This is an unprecedented situation in our world. We have made the difficult decision to cancel our overnight camps for this summer and yet we are still excited to host several new options including Day Camps and Micro Family Adventures this summer. See our FAQ section for information about refunds and credits.
We have created three unique, individual, days of camp. Each Day Camp offers a jam-packed day of camp activities that have been adapted to be safe, fun, creative, and spiritually renewing! Not only are we doing many of the camp games and activities we love, but we have developed ‘explosive’ activities, hilarious challenges and new skill building opportunities that will leave students wishing for more! And luckily for them there will be three whole days where each day will have its own feature activities and skills.
The Details:– These camps are for campers going into Grade 1-9– Cost: $50 a day per camper– There is a minimum of 16 campers to run that day camp and have a maximum of 48 campers
We have 3 unique Day Camps that will run 3 times this summer. Your camper is eligible to attend any amount of camps any amount of times that they want. Just know that the specific day camp (i.e. Day Camp 1) will be the same experience on the other day camps of the same number.
Camp 1– July 6 (Mon), 15 (Wed), 29 (Wed)
Camp 2– July 7 (Tues), 16 (Thurs), 30 (Thurs)
Camp 3– July 8 (Wed), 17 (Fri), 31 (Fri)
Camp Harmattan is very excited to provide a Camp Adventure for Families!

This is available for individual adults, couples, and families.
The Details:– Cost: $100/family (includes 2 nights of casual camping)– No meals provided – These Micro Family Adventures require a minimum of 3 families to run and a maximum of 10 families
