MAMBEC Day Camps are offered at Cole Harbour Place for 9 weeks during the summer break. MAMBEC instructors teach life skills and self-protection at an age appropriate level. Campers will participate in weekly themes with corresponding movies and crafts. Each day, campers will partake in various outdoor activities such as visits to neighboring playgrounds, field games, nature walks (weather permitting), swims, and library activities. Throughout the summer we bring in special presenters (depending on the theme) including magicians, dominoes, animal experts, balloon twisters etc.  Leaders will choose a male and female camper of the week based on their behavior throughout the week. All campers will receive a MAMBEC certificate with fingerprints at the end of their first week.

Online registration is available at, or by calling 902-488-6779.

Week 1:  July 3 – 7


Lego is a great way to build critical thinking and problem solving skills.

We have over 50 pounds of Lego so there is no limit to what campers can imagine and create!  

Week 2: July 10 – 14


Campers get to become their own superhero. Pick a superhero name is and decide what your super powers are! Create a costume, and we’ll take pictures of you soaring over the city! Superheroes get a headband, mask, belt and cape. Learn all about what it means to be a hero, whether you are a superhero or a regular everyday hero.

Week 3: July 17 – 21
