It really is that time of year again. Summer comes so fast and camps fill up before we can blink. It is summer camp registration time Mississauga! Summer camp is not just about sending your precious ones away to sleep in cabins far away from home. Right here in the Mississauga area, there are many ways to keep our youngsters occupied through the summer. Day camps in Mississauga feature all types of sports, music, visual arts, drama, language instruction, academic and any combination of these. You will find most camps specialize in one area or another but are completed with a very well rounded program. No matter what age, no matter what interest there is a camp for every child. To keep parents informed and assist in making the right choices, Mississauga Kids will feature all the best local camps in a series of articles this April. Information is trickling in so these camps are in no particular order. Regular updates will be provided!
