With school out for the summer, parents all over the townships find themselves with kids desperate for entertainment. This is why summer day camps like the one at Bishop’s University are so popular. After existing for only five years, the Bishop’s day camp has received a tremendous amount of positive feedback as well as loyal campers and staff. According to Christopher Fowlis, the facility manager at the Bishop’s Sports Center, the camp was full in less than 30 minutes after the opening of online registration. “Currently, we are at 110 per cent capacity and are expecting about 200 to 300 students every week,” said Fowlis.

Each bubble is based on the age of the camper and the number of weeks they are attending.
