BeforeDaze and AfterDaze are pre/post-camp day programs we offer to parents who require their children to be dropped off earlier and/or picked up later than the regular camp hours. We will be offering our BeforeDaze and AfterDaze program again this year. BeforeDaze runs from 8:00am - 8:30am and 'AfterDaze runs from 4:00pm - 5:00pm. The cost is $5 for each program per day (up to $20). So as an example, if you would like to register for all 5 days of the week for both Before and AfterDaze, it will cost $40/child for the week. The BeforeDaze/AfterDaze form can be downloaded here: BeforeDaze/AfterDaze Form

ABOUT SUMMERDAZE DAY CAMP
SummerDaze Day Camp is part of the evangelization and Salesian youth ministry at St. Benedict Church. SummerDaze integrates St. John Bosco’s “Preventive System” as a guide to all aspects of our program.
SummerDaze is for boys and girls from age 7 (completed Gr. 1) to 14 (gr.8), and runs from 9am to 4pm daily for the month of July and first week of August. We offer sports, games, singing, arts and crafts, drama, and much more, all in a safe Catholic Christian environment. Most activities occur at
St. Benedict and in the neighbouring schools and parks.
Each day begins with prayer. On alternating Fridays the camp offers the celebration of the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Other catechetical instruction occurs throughout the time in small joyful segments through storytelling, drama, sharing, and generally in the way we do things at camp.
Our real strength is in our staff and volunteers, who model and promote playing fair, being sensitive, compassionate, and forgiving, who spend time with the campers and make them feel important and loved. We are reverent when it's time to be reverent, and exceptionally joyful all the time. This is where “reason, religion, and loving-kindness” as Don Bosco described them, occur at SummerDaze, in our time together, playing and having fun. SummerDaze is our attempt to recreate the oratory of St. John Bosco, in Rexdale.
