Summer is filled with everything kids love — playing outside, hanging out with friends, or discovering new passions. But sometimes, kids might get a little bored during the summer and some well-chosen summer camps will add a spark of excitement to an already awesome season! McKenzie Towne Council is hosting children’s summer camps all July and August and they are ready to play!
McKenzie Towne is a lovely community in southeast Calgary; the McKenzie Towne Council owns, maintains, and manages common amenities and features in the community, as a private, not-for-profit Residents’ Association. Families are welcome to attend the summer camps hosted by the Council, whether or not they are residents of the community.
Summer camps in McKenzie Towne range from sports to arts to engineering. Do you have a young child who needs to keep moving? Then take a look at Sportball! Maybe you have a young doctor-to-be, a tiny dancer, an artist, or a child who would thrive in an Engineering Camp. With camps varying in age from 3 to 14, whatever you choose, you’re choosing a summer filled with fun!

Multi-Sport camps provide an amazing foundation for a lifetime of active living. Sportball kids are kept moving and engaged, learning new skills every day, like soccer, baseball, basketball, football, hockey, volleyball, golf, and tennis.
