Q: What makes Toronto Kidz Summer Camp different than other camps?
A: At our camp every kid is recognized for its individuality and different interests. We have a genuine interest in their personality, their preferences and favourite activities. We are parents ourselves and understand how comforting it is to know that the kid has a fun day making friends while discovering new things and building new skills.
Q: How many kids are at the camp every week?
A: At our High Park North location we have two age groups and a total capacity of 40 kids per week. At our Wychwood Park and Roncesvalles location we have a capacitiy of 30 campers per week.
Q: Which weeks still have spots ailable?
A: Please check the program page for the location you want to sign up for to check current availability.
A: The ratio is 6 campers to 1 counsellor.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: No, campers bring their own lunch plus 2 snacks (one for the morning and one for the afternoon). Most campers bring sandwiches, however, we do have a microwave and will be happy to warm up any food for your child. We also have a fridge where we can store lunch boxes if desired.
Q: How does the daily schedule look like?
A: On a regular day we start with a morning circle and some icebraeker games. After our morning snack we head outside to a nearby park until noon. After lunch inside, we keep busy with some indoor games before we head outside again. After afternoon snack time, we do some handicrafts and play more indoor games before the day ends. On our field tirp days to one of Toronto's main attractions and to High Park our programming changes as we spend most of the day on the field trip. Afternoon activities still include arts and crafts and some indoor or outdoor games.
Q: My child will be 4 in the summer and turn 5 until end of year. Can she/he join the camp?
A: Yes, as long as your child will start Senior Kindergarten in September, they are welcome to join!
Q: Is Toronto Kidz Summer Camp associated with the churches where the camps take place?
A: No, we are different organizations and we simply rent space at the churches.
Q: Will the two groups be always separate or overlap at times?
A: Both groups will follow the same weekly program and will be separate for most of the activities. However, they will overlap for most of lunch and snack times and some of the indoor activities.
Q: Is before and after care available?
A: Yes, at an extra cost of $10 per day you can add extended care to drop off your child as early as 8 am and pick up your child as late as 5:30 pm.
Q: When do we pay for the camp?
A: Upon sign up all, full payment is due. In case you need to cancel, the payment is refundable minus a $35 admin fee up to 30 days prior to the start of the week. If you want to set up a weekly payment plan, please contact us through the below form.
Q: What if my child speaks no English?
A: While we don't offer English classes, we always have a number of campers who don't speak English and we integrate them well. They end up having a great time while learning some English in a fun environment.
