Black Creek Pioneer Village Adventure Day Camp is a summer day camp with a difference! Children ages 5 to 12 will go behind the scenes of Toronto’s living history site to experience life in the 1860s. Campers will dress, work and play pioneer style, as they participate in old-fashion fun and games and learn pioneer skills. Enjoy a different theme each week!
It’s right to expect that Black Creek offers summer programs based in history, and certainly they do. That said, the programing is more varied, and more creative, than you’d think at first blush. Sessions range from craft programs, to superheroes saving the village from villains. Kids love to dress up, to try on new identities in new contexts, and that’s something that the setting here offers in abundance. Even for adults, it’s a chance to step away from the city, though without having to drive hours to do so. That environment is a draw, though so is the expertise and the creativity with which the programs are run. They’ve been at it a long time, and have built a strong staff and best practices. There’s certainly a lot to love, not restricted to a chance for kids to step back in time.
