WHAT WE DO
Bulldog opened in 2007 with the goal of helping kids become healthier and happier. Since then we have had the privilege of working with and growing alongside hundreds of families. We take pride in being invested in every child’s well being as we strive to ensure a positive environment where they can develop physically, emotionally and intellectually. We understand that each child’s needs are unique and we work with parents to develop individual strategies so that every child can reach their full potential.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for your child. We look forward to working together with your family to help your child grow and develop over the coming years.
DID YOU KNOW!? On July 1st 2017 Bulldog moved to a new space! We made the big move to be able to expand our programs, get our kiddos outside and start a preschool! That's right, we're a little crazy but we wouldn't trade our jobs for the world! We love what we do and we are excited for the crazy shenanigans of Summer 2018!
Some of the highlights of our new space:
25,000 sq. ft facility
2 acres of fenced in outdoor play space
large games area
expanded snack bar
same awesome staff!
Bulldog Summer Camp Payment Policy
Bulldog requires that all our services be paid in advance. Bummer right? We do this simply because when people reserve spots and don't show up, other kids don't get a chance to take those available spots and then they miss out on camp at Bulldog! So unfair! So we will not reserve spots without payment but we are reasonable people after all. So here's the deal...
If you are booking just one week of camp... you'll probably regret it ;) but it must be paid in full at time of booking.
If enrolling in multiple camps, The last week of camp must be paid in full at time of registration. Remaining weeks must be paid the Monday before the scheduled camp via post-dated cheques or Credit Card number kept on file.
Easy right? You're welcome :)

-Bulldog Camp Parent
Summer camp at Bulldog is not your average camp. We believe that for children to learn and grow it is important for them to experience new things.
Our camp program developers are always pushed to plan an even better camp than the previous year. We use weekly themes as a method to keep things fresh and exciting for campers and to allow us to step inside a magical world of imagination and creative play. We take pride in our camps and we'd love to show you that we are a step above our competition.
Our summer camp leaders are given full authority to put their own fun & exciting spins on any of our planned activities. We truly believe that if our team loves coming to work, that kids will love coming to camp.
Bulldog is not a free for all. We are a controlled environment where kids are encouraged to show kindness, to make new friends and to try new things.
Our Bulldog team works closely with campers and their families to offer our children the best camp experience possible.
Our big move has given us the freedom to do exactly that.
We've got some pretty cool stuff planned for this summer and it's only going to get better for our Big Bulldog Community.
We are so excited to have you all join us this summer and truly hope your family will love every minute of being a part of ours.
At Bulldog, kids ages 4-9 are called "Rookies". Rookies focus on skills like making new friends, trying new things and just having fun!
youth leadership camps
At Bulldog, kids ages 9-14 are called "Veterans". With veterans we focus on skills like teamwork, leadership, character development and empathy.
We have tons of fun at our leadership youth camps and the past few summers have been absolutely awesome!
Last summer our campers got the chance to experience so many fun new things! We had the best day at Sainte-Marie Among The Hurons during our Amazing Race week, where we were able to haul water using a yoke, learn to start fires, make cornhusk dolls and we even got to learn how to portage a canoe. Other weeks we visited Wonderland, Wildfire Lodge, tried Archery Tag, attempted a Ninja Obstacle course, went rock climbing, tree top trekking, caving and so much more! We also spent lots of time on our outdoors sports fields learning and playing all the sports your kids know and love, as well some unique Bulldog creations.
The best parts of our camp is the opportunity kids have to develop their teamwork, practice their leadership abilities and try new things. Our goal is to see kids grow in self-confidence, self-esteem and to build friendships that will last beyond the end of camp.
We also have a unique program for our older campers who just aren’t ready to leave Bulldog :) For campers who have done camp with us and are now 15 years old, we offer a one year volunteer program where they can step up to a true leadership role and learn valuable new skills that will help prepare them to enter the workforce. It is also the best way of getting a job with Bulldog, as many of our volunteers will get to work with us once they complete the program! #awesome
