Even with the help of Google, every time I tried finding locally available options for my son, I ended up with results from Ontario, Nebraska or Timbuktu.

Frustrated parents in looking for appropriate local summer activities for their children this summer have a new resource. Kids Camps Canada provides free listings to camp operators and organizes their programs by category into a searchable database available at no cost. Parents can quickly and easily search over 200 camps which meet their particular criteria. The service currently focuses on North and West Vancouver but has plans to expand to other areas of Metro Vancouver in the near future.
Organized by season, geographical regions and activity, this website is a valuable resource both for parents who plan ahead and those searching at the last minute. Unlike common directory lists, Kids Camps Canada includes pictures, descriptions and contact information for each camp in the specified region. Parents can quickly and easily investigate and compare alternatives without having to visit each camp’s website. Complimentary website listings are continually updated by Kids Camps Canada to ensure that a comprehensive directory is available to parents. Parents are encouraged to rate their experience using a standard star system and to submit relevant observations and anecdotes.
For camp operators, Kids Camps Canada offers another effective method of reaching their target audience. They can modify their basic listing or submit a new offering at no charge. For those camps wishing to add pictures, get preferential listings and/or advertise on the website, Kids Camps Canada offers paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and yearly plans. Feature listings also benefit from full social media coverage including blog entries, Facebook and Twitter.
Kids Camps Canada was founded by Magda Figueredo as a result of her own frustration. “Even with the help of Google, every time I tried finding locally available options for my son, I ended up with results from Ontario, Nebraska or Timbuktu. The list of math camps alone was endless. Getting the particulars from each website was confusing and took forever. What I needed was something similar to Urban Spoon but for camps instead of restaurants.”
