We Are A Summer Camp
That Thinks Differently.
Imagine a summer where you could go horseback riding, learn to cook, live the life of an athlete, build a robot and star in a show...
Your camp, your summer, your story!
Sunny Acres is the premiere day camp in the West Island of Montreal. Our camp is located on the John Abbott College campus in Sainte Anne de Bellevue. With several athletic fields, an indoor pool, wall climbing, 3 indoor gyms, art rooms, dance studios, theatres and so much more. Our facilities cannot be beat rain or shine. We offer a wide variety of programs and activities to provide your kids with the ultimate day camp experience!
Our traditional camp program is filled with exciting sports and art activities, weekly theme days and special events tailored to each age group. Our specialty camps have something for everyone, whether your child is an athlete, artist, scientist, dancer, cartoonist, or just loves to ride horses, we guarantee there is something for everyone. Best of all, daily Red Cross swimming lessons and free swim are included in all of our programs. Led by an experienced, warm and energetic staff, it’s no wonder we have been so many families’ number one choice for the past 30 years.
For over 30 years, Sunny Acres Day Camp has been committed to ensuring that our campers have the very best camp experience possible. We know that no two campers are the same and that every child has their own unique interests. With that in mind, we take the time to really get to know our campers and offer them a wide variety of programs to suit their interests. We work hard to ensure that all our campers have fun, make new friends and learn new things in a safe and happy camp environment.
Sunny Acres is like a family and we treat every camper like one of our own. We care about them and really work to make sure that they are happy. It’s equally important to us that as parents you feel comfortable sending your children to camp every day. From attentiveness of our office staff to the quick follow-up from our directors and section heads, rest assured that all your questions and concerns will be addressed personally and professionally.
We believe that great staff is the key to a successful and amazing summer camp program. With that in mind, we look for dynamic, outgoing, and energetic staff who will nurture and care for our campers.
Our low camper/counsellor ratio ensures that all campers are safe and well taken care of. All staff participate in mandatory staff training before camp where they learn our camp policies and to deal with a variety of camper situations.
With our many specialty camp options, you can customize your camp experience! You can play golf, learn to ride a horse or improve your soccer skills. Or maybe you’re more interested in the arts. Perform in a play, improve your dance skills, learn to draw or cook in our Little Chefs camp. If science is your thing, we offer several awesome science programs. Play a game of Quiddich in Harry Potter camp, build amazing structures in Bricks4Kids, learn to ride a bike, or check out our new and exciting computer programming camps. For kids who want a taste of everything we offer, our traditional camp is the perfect choice! Our weekly schedule is filled with a great mix of sports, arts, lots of theme days and special events. All programs include daily Red Cross swim lessons.

A Huge Thank You.
For six years now, our 10-year old son Maxime has enjoyed your well-run camp, your inspiring courses and activities, and above all, your passionate, personalized and dedicated attention to our child’s needs. What an amazing reassurance to be able to count on Sunny Acres’ professionalism, year in year out! Without you, Maxime would never have enjoyed his summers as well and as fully. A huge thank you to you Sandy, and your whole team. Can’t wait for next summer!!! Maxime just loves Sunny Acres!

Sunny Acres is amazing! 10/10! The counsellors are always so much fun. We love all the activities, and we’ve tried almost everyone! We’re always excited to go every day and can’t wait to go back again next summer!
Sunny Acres is more than a camp, it’s a home away from home! I know my boys are safe, and well taken care of by the directors and staff. We’re truly treated like family! I’m able to go to work with the comfort and ease of knowing that they are in their capable and caring hands all day. The counsellors are very kind, responsible, and eager to ensure my boys have the best time and experiences each day. The directors are transparent, easy to reach and encourage feedback, which alone speaks volumes. I have nothing but good things to say about this camp, and my boys too! We all look forward to attending every summer without hesitation.
We are very happy with our choice of Sunny Acres Day Camp. The facilities at John Abbott College are great and the varied activities, including daily swimming lessons, were a big draw. The camp directors and staff are engaging and caring and it shows in their interaction with the campers. Although there was some adaption needed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff was able to provide fun programming all summer long. Our son is looking forward to another great summer at Sunny Acres.
