About this camp

Harbourfront Centre Camps
 

Since 1979, Harbourfront Centre Camps have fostered exploration, creativity and personal growth within a positive atmosphere. We inspire campers through meaningful participation and enriched experiences in all facets of art, culture and recreation. Proudly offering over 90 different camps and one of the most diverse experiences in Toronto, we have something for every camper!


The Our Kids review of Harbourfront Centre Camps

 

Some camps are up north, in the bush, away from the all the hustle and bustle of the city, and one of the great strengths of the Harbourfront Centre programs is that it isn’t: it’s nearby, close to all of the resources of the city. Because of that, it offers a greater range of activity that you’ll find anywhere, including everything from theatre arts, to sports, to digital storytelling, and on and on. The staffing benefits from the proximity to the city, with instructors bringing a rich range of experience and expertise. Campers enroll within areas of interest, and in so doing enter a setting of peers who share that interest, an experience that in itself can be transformative. Most of the programs are day programs, though not all are—there are overnight options as well, including during the March break. There are PA day sessions as well. Now entering their fourth decade, the Harbourfront Centre programs are as established as any you’ll find anywhere, inclusive of a unique culture and approach to learning, doing, and having fun.

Rankin Middlebrook, Manager, Recreational Learning

Hello Camp Families! 

Since 1979, Harbourfront Centre Camps has provided opportunities for exploration, creativity and personal growth within a positive camp atmosphere where participants are inspired through meaningful participation and enriching experiences in all facets of arts and contemporary culture. Camp provides a unique setting in which learning and fun intersect and critical life skills are honed.

We are committed to creating a safe, inclusive and diverse learning community that allows our campers to learn and interpret the world in which we live through dialogue, social interaction and facilitated hands-on activities. Harbourfront Centre’s unique location and institutional experience allows us to focus on giving our campers a fun and enriching experience.

The 2018 camp season was one of our most successful to date! Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated staff and ongoing support from our camp families, we welcomed more than 6,000 campers to our home on Toronto’s waterfront.

As we look to the 2019 camp season, we are pleased to announce a number of new camps for the upcoming year, such as Leaders in the City, Magic, Craft and Vlogging.

This year we have reorganized camps to more clearly communicate our offerings: Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Exploratory, Canoe and Kayak, Specialty and Science, Sailing, Leadership and Overnight, and Circus Arts.

Harbourfront Centre is a registered charity and not-for-profit organization. By sending your children to our camps you are supporting all of the outstanding programs and events that Harbourfront Centre offers year-round. Revenue generated from our camp program enhances Harbourfront Centre as a whole, and for that we truly appreciate your ongoing support!

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to another outstanding year of fun, diverse, dynamic and creative programming at Harbourfront Centre Camps!

Sincerely, 
Harbourfront Centre Camps

Feedback from our 2016 Season!expand

"Everyone loved everything about camp"

"He had a fantastic time and always enjoys the great counselors and activities"

"My son absolutely loved the Camp.  He went for one week without a friend and could not have been happier.  I found everything about the process easy."

"All the programs were fantastic. They loved the variety of activities that were planned each day, the counselors were very helpful and fun."

"He loved the whole experience and talked for weeks after about coming back."

"My son had a great time at canoe camp - he spoke highly of his counselors and the activities"

"She LOVED her Camp experience. She thought it was a good mix of fun and challenge"

"Totally loved it. Wished they had started coming 2 years earlier (their own words)."

"My son loved his counselors.  The two counselors had a huge impact on my son.  I cannot even begin to describe it.  I had registered him for 2 weeks and he asked for one more week to be with these two incredible young men.  As a parent, I am thankful that he had the opportunity to spend time with these two.  Very positive influence!!"

"My daughter came home every afternoon speaking very highly of her camp counselors."

"Yes, so much! Everyday we picked her up was "the best day ever"."

"The choice of camps for older children was amazing!  I had trouble looking for things to do this summer with my new 14 year-old and Harbourfront Centre Camps gave her an opportunity to DO something instead of just sit at home.  There was an amazing variety and I was so pleased to  have been told by my friend!  I find most camps only focus on younger children but kids between the ages of 10-14 need to be active and stimulated too.  Thank you for making her summer all that much more interesting during the day when parents need to be at work."

"She had a wonderful time, and is already looking forward to going next summer."
