Spring has sprung but Brampton is already looking ahead to the summer with a line-up of new camps and activity programs for kids, youths and young adults.

The City of Brampton revealed its summer camp options for the 2024 season on Monday.

And while registration is still a week away residents can take an advanced look at the offerings and plan which camps they’d like to try.

Two new options are coming this summer, including Camp EMS Trippers where youth with an interest in becoming a first responder can learn from firefighters, paramedics and police officers in a safe, controlled, educational, and fun environment.

There’s also the Brampton Honey Badgers Summer Camp, which will see the Canadian Elite Basketball League founding franchise take over Brampton summer camps from July 8 to 12. Campers will get a unique summer camp experience with a visit from team mascot Hammer and team members, and get to watch the team take on the Ottawa BlackJacks at the CAA Centre.

Other camps returning this year include Camp Inclusive: No Limits, which will be offered at the Century Gardens Recreation Centre and Gore Meadows Community Centre and Library this year.

The Camp Inclusive program helps individuals living with disabilities participate in activities such as crafts, games, music, swimming and special events.

“These fun and inclusive activities will also promote social and motor skills development,” the city said in a release.

Sign-up space will be limited and summer camp registration for residents opens on April 8 at 6 a.m., with non-residents able to apply on April 29.

Signing up for Brampton summer camps can be done in person at any Brampton Recreation centre or online through the city’s recreation portal.

Summer camps and sport programs can be in high demand in Brampton, so the city suggests getting prepared before sign-up day.
