrator of programming and recreation at the Club. In addition to our core staff, our summer camp also benefits from the supervision of our 30+ fully qualified lifeguarding staff.

We're very excited for the return of our popular Junior Counsellor Program. This program is a volunteer opportunity aimed at helping young adults gain valuable work-related experience and leadership skills in a recreational environment.
Participants will build on self-esteem, work-ethic, and a range of skills that can be applied to future education and job experiences. All Junior Counsellors are expected to enroll in 2 weeks of the program over the course of the summer. All applicants will be accepted to the program, and we will do our best to accommodate busy summer schedules.
To apply, download and submit (to email@example.com) our Jr. Counsellor Application.
