The City of Toronto will begin to offer summer camps across the city starting on July 13 as part of its CampTO initiative, following the provincial government’s announcement that summer day camps can operate during the phase 2 reopening.
Registration begins today and continues to tomorrow:
June 24 – Etobicoke/York & Scarborough June 25 – Toronto/East York, West Toronto/York & North York
CampTO is a new creative camp experience that offers outdoor and physical activities, active and quiet games, arts and crafts, and nature-based activities. This camp features additional staff for smaller camper to leader ratios to help maintain physical distancing in camp and ensure safe supervision of campers. CampTO is designed for maximum fun and safety for campers 6 – 12 years of age.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, CampTO programs will meet health guidelines designed in consultation with Toronto Public Health and in alignment with provincial health guidelines for day camps. Guidelines include lower ratios and capacity, physical distancing, mandatory health screening and enhanced facility cleaning. Learn more at toronto.ca/camps.
