Summer camp 2019

funded by the Government of Canada
The summer camp receives support from the Government through our participation in the Canada Summer Jobs program


Register on-line at iitcamp.eventbrite.ca


Our goal is to provide children (ages 5 to 12) with a summer experience that is exciting and enriching. A place where children can experience the richness, excitement, and warmth of an Islamic environment; a place where children learn the importance of caring, sharing, tolerance, patience, and working with others.

In addition to arts & crafts, recreational and outdoor activities (including field trips), the program will offer Islamic activities based on weekly themes. Our facilities at the IIT, with a huge gymnasium and playing field, prayer facilities and classrooms are ideal for a program of this nature.

The camp also provides the opportunity for university and high school students to gain important skills while they serve as counsellors and volunteers for the program. Just ask the kids who have been coming year after year - our counsellors are young and energetic, responsible and good-natured.

Please note that children may be registered for the entire period or on a weekly basis. There will be no discounts for partial attendance.
