Summer Camps in Winnipeg (2024) - The most up-to-date list!

It’s that time of year, if you can believe it.  Yes, it is February… Even so, lists have opened up and programs are filling up.  It is literally THAT fast!


Every year, we have a number of clients migrating to Winnipeg that are looking for fun activities to register their children in.  Also, as Winnipeg Parents, Logan and I are shocked every single year when others mention new camps that we have yet to hear of. So, as a way of keeping track of the various offerings, I’ve decided to compile an annual list so that I know the options and when to register for them.


I have endeavoured to make this list as exhaustive as possible, but I am human and can miss some options.  If there is a camp that you would recommend, please send it my way.  I want to have a complete list of options all in one spot, so that we all have an easy spot to check year after year.


This is my third year doing this list, and I’ve already discovered several that were missed last year thanks to your comments and feedback.  So, let’s keep this list up-to-date and growing.


Without further adieu, let’s get to it!  This list is mostly compiled in order of type of camp, and then age group (with youngest groups at the beginning).


Thanks again to all that provided input or helped me with updates for the Winnipeg Summer Camp list of 2024.


If you want to be updated when our list comes out, be sure to sign-up for our newsletter HERE. I promise - we DO NOT spam our clients. We send out one monthly newsletter with what is up in Winnipeg in the upcoming month, usually there is a giveaway for a local business, and some intersting local information.  If you do not wish to receive our newsletter, please plan to check back on our blog next February.
