This program will have kids doing special crafts and playing games of pin the beak on the penguin, burning off energy in the bouncy castle, and experiencing holiday magic with glitter tattoos!

Join us for one day or the full four days. $128 for the four-day camp or $35 per day. Contact Jocelyn for more details!
Special note: As we will be skating on the Arena ice, participants must pay the $45 Skate Canada annual membership fee if they have not yet done so. If your child has been in PreCanSkate or CanSkate since January 2, 2017, they should have their Skate Canada membership still active for this camp. Please contact Katherine ( if you do not know if your child has paid for this fee.

Very important notes about new policy for Playroom Standard Bookings

Standard Bookings are now monthly. As we have reserved a spot for your child and have hired extra Staff to make sure the child-staff ratio is the best, every cancellation will be charged a fee of $10 whether the booking has been cancelled in advance or not. The exception is if the child is sick, and this must be approved by Jocelyn or Chanda. Please refer to our Sick Kids Policy. If you are going on vacation or not needing the Playroom often in a particular month, please cancel the SB and just book for the dates you will require childcare and we will book the kids as long as space is available. We have been dealing with a high volume of cancellations, which makes it hard to Staff the Playroom accordingly. Your child’s safety and wellbeing is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding.

Sick Kids Policy

Please keep kids at home when they have the following symptoms:
1.       No fever for 24 hours
2.       No diarrhea for 24 hours
3.       No vomiting for 24 hours
4.       No unexplained rash in the body
5.       No pink eyes or swelling of the eyes
