MRUKids History

Mount Royal University has been offering top-quality camps for children and youth since 1990, when we were known as College Kids. We began as a small operation with 8 camps, approximately 300 campers and 20 staff members. Today, MRUKids welcomes over 2,000 campers and 80 staff to our various camps each summer.
