McMaster Department of Athletics & Recreation Camps: March Break & Summer

Stay Connected: Facebook Twitter Instagram

A summer tradition for Hamilton area youth since 1977, McMaster Sport Fitness School has been a constant in sharing the joys of play, learning and friendship with our community while building memories that last a lifetime. Although 2020 saw our traditions put on hold, the McMaster Athletics & Recreation Camps team has been hard at work to re-imagine our programming to deliver the best possible experience in today’s climate while focusing on the health and safety of your children.

We are currently preparing a return to our regular programming and ancillary services for the 2022 season. We will continue to operate under guidance from the Ontario Camps Association (OCA), Hamilton Public Health, and McMaster University and will update families as information becomes available. McMaster Camps and the university will continue to assess on a daily basis the COVID-19 situation and any changes to public health recommendations. McMaster Camps programming may be subject to change or cancellation with limited notice. We appreciate your understanding.

Life just isn’t the same without summer camp and we can’t wait to make more memories together!

Camp Spaces & Parking: Construction Notice

Camp Spaces & Parking: Construction Notice

In October 2018, construction started on the Student Activity and Fitness Expansion at David Braley Athletic Centre (DBAC) and Ivor Wynne Centre (IWC). A few of our camp spaces have changed as a result, but our commitment to Fun and Learning is still the same.
