Spaces still available in the City’s popular summer camp programs
Parents looking for ideas on how to keep kids active during the summer can still take advantage of the City of Toronto’s summer camp programs. Spaces are still available in summer camps that provide children and youth with a safe, fun and rewarding experience. The summer camp programs operate at 232 locations across the city.

“The City of Toronto offers a wide variety of high quality camps to best suit children’s needs, including children with special needs and disabilities,” says Brenda Librecz, General Manager, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation. “In addition to learning new skills and staying active, camps are a great way to meet new friends and take away great experiences and memories.”

Camp fees are reasonably priced, ranging from $54 per week for general camps to $143 per week for specialty camps. Activities may include crafts, games, sports and workshops. Some specialty camps are designed to foster leadership, visual arts or boating. There are also spaces available in day and overnight specialty plus camps, which provide children with unique outdoor camping experiences built around themes such as environmental studies, hiking, swimming and archery.
