MKDC’s Summer Camp Program

What do you hope your child will gain from a summer at camp?

Camp isn’t just child care or a form of entertainment. When you enrol your child at MKDC, you can expect a real return on your investment. We create one-of-a-kind immersive experiences that will not only blow your child’s imagination right out of the water, but also actually build your child’s confidence.

MKDC Kids Choose Their Own Activities

One of the ways that Maple Key builds kids’ confidence is by providing the opportunity for our campers to make their own choices. Allowing campers to have input in their program helps them feel more connected and in control. From our new Dreamworld program, to Choose Your Own Adventure, to our insanely creative majors program, offering lots of choice allows MKDC campers to tailor their experience to their own interests and keep things exciting, especially for campers who attend the whole summer.

Consistent Groupings

The MKDC summer camp program is divided into several different age groups (listed below). These groups stay consistent throughout the summer, which means that campers will form close bonds with their cabin leaders as well as the other members of their cabin group. Each age group follows a schedule specifically for their stage of their development, while providing appropriate levels of choice.

MKDC Age Groups

Sprouts (Ages 4 – 5)

Shoots (Ages 5 – 7)

Saplings (Ages 7 – 8)

Heartwood (Ages 9 – 12)

FIREFLY Leadership Program (13 – 14)

Campers are automatically placed in the correct age group at the time of registration according to their birthdate. Please note that in the interest of fairness, we cannot accommodate requests to adjust cabin assignments.
