Why register for MRU Kids?

MRU Kids has been committed to providing top-quality, innovative, educational and engaging programs for children and youth ages 5-14 for more than 25 years. We have a wide range of camps which focus in fields such as arts, sciences, leadership, technology and sports. At MRU Kids, your child will learn and grow in a safe and exciting environment. Campers are guided by qualified, motivated and safety-conscious staff who love working with children and youth. Our summer camps include daily recreation times, as well as free before- and after-camp care.

Parking Information

Please note you can park in Lot 2 on the WEST side of campus. If you choose Lot 2, the maximum allowable time without paying is 30 minutes. On June 30, 2017, for safety reasons Mount Royal University permanently closed two sections of Mount Royal Circle, an inner campus road that goes around our main building.

With increasing development in the neighbourhood, the number of vehicles taking a shortcut through the Mount Royal campus, frequently at higher speeds, continues to rise. There have been many near misses involving pedestrians and vehicles. Other campuses have experienced the same problem and by closing inner roads were able to improve safety.

We realize the road closures may be an inconvenience for some visitors to our campus, but it is a necessary step to ensure the safety of pedestrians. To minimize the inconvenience, parking lots will remain accessible, bus routes will not change and new signage will help redirect traffic.

Closure gates will be used as barriers. In an emergency, these gates can be lifted to allow access to emergency vehicles. The gates may also be lifted in special circumstances, such as when students are moving into Residence.

Thank you for your cooperation as we implement this change on our campus.
