Specific Training Areas are at the heart of everything we do.

Exposure to such a broad range of experiences at a young age in a fun and nurturing environment enhances learning about the self and the surrounding world.
Your child will be placed with a specialist in the field of their selected activity. Activities range across the areas of Arts, Academics, Athletics & S.T.E.M. Whether they want to brush up on an old skill or try something new, we definitely have an S.T.A for you! Who said learning can’t be fun?
With over a decade of proven results from our camp operations, Laurus is excited to continue sharing its learning philosophy throughout the school year and on weekends with our Lifestyle Programs. Our researched programming applied to our S.T.As will forever be at the root of each of our offerings.
Just because school isn't in session doesn't mean the learning has to stop! Your child will have the chance to spend time focusing on various educational subjects of their choosing, giving them the confidence they need to excel wherever they choose, whether it be inside or outside the classroom.
Academic offerings include; Languages, Math, Science, Chess, Literature, and more!
The ability to engage a child's mind artistically is one of the most important aspects of Laurus Programming. Teaching them to think outside the box, follow the rhythm, discover the movement of dance and the confidence required in theatre are all part of our Arts programming.
Art offerings include; Arts & Crafts, Cooking, Painting, Theatre, Dance, Magic, and more!
Laurus provides its campers with the tools to motivate them to learn math, science, and technology integrated with engineering. Your child will be able to develop, build, program and operate various kinds of robots with practical functions of interest to him/her, as well as create and code their own video game.
S.T.E.M offerings includes; Coding, Robotics, Stop-Motion Animation, Video Editing, and more!
A key aspect of learning about yourself is learning about your own body, and what better way to do that then through sports! Your child will not only learn the rules of individual and team sports as well as details regarding strategy, gameplay and teamwork.

My 5 year old son came back happy and tired in the afternoon. Could not stop telling us what he did at science group. Really thankful for the staff who took good care of him during this past week. Sure we would go back to this camp next summer!
Laurus summer camp is a great camp.... the staff there is great they are always playful with the kids and learn new things from them!!! My sisters go to this camp and all I hear them say when we are home is that they want to come. Whenever I go and drop my sisters off I get the chance to meet all the counsellor and see the kids with smiles on there face and having fun... if I had to recommend a camp to go to LAURUS SUMMER CAMP!!! Is the best!!😊
My son went for the first time this summer (Beaconsfield location). He participated in basketball, science and robotics. I was impressed with how smoothly run it was with the COVID protocols, heat waves and even a power outage. Will be returning.
We sent our son to the downtown camp and he had an amazing time! The staff was very professional and they really handled the covid situation well! The director, Bailey, was really amazing. Communication was great, responded on time and everything was very clear. They made an abnormal summer into a fun summer and we are so thankful that we had this opportunity. He LOVED science and all the counselors (im still hearing about Mango, Zed, Pancake, Robin, and many more..) Would recommend the camp to anyone and looking forward to the coming years!
Our girls have been part of the Laurus family for the past five summers. Every June, they walk through those doors and feel at home. I can’t wait to pick them up and hear the hilarious stories of kids just being kids and the camp allowing them to truly be themselves. The administration and counselors are amazing... always accommodating, friendly, warm and fun!
My children have been attending Laurus for the past 4 summers and have had wonderful experiences there. The staff are attentive, warm and know how to engage the kids and make sure they have a great time. The number one rule of Laurus Summer Camp is after all to have fun and the team at Laurus really knows how to make this happen! Thanks to the whole team for giving our kids such great experiences and memories to treasure!
We sent our 7 year old for two weeks to Laurus downtown campus this summer. With the pandemic, this was the first activity and time spent away from home. I was impressed by the COVID-19 protocols put in place and the protocols were followed closely by staff. It felt reassuring to know we were leaving our child somewhere safe, and fun! Our daughter came home the first day asking if camp continued on the weekends:-) she loved the activities, the themes, made new friends and really connected with counsellors Evie, Rainbow and Peaches. Thank you for the positive experience!
Amazing staff full of energy, a playful spirit and very kind-hearted. My kids always leave camp feeling great!
My 2 boys (ages 8 and 12) had a great time at the Laurus Summer Camp! The staff was so kind, helpful and amazing. The boys enjoyed the activities and everyone made them feel included. The boys are looking forward to attending next year!!! Great camp
Fantastic experience working at Laurus. Experts in the educational field lead the team of counsellors, as the kids are provided a safe, exciting and healthy environment. Could not recommend the camp enough for a great work experience, and a fun filled summer. Management treats counsellors with the utmost respect and support as you truly feel fulfilled as a member of the work team.
My son attend their summer camp last summer and he had an absolute blast!!! It was by far our greatest first experience and we are excited to register again for this year!!! Activities are fantastic and most of all they are so welcoming to the younger crowd and new children!!
Amazing staff! Friendly, professional, efficient and all around Amazing! Highly recommend!
Laurus summer day camp was a great time for our daughter. The professionalism from the camp organizers to staff was great. They made my wife and I feel very comfortable signing up our daughter. It was our daughters first time at a day camp and she had a blast all summer. We originally only signed her up for a few weeks and then we kept adding on weeks for her as she loved it and ended up there all summer. Thank you again Laurus camp and see you next summer!
