MRU Kids Summer Camps Underway


Either Mount Royal University students are getting shorter or it’s summer and MRU Kids campers are roving through the hallways.

MRU Kids offers day camps for ages 5 to 17 in sports, science, business, arts and more. Most camps are one or two weeks long, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with free before  and after care. Every camp includes supervised daily recreation time in the swimming pool as well as outdoors on the campus grounds.

Some parents whose kids were planning to attend summer camps at the Calgary Zoo or Talisman Centre cancelled due to flooding are turning to MRU Kids instead.

Over 3,000 campers will take part in 19 different programs this July and August. New programs for 2013 include:

  • For creative and curious kids (ages 5-9), the Movers and Shakers program.
  • Triathlon Camp (ages 9-14). Train to run, bike and swim with experienced triathletes.
  • Junior Innovators (ages 9-14). Learn creative problem solving, innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • Junior Leaders (ages 9-14).  Learn leadership skills, decision making, goal setting and peer mentoring as well as peer pressure and bullying.

These new programs join popular camps such as Magical Adventures, Rising Stars, School of Rock, Reel-2-Reel Film School, Science Academy and Camp Glee. Sports programs include Golf, Outdoor Adventures and Multi-Sport. Check out all the camp offerings.

Since 1990, MRU Kids camps have offered top-quality child and youth programs with a fun-focused practical approach.
