This means more fun and educational play for them, while you don’t have to worry about pick-up or drop-off times.

Activities and experiences at Vivo Camps drive towards: 

PLAY IN ALL ITS FORMS AND ALL THROUGH VIVO AND THE COMMUNITY 

At Vivo, we want you to play everywhere while visiting us. Our centre has many places to play! This may look like unstructured play at the hub, games of soccer, creating art, or even visiting local parks or neighbouring businesses.  

EXPLORERS OF OUR WORLD, THROUGH CHALLENGING OUR BODIES AND MINDS. 

Vivo believes that play can transform your life into a better, happier one!  It is our way of raising healthier generations. At camps, we will live this by trying a new sport, moving your body in a new way, talking to someone new, jumping off something high, or even singing a song. It’s about challenging yourself and building new skills.

CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER, OURSELVES AND THE COMMUNITY 

Did you know Vivo is a charity? It’s true! We give back to the community through our Everybody Plays program. We know we wouldn’t be able to pay it forward with you.  We want to nurture this in the next generation, at camps we will have activities that encourage teamwork, problem-solving, getting life skills like taking the bus and learning about the neighbourhood, cleaning a park, writing and reflecting in journals, and practicing gratitude.
