Summer is a magical time for kids to learn magic

Do your children want to learn magic this summer? Then you've come to the right place! We've highlighted the magic programs for children offered through Canada this summer.


Sorcerers Safari


When talking about summer, magic and children, the first name that always comes to my mind is Sorcerers Safari Summer Camp. Sorcerers Safaris is a sleep-away camp in the Haliburton Highlands about 2 1/2 hours north of Toronto. This year's camp runs from Tuesday August 30th to Sunday Sept 4th, 2011. The camp is coordinated by Mike Segal and boasts an amazingly talented and experienced staff!

To register or for more information, visit SorcersSafari.ca.

Ottawa

In the Ottawa area, Eric LeClerc runs English and French language magic classes during the summer. His 2011 dates haven't been posted yet. Keep checking his website for more information.


Greater Toronto Area

Some of the Sorcerers Safari Summer Camp crew will also be teaching magic in Toronto area day camps. Some of these day camps are offering an introductory magic classes for the entire camp summer and some of the camps also offer a 'Magic Course/Specialty' that run on particular dates.

At present, the participating day camps are:

  • Bayview Glen: offers a general magic activity 3 days a week for the full summer

  • Zodiac: offers a specialty magic program (a 2 week program, twice over their 8 week summer course)

  • Crestwood (warning, website autostarts a video with sound): offers a general program 4 days a week for the entire summer


For more information about the magic taught at the day camps, contact Sorcerers Safari Summer Camp. For more information about the camps in general, or to register, contact the day camps directly.


We hope your summer is magical!

Taco / burrito seasoning

Inspired by Andrea's post, "Reduced-sodium taco recipe, er, assembly" I went searching for a recipe for taco or burrito meat seasoning. So far, the troops have been pretty happy with this one from Food.com, "Taco Seasoning - Budget Friendly Seasoning for Tacos, Burritos."

Pass the salsa!
