Family Guide to Ottawa March Break

March Break is fast approaching and Ottawa has no shortage of great camps and fun things to keep the kids busy.

Week-Long Programming & March Break Camps

One of our favourite spots in the city is Wabano Centre! Even more exciting is this week-long sleepover camp for kids aged 0-6 and parents running all week long. Enjoy nature walks, campfires, arts and crafts and cultural teachings, as well as high and low rope courses. Space is limited so make sure to register as soon as you can.

If your child loves sports, Geegees at University of Ottawa offers sport-specific and multi-sport camps to keep kids active and energized all week long.

Take advantage of the snowy capital weather with Camp Fortune and Mount Pakenham’s winter ski and snowboard camps.

Is your child an aspiring spy? The Cold War Museum is offering a week-long camp that teaches kids a wide variety of things, including the art of disguise, interrogation, spy and Cold War technologies. And the whole theme of the camp is capturing the bunker infiltrator, Agent X.
