Extended Day Camp Add-on | Register Now                                 
New this year, Poirier Community Centre will be offering an extended day camp. This camp 'add-on' allows parents the flexibility of early drop-off and late pick-up. This is ideal for working parents, who can't pick up kids from camp right at 3:00 p.m. or need to drop them off before 9:00 a.m. Camp leaders will keep kids engaged with games and activities, as well as walk kids to and from their camp rooms. Registration includes access to early drop-off between 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and late pick-up between 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. No drop-in option is available.
