The countdown is on. No more teachers, no more books… (you know how the rest of the song goes.) Soon the kids will be set free for summer, which means we need to find ways to keep them busy at summer camp while the teachers get a break and restore their sanity. (Props to all the teachers out there, I don’t know how you do it)
What's Your Collingwood Vibe?
If you live in Collingwood, are a weekender who wants to take advantage of the summer activities in the area, or you are looking for a fun get-away from the city, Collingwood and the surrounding area has lots of summer camps to keep your kids busy while you work (like me), rest or play.
From mountain biking, nature discovery and tree-trekking to music and theatre and pretty much everything in between there is lots to choose from.
