Join us this summer!

Together, McGill University and the McCord Museum offer five different summer camps with innovative and varied programs, including sports camp, computer science camp, explorations camp with a focus on science, conservatory camp and the McCord Museum camp. 

These programs have been designed to ensure that participating children are engaged in educational and exciting activities day long. Read about our different camps below and head over to their individual websites to learn more and register.


Computer Science camp

If developing a software program or designing a robotic mission is your teen’s idea of a good time, this program is ideal. This week-long camp is designed to expose students aged 15 to 17 to computer science in all its endless fascination. It immerses them in real-life applications, research groups and team competitions, all at the Lorne M. Trottier Building, where world-leading computer science is taught and explored during the academic year.

Conservatory camp

Held at the Schulich School of Music, McGill's Conservatory Camp is perfect for musically inclined kids aged 5 to 15. In addition to daily doses of choir, dance, percussion, drama and arts and crafts, it offers specialized video, garage band, orchestra and DJ camps. No musical background is required, but musical enjoyment is guaranteed.

Explorations camp

What began as a summer school for gifted students is now an activity-filled enriching program that offers children aged 4 to 18 everything from origami to a smorgasbord of science. Children are taught by professional teachers, including McGill professors, and the camp is sponsored by the English Montreal School Board.

Sports camp

Junior jocks aged 6 to 15 have the run of the University’s state-of-the-art athletic facilities, seasoned instructors and lush green spaces. This activity-filled program is divided into sports, creative activities and aquatics, and the emphasis is on summertime fun, not competition.
