About this Camp

City Scouts: Urban Adventure Camp
 

City Scouts is a weekly summer day camp for boys and girls ages 10-13 in the heart of downtown Toronto. Our mission is to foster kid’s sense of independence through urban adventure. We play games, compete in challenges and try foods around our amazing city. The campers gain the knowledge and confidence to begin navigating the transit system and exploring our city independently!


The Our Kids review of City Scouts: Urban Adventure Camp

 

We often think of camp as synonymous with the presence of a lake, some forest, canoes and campfires. Of course, camp isn’t that. You could even have all those things and still not have camp. A better definition would be this: counsellors who work to bring kids together to have fun, to grow, to experience new things, and to build friendships, skills and resilience. And, while City Scouts may not look like the camp stereotype, it nevertheless provides all of those things in abundance. Riley Millican founded City Scouts in a belief in the power of counsellors’ ability to build great relationships, and in the understanding that the urban jungle, in and of itself, is a fantastic place to explore. This isn’t about going to attractions—the ROM one day, the AGO the next, and Wonderland at the end of the week—but really digging in and experiencing the city in and of itself. Which, frankly, kids love, as well they should. The city is a vibrant place that they often only see while on their way somewhere; they lack authentic opportunities to interact with the spaces and the people they find there. City Camp is, for many kids, a unique opportunity to slow down, even within the urban rush, and to explore their world in a new way with a bunch of other kids just like them, and all wearing the same t-shirts. For parents, it’s a great, eminently cost-effective option, right there on your doorstep.

Director's Message

Riley Millican, Minister of fun and saftey

Hi there,

My Name is Riley and I am the founder of City Scouts: Urban Adventure camp. The Idea for this camp stretches back to a summer I spent in the city at 12 years old. I had grown sick of day camps and wanted to just hang out in the city. Unfortunately, I didn't know what to do with myself and ended up watching a lot of tv. This camp is a way of going back in time to show myself the infinite amount of things that a kid can do in the city with a bit of creativity.

I'd also like to say that I take the safety of this camp very seriously and will work my hardest to ensure that every City Scout enjoys beautiful summer days in the city in the safest way possible. All staff are police checked and first aid certified.

Sincerely,

Riley Millican

Stories


"He discovered new places"

"Our son went to City Scouts last summer and gained a whole new appreciation for Toronto. He tried new things. He discovered new places. And he gained the confidence to navigate the TTC. He's looking forward to doing it again this summer"

...



"An amazingly special camp"

"As a parent in Toronto, there is so much to be worried about and there is a tendency to protect kids from any risk to the point that they are never given freedom to explore. Riley Millican has created an amazingly special camp that gave my son the opportunity to learn more about our city and the tools to navigate it! We will definitely be signing up again for this summer."
