Register Now For Summer Classes
At The Peel Heritage Complex

(Brampton) - Making friends, creating art, learning about history and experiencing new things are great ways for kids to spend the summer.

At the Peel Heritage Complex we make our summer classes as flexible as possible to fit every family's schedule. Half-week classes are $70, five full-days classes are $130. For children staying the full day, we offer lunch supervision. All children will play outside during morning and afternoon breaks. Children must provide their own lunch, a snack and drink. In addition, they must have a hat and sunscreen.

The following is a schedule for summer classes:
