Summer Camps For 4 Year Olds

These are the needles in the haystack – summer camps for 4 year olds! Many camps take kids over 6 but these ones know that children in kindergarten need summer camps, too! A few of these camps also take kids as young as 3 because those fall birthdays can be tricky!

This list is new and growing every day, so save it and check back often.

If you know of a camp that takes kids as young as 4, please let us know here.

Why don’t all camps accept 3 and 4-year-olds? In Ontario, if a day camp wants to offer programming for children who are younger than 4, the camp needs a child care licence or needs to follow the rules for unlicensed child care. This includes a smaller child-to-counsellor ratio, plus a few other stipulations that normally only apply to childcare operators.
