New exploration program
Camps begin July 4 and run until Sept. 1 at 156 locations across the city.
Activities to sign up for include traditional day camp experiences, games, dance, drama, music, arts and crafts, and exploring nature. Camps are designed for three age groups: early years (4–5), child (6–12), and youth (13–16).
This summer the city is also introducing a new program, CampTO Explore, a traditional day camp experience plus an excursion to a popular Toronto attraction.
Also available are adapted and inclusive programs for participants with disabilities. The city will offer CampTO Plus, in-person specialty camps at community centres and at three Toronto History Museums sites, which focus on a particular interest or skill such as arts, circus, creative writing, a variety of sports, magic, nature, drama, dance, science, French immersion and more.
