Your programming is great! My children both loved the activities. Your counsellor’s are fantastic – “Caring, fun and awesome” (childs words exactly as said to mom!) One of the children is quiet and shy and they seemed to come out of their shell during the camp. Always knew what was happening and how their day went. Always putting childs safety first. You make going to camp such a pleasant experience for both the children and parents!!!

A great variety of activities, friendly staff. It was our first time at camp and we would definitely return! Great to have an excellent quality day camp in our community.

MKDC is a super place for kids to learn skills, build friendships and have amazing camp fun. My son can’t wait until he can go back.
The staff are amazing. They are so organized and the activities are very well thought out – like the lip sync video that they did this summer.
We are looking forward to the next year, keep up the wonderful job MKDC Team!!
What make me so happy with MKDC is that my son comes and goes with a BIG smile on his face, and that I get feedback from the counsellors. Thank you for understanding my sons needs and for accepting him into your program.

The counsellors. Without a doubt the staff is what makes this program so successful. It is so clear that the kids are developing bonds with them throughout the summer. My son had to go see every counsellor to give him/her a hug before he left on last day (and I can’t get him to give me hugs ever 🙂

“The head staff are approachable, willing to work with special needs children in a positive way. Our situation is a bit unique, and I felt that I could approach the counsellors and director to discuss anything that came up. I have never had so much feedback on my child – it was wonderful.
I like the structured activity in the mornings, with more freedom to choose activities in the afternoon. Being outdoors is important, too. I only ever saw kids laughing and having fun, and the counsellors interacting with parents and children positively. It was nice to see.
[My daughter] was sad to leave, but within five minutes of leaving, was smiling and chatting about her day. I am so thrilled to have fo…

I have seen such a huge change in my son’s self-confidence over the past year, and I have no doubt that MKDC contributed to this in a large way. His sense of self is developing so much. This was especially apparent to me when he had to dress as a fairy for Peter Pan Day…not once did he express dismay that he had to dress up as a fairy…rather he picked out his own outfit (which was spectacular in my view) and carried it off with a flourish…and when asked what he would say if the other kids made fun of him, his response was “I don’t care”. He has made so many new friends, and developed such self-confidence over his summers at MKDC. Absolutely phenomenal camp. My son is already looking ahead to…

So very organized! My girls loved everything, were so happy everyday and very tired 😉 Crafts were awesome and Peyton is so proud to have learned to finger knit. Head staff are excellent and super down to earth! They both raved about their counselors. “They are so nice mommy.. I wanna go back.” Those counselors of yours are fab! Safety was excellent – I really appreciate everyone ensuring Peyton had fun even with her cast on! Making a new friend made Keira so happy! The girls felt comfortable there and were so excited to fill us in about their day. Getting their special beads made them so proud!

My son really enjoyed his first year at MKDC. Your leaders/counselors are upbeat and welcoming. He came home happy every night. the activities are well planned and age appropriate. Thank you for making my son’s camp experience great. He has trouble in new settings but seemed very much at ease. I am sure we will be back next year.

I think your staff is the best at connecting with kids and really making them feel like they belong. My son loved his counselor. Since starting camp my son is also more outgoing and confident and so proud of the things he made. It is nice that there are many components to camp – it appeals to the interests of all kids.
