Arts, science, and adventure await your child at Fort Calgary! With four camps to choose from, kids can get mucky with creatures from the Bow and Elbow rivers, unleash their artistic inspirations, lose themselves in writing, music and drama projects, or dig deep into archaeology and architecture. All campers will go behind the scenes at the museum, explore 40 acres of green space and take the Riverwalk to urban destinations like St. Patrick’s Island. 

Campers will meet with community experts, scientists, artists and storytellers to connect with nature and explore stories from our city’s past and present. All camps include a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, before and after care, and the option to have lunches provided each day. Fort Calgary Summer Camps are inclusive and accessible.
