Kids are naturally curious. They delight in play and they see the world as a place to discover. How do you keep that spark of curiosity and joy alive in your child? Take a look at MRU Camps! They know that kids need to keep ‘play’ close as they navigate their lives, becoming life-long learners who stay curious about the world. A safe and inclusive place for your kids to enjoy their summer, MRU Camps are also a delightful opportunity for children to learn, socialize, play, and have fun!
MRU Camps have been offering educational camps in Calgary for over three decades and are a vital part of the community. They provide an environment for kids to grow, develop, and thrive.
