The staff’s number one priority is to provide a safe and fun summer for all campers. Register early to ensure that your children don’t miss out on a lifetime of memories.

Camp Mission

Our team is committed to providing children with a safe place to enjoy the summer and to grow as individuals and as members of the community. Through a variety of familiar and new activities and experiences we are confident that your child will develop valuable skill sets and cherished memories.

Camp Vision

At Montreal West Day Camp we are passionate about our community. Throughout the summer we coordinate several fundraising activities, as we believe children are more likely to be involved in a community that gives back. Our goal is to develop confident, respectful, and adventurous young people through engaging activities, weekly trips and our training programs, where lifelong friendships are formed.
