About the Program

For six years, the Department of Athletics and Recreation has been the delegated organization of the Ville de Sherbrooke Day Camp in the borough of Lennoxville. While tailored towards English-speaking children, the Bishop’s Day Camp is one of the only bilingual day camps in Quebec! Operating out of the John H. Price Sports Centre, each day, children have to opportunity to participate in cooperative games, crafts, swimming, science, theatre, sports, and cultural activities – all this means fun and MORE FUN!

Day Camp ChildrenAmenities include:

  • State of the art classrooms;
  • Indoor & Outdoor pool;
  • Two double gymnasiums;
  • Ample field space;
  • Eating areas (Lounges and Terrace and a Tim Hortons);
  • Dance Studio & Combat Room;
  • Fully equipped Library (Bishop’s University Campus)

You may also want to register your child for swimming lessons which are offered on campus. We will ensure they get from one activity to the next. Note: to participate, your child must be registered for these activities and the fees paid in advance. New themes are chosen each week to stimulate your child’s imagination and introduce him or her to new activities. See the Fees document for information on prices and options.

Special Activities

Your child will be invited to participate in special activities over the summer in addition to the normal day camp activities. Some of the special activities take place on-site while others involve travel by bus. These special activities come at an additional cost. During these outings, a day care service will be available on campus for those not wishing to participate. A schedule of activities and their costs will be provided to parents during the evening information session.

What sets us apart?

Health and Safety

Health and SafetyOur number one priority is always the children’s health and safety. We take great pride in knowing that every child who attends the Bishop’s Day Camp, leaves an emotionally and physically stronger person. Our staff members are all first-aid certified, and our Security Department staff are first responders. In addition to the great staff on hand, our building is equipped with multiple AED’s, first-aid kits and logs. Our Animators and support staffs are vigilant in ensuring each child makes their way home safely through our safe check-out procedure.

Animators

Certified Camp AnimatorsThe Bishop’s Day Camp provides low animator to child ratios to ensure each child receives individual attention. All Day Camp Animators are DAFA certified and hold valid First Aid CPR & AED certification cards. In addition to the Animators – Facility Supervisors and Campus Security are readily available for any need of assistance. We are very fortunate for the amount of students attending Bishop’s University and Champlain College. Many of our animators are currently studying in the School of Education or Special Care Counselling program on campus. Today’s leaders preparing tomorrows.

Location

Our beautiful campusIMPORTANT NOTE
Bishop’s University and the Ville de Sherbrooke are currently exploring the opportunity of the 5-6 & 7-8 age groups being located at LES (Lennoxville Elementary School) for a certain period this summer. Access to rooms on the Bishop’s University Campus this summer is quite limited due to renovations, educational programs, and COVID-19 regulations). Once the situation is confirmed, we will contact the parents registered.

All activities take place (unless otherwise indicated) in the John H. Price Sports Centre on Bishop’s University campus. We are privileged to have two double gymnasiums, two pools, two state-of-the-art classrooms, lounges, terrace, art rooms, fields (grass and turf), dance studios and so much more to use during the Day Camp! In addition to the Sports Centre, we take advantage of the beautiful Bishop’s University campus and use spaces like the newly renovated Library for our Big Buddy Reading Program, or Bishop’s Quad for a great game of capture the flag. Last year, our 12-14 age group spent multiple sessions in the Biology Labs learning about DNA. See more information on the John H. Price Sports Centre.
