About Our Camps

MAMBEC Day Camps are offered at Cole Harbour Place for 9/10 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 on-site playground/library, field games, nature walks (weather permitting) and swims. 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.

2018 Summer Camp Themes

Week 1 – July 2 – 6

Theme: Lego

Everyone loves Lego, especially MAMBEC! Lego is a great way to build critical thinking and problem solving skills. The students can work at all levels of difficulty – there are projects for those with limited Lego experience as well as for the most advanced Lego fanatic! We have over 50 pounds of Lego so there is no limit to what campers can imagine and create!  NOTE:  MAMBEC supplies the Lego, please do not bring your own.

Theme: Young Detectives

There’s been a crime and YOU are the detective! Learn how to investigate and use clues to solve the mystery. Learn what a clue is, what evidence is and what an eye-witness is…are you the sleuth that will solve the mystery?
