    About Bayview Glen Camp

    Bayview Glen Camp - unforgettable summer memories since 1962! Our facilities include air-conditioned buildings, extensive nature trails for exploring, gymnasiums and sports fields. Daily schedules include a variety of sports, arts and technology with choice elective for older campers. Lunch, snack, premium camp backpack and door-to-door transportation are included in fees.

    Our youngest campers participate in pre-structured activity rotations including arts, sports, cooking, water play, mini-mastermind activities, and more. As our campers get older they are able to customize their daily schedule by choosing from a number of specialty camp options in the arts, sports, technology-based, and even some very unique off-site camps too.

    COVID-19 Response 

    We are extremely proud to say that operated an extremely safe Summer Camp season in 2021! Our robust COVID-19 policies ensured there were no COVID-19 cases on-site at any point in the Summer! Building on what we learned during the Summer of 2021 we look forward to continuing to provide our camp community with a safe environment for them to create lasting Summer memories.

    Our updated health and safety protocols include: daily COVID-19 screenings prior to arrival at camp each day, consistent cabin cohorting, increased cleaning and disinfecting schedules for all camp facilities, proper PPE use (including masking), and increased scheduled handwashing time for all cabin cohorts.

    We also want to highlight how refunds and cancellations due to COVID-19 will be handled:

    If your camper misses camp due to a fellow camper in their cohort having tested positive for Covid 19, you will be refunded in full for days missed to adhere to the 14 day quarantine (this may be updated at any time to stay aligned with updated government regulations). If your camper misses camp due to a having come in contact with Covid 19 outside of camp, you will not be refunded for days missed.

    Should you need to cancel your camp registration due to a cancellation of our bus transportation offerings, you will be refunded your fees in full, less a $250 cancellation fee per household.

    Director's Message

    Daniel Garfinkel, Camp Director

    Dear Friends,

    We are thrilled that you are considering Bayview Glen Camp for Summer 2022!  After an amazingly successful Summer of 2021 where our camp program was re-launched and we were able to ensure the health and safety of each camp participant we could not be more excited for the Summer of 2022! Come and see why BVG is the place to be! 

    Our Camping Philosophy

    Our priority at Bayview Glen is to provide our campers with the safest possible environment for them to learn more about themselves and grow as individuals. We know that a well-structured camp program can be an integral experience that shapes the confidence and individuality of youth of all ages!

    Our Camp Program

    Our youngest campers (Wildling Age Group Jk - Grade 1) have an extremely diversified camp schedule each day that leads them through activities such as cooking, arts n' crafts, martial arts, sports, water-play, music, and so much more. Wildling campers also participate in a "mini-mastermind" program after lunch each day that has been specifically created to build their reading, writing, and math skills. Each day ends with a high energy outdoor Music Fest concert where campers get to sing their favourite camp songs!

    Our older campers (Trailblazers Gr. 2 - 4 and Mavericks Gr. 5 - 7) have more of an opportunity to "choose their own adventure" when selecting their daily schedule. This is done by selecting a half-day specialty camp. Specialty camp options include Visual Arts, Basketball, Soccer, Robotics, Coding, Magic, and even off-site programs such as Sailing and Lake Days/Watersports Camps. The other half of their day is spent rotating between a diverse selection of camp activities to ensure each camper receives a well rounded camp experience each day!

    Our Site

    Being one of the few camps located in the heart of Toronto that is able to offer ample outdoor and greenspace we ensure our campers have plenty of time outdoors each day. Our outdoor facilities include a wooded ravine area, full-sized turf soccer field, 2 playgrounds, sandboxes, a gaga ball pit, and more! On hot days (and during indoor specialty camp activities) campers are able to take advantage of all of Bayview Glen Private School's facilities including air-conditioned classrooms, art studios, full-sized theatre, robotics lab, cafeteria, and 2 full-sized gymnasiums. 

    Our early bird registration begins in the first week of October and our on-line registration system has proven to be a convenient, efficient, accurate and environmentally friendly way of registration. We look forward to answering any questions that you may have  to help you make the most educated decision regarding your child’s upcoming summer.

    We truly hope that we will have the privilege of spending Summer of 2022 with your family!

    Most sincerely yours in camping,

    Daniel Garfinkel

    Camp Director

    • It Takes More Than a Day...Bayview Glen Day Camp

      Come Grow With Us

      It takes the experience of one of Toronto’s most comprehensive, longest-running summer camps, Bayview Glen Camp. For 60 summers, we’ve been the reason why thousands of Toronto children and their families count the days until July. Many of our campers have grown up with Bayview Glen and return to us again and again; sometimes even as counsellors and, eventually, as parents of new campers. In fact, readers of City Parent have voted us the city’s Best Co-Ed Day Camp (more than once)!

      It Takes a Tradition

      Bayview Glen Camp has created unforgettable memories for thousands of boys and girls since 1962. Our philosophy is part of the secret to our success. We see each child as an individual, giving them many opportunities to grow and express themselves. Our diverse, well-balanced program helps campers build confidence, make friends, learn new skills and fully explore their world. We encourage campers to do things for themselves and for others, because we believe it’s the best way for them to learn and grow.

      It Takes a Community

      Every season, Bayview Glen Camp welcomes  families from the Greater Toronto Area, including hundreds of returning campers. To take extra-special care of them in the Bayview Glen way, we carefully hand-pick experienced staff from over 1,500 candidates we interview each year. Including counsellors, specialists, supervisors and nurses, our 1:6 staff-to-camper ratio is exceptionally high. This ensures that, while it is often exciting, camp is always safe for campers.

      It Takes a Lifetime

      Bayview Glen Camp’s age-specific units range from enriched, balanced programs for our youngest campers to activity electives and special programs that give older campers plenty to choose from as their tastes broaden. From our Wildling program starting at age 4 to our Leadership Training for teens, Bayview Glen’s programs adapt to all ages and needs. There’s something new to look forward to every summer including more great times to share with new friends and friends you’ve known forever.

      It Takes Each Child as an Individual

      Every child is different: some enjoy the arts, some prefer sports and most like a bit of everything. We balance activities for body and mind, and our electives and programs recognize the uniqueness in everyone. We’re proud of our rewarding Inclusion Program that integrates children with exceptionalities. All our campers enjoy the same safe, inclusive, creative and energetic camp experience and... Bayview Glen Camp continually reinvents itself to ensure that each summer is fresh and exciting.

      It Takes a Special Place

      The secure, leafy campus of Bayview Glen School gives our camp a country environment, centrally placed in the heart of the city. It also gives us all-day access to a wealth of facilities including a full-sized turf soccer field, air-conditioned gymnasiums, a 350-seat theatre, cafeteria, art studios and our cool classroom “cabins”. Two large, tree-shaded decks overlooking the 40-acres of conservation parkland are favourite settings for any activity and barbecues.

      It Takes the Great Outdoors

      Nature is key at Bayview Glen Camp. Every day, it’s right up-close in the wonders of the ravine and the sound of birds and rustling leaves in “our” forest. We help campers experience the great outdoors as an adventure, inspiring them to respect nature as they do.

      And, Of Course, It Takes Each Day, and Makes it Unforgettable

      Each day begins and ends with fun starting with drop-off or community-based bus bus service options. Small - and staffed by counsellors – our buses have personalities. Campers and staff throw themselves into decorations and camp cheers. This makes Bayview Glen buses easy to identify all summer long! Between activities, there’s a freshly-prepared lunch in our air-conditioned lunch rooms, snacks twice daily plus surprise picnics and barbecues. Offering the foods kids love ensures that campers have the fuel they need for their high-energy day. 

      Come Grown With Us...Bayview Glen Camp

      For the whole summer or just for a part of it, Bayview Glen offers you an experience that will always make you smile. We’d be happy to answer your questions – and even happier to welcome you to our extended Bayview Glen Camp family. Some of our units fill up as early as November, so please plan early. We hope to see you soon!
