Waegwoltic Day Camp!

Mon – Fri  |  8:30am - 4:30pm  |  ages 5-11

    

What better location for your kids to spend the endless days of summer? Soak up the best that The Waeg has to offer at our full day summer camp!  Drop your children off in the morning, pick them up at the end of the day, and we’ll take care of the rest!

Our complimentary early drop-off and late pick-up, in-house lunch plan options, and add-on swimming and tennis lessons are just some of the perks that make our summer camp programming the best offering in Halifax.

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 and fun environment. Our dedicated camp staff will make the best use of our sprawling facilities with a new theme every week, afternoon dips in the Lido, games in Fairfield and crafts in the Multipurpose Room. 

There is a true sense of family and belonging that is fostered through the welcoming, generous nature amongst the campers and counselors at The Waeg.  Each day, your child has the chance to make new friends and new memories. That’s what summer camp at the Wage is all about!

Junior Counsellors

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.
